08 Nov MediPurpose Publishes First SurgiLance Safety Lancet Quality Report
ATLANTA, Oct. 31 — MediPurpose™, a master distributor and manufacturer of medical devices, yesterday published an annual quality report for its SurgiLance™ safety lancet.
The report, the first that MediPurpose has publicly published, showed a complaint rate of less than one in five million for fiscal year 2012.
The report also illustrated a downward trend in annual complaint rates since FY 2003.
“We are very proud of our SurgiLance safety lancet’s quality record,” said MediPurpose founder and CEO Patrick Yi. “Of course, the goal always is to not have any complaints, which is a significant challenge considering the millions of lancets that we sell each year.
“Still, we will continue to strive to manufacture a superior safety lancet and to provide world-class customer service to our medical device customers.”
Yi added that the company will publish more statistics in future quality reports.
