Polymedco is an innovative
company that often leads the marketplace with new products. The company
has been equally successful in developing new markets, as well as
expanding existing markets that are left untapped of their full potential.
In 1995, Polymedco introduced a magnetic separation method for HDL which
proved to be a breakthrough in conventional testing means for cholesterol.
In 1996, the company introduced its Sed-Chek® 2 ESR control
which became the product leader in sedrate controls and encouraged the use
of quality control procedures. In 1997, Polymedco worked closely with
Biomira and received FDA clearance for the Truquant BR® breast
tumor marker which brought a new method of testing to breast cancer
patients. In 1999, Polymedco’s BTA stat® test for recurrent
bladder cancer detection received FDA clearance for prescription home use.
The recent market introduction of the Poly-Chem™ Chemistry/Immunoassay
analyzer marks Polymedco’s latest marketing achievement. This compact
and technically advanced counter top instrument offers users the most
extensive menu on the market and the ability to consolidate work stations.
In July of 1998, Polymedco
purchased Bard Diagnostic Sciences (renamed Alidex, Inc.), a diagnostic
subsidiary of C.R. Bard. With this addition, Polymedco maintains an ISO
9001 manufacturing and research facility located in Redmond, Washington.
Polymedco’s success lies in its
ability to select innovative and competitive products, develop strong
sales and marketing strategies, and maintain a high level of technical and
customer support. As Polymedco continues to grow, we continue to search
out new products and new market opportunities. Look to Polymedco to meet
