OPTI Medical Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of IDEXX Laboratories since February 1, 2007, is a fast developing, international diagnostics business with operations in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, serving the high growth, near patient testing market targeting small to medium sized hospitals.
The portable OPTI product line of blood gas analyzers first came to the US healthcare market in 1995 under the name of AVL Medical Instruments, although AVL had been a leading company in the blood gas analyzer industry since 1967. To date, the OPTI product line has established market positions throughout the world with an existing customer base of over 5,000 instruments already in use, with approximately one-third in the US. Revenue is generated through sales of new instruments and ongoing repeat sales of proprietary reagents to facilitate analysis.
OPTI Medical Systems employs an experienced team of about 90 employees under the management of Alfred Marek, who originally pioneered this business while under the AVL Medical Instruments name.
The OPTI Medical critical care business is focused on portable instruments for measurement of time sensitive diagnostics tests such as blood gas, electrolyte and metabolite analysis. These analyzers are primarily used in the emergency room, operating room, cardiac monitoring area and any location where time-critical diagnostic testing is performed within the hospital setting.
The OPTI analyzers utilize a sensor technology based on optical fluorescence sensors and the process of optical reflectance. The major advantages of this technology are its reliability and stability, which makes the technology superior to electrochemical based systems.
OPTI Medical's established operational infrastructure and strong international distributor network support its worldwide sales.
