At Medica this year, 293 British firms responsible for some of the most recent advances in health technology are demonstrating their innovations, supported by UK Trade and Investment (UKTI), through its Trade Show Access Programme (TAP).
Among these is Sheffield-based InterVene Ltd, which is launching onto the international market a range of new products. These include the InterVene Safety Needle – the world’s first manually retractable hypodermic needle that reduces the risk of injury and contamination through contact. This is already used in the NHS.
Lab M, a specialist in microbiology media, is launching three products that isolate and identify an organism associated with infections in newborns fed on formula milk — innovations that could significantly reduce cases of infant meningitis and enteritis.
These are only two of the notable UK innovators showing at Medica today.
Additionally, for the 60th NHS birthday celebration, the British stand is giving delegates 512 mb memory sticks shaped as a doctor (shown here), plus badges, and the names of delegates who register at the stand will be entered for a draw for four prizes.
