Production Facility for Analyser Opens in Wales

Feb 15 2016

Edwina Hart, Minister for Economy, Science and Transport for the Welsh Government, has officially opened Sphere Medical’s new manufacturing facility in St. Asaph, Wales, for the production of its Proxima patient-dedicated blood gas analyser.

Including a high tech clean room, the new facilities will provide the necessary manufacturing capacity in order to meet an expected growing demand for the analyser, which can deliver faster and more frequent blood gas results during a patient’s critical period. Blood drawn directly from the patient for analysis is then returned to the patient; this avoids blood loss and reduces infection risks to a broad patient demographic, including paediatric patients.

“The official opening of our new manufacturing facility marks a significant moment for Sphere, as the benefits of using Proxima in a critical care setting are realised and demand through Europe grows. For example, we were pleased to recently report news of our first sale of Proxima to a major teaching hospital in Germany for the close management of unstable, critically ill patients,” said Dr. Wolfgang Rencken, Chief Executive Officer of Sphere Medical. “We are grateful to the Minister, the Welsh Government and the Wales Life Sciences Investment Fund for their support with this development.”
