Z-Medica® Announces Distribution Deal with Tryco Incorporated
Provides QuikClot® Products to the Department of Veteran Affairs
Wallingford, CT, March 3, 2015 – Z-Medica®, LLC, a leading developer and marketer of hemostatic devices, announces today that the company has signed a distribution agreement with Tryco Incorporated to make the QuikClot® product line available, via the Federal Supply Schedule, to the Department of Defense, Department of Veteran Affairs, and other US Government medical treatment facilities.
Tryco provides procurement solutions that deliver medical products to veterans and active-duty military, serving over 400 hospitals and 1,600 clinics worldwide.
“Our QuikClot Combat Gauze® earned its stripes on the front line with our military, helping to save the lives of those injured in battle,” said Stephen J. Fanning, President and CEO of Z-Medica. “We are pleased that our hemostatic products will now be available in VA facilities here at home.”
The unpredictable nature of patient care requires a reliable way to achieve hemostasis. QuikClot hemostatic devices are as safe and easy to use as standard gauze, but stop bleeding significantly faster when applied with pressure. They help reduce the need for more expensive treatments and establish stability to get patients to the next level of care.
