Terumo Corporation Concludes Basic Agreement with Olympus Corporation to Expand Business Partnership Covering Medical Interventional System Products in the United States

Terumo Corporation announced that it has concluded a basic agreement with Olympus Corporation to expand their business partnership covering medical interventional system products in the United States. With this move, both companies will, for the first time, jointly market products in the field of Urology in the U.S., as well as explore opportunities to broaden the types of products offered in the field of Gastroenterology, which is already an established area of focus of the partnership. The objective of the expanded partnership is to achieve business growth in the U.S., by leveraging the competitive advantages of both companies. The partnership joins the guidewire brand with the endoscope brand. Olympus and Terumo have jointly developed a guidewire since 2009, which is designed for guiding minimally invasive treatment devices during biliary endoscopy procedures. Through the partnership, Terumo will benefit from the U.S. presence and marketing arm of Olympus in the Urology and Gastroenterology spaces, and Olympus will broaden its assortment of guidewires from Terumo. Terumo’s guidewire has gained widespread endorsements in the U.S. as a diagnostic and intravascular treatment tool. The research and development efforts through the partnership will be aligned toward improving quality of care and advancing minimally invasive procedures. Guidewires produced by Terumo will be supplied by Terumo’s U.S. subsidiary, Terumo Medical Corporation, for Olympus’s U.S. subsidiary, Olympus America Inc. Plans are in place for Olympus America Inc. to distribute—to the US market—Terumo’s urologic products beginning this May and biliary products later in 2015. Terumo also intends to continue separately marketing its interventional system products in the fields of cardiology, peripheral artery disease, and neurovascular disease in the United States.

Olympus Corporation Releases New Biological Microscope

Olympus Corporation has announced that its scientific solutions business has released biological microscope CX23. Olympus supplies an extensive range of biological microscopes that extend from its top-end FLUOVIEW series of microscopes used in the latest life science research through to its workhorse BX3/IX3 series and the CX series of entry-level models used for laboratory teaching in universities and other educational institutions. It is contributing to the progress of life science by offering products that meet a diverse range of needs. The new CX23 is the successor to the existing CX22LED entry-level model and represents the first model change in four years. While maintaining Olympus's tradition of excellent optics performance and durability, the CX23 has been designed to be easy to use, with consideration for the series of steps involved in microscope training, from setup through to observation and tidying up afterwards. This facilitates use of the microscopes in educational training at university and other teaching laboratories.
