The French delegation to CMEF-IVD Shanghai is once again embodying the innovative spirit for which French medical device manufacturers are well-known. From May 15-18 2017, the French Pavilion run by Business France – the national agency for the development of the French economy – is hosting the following 18 exhibitors:
ACTEON (dental care), AIRLIQUIDE (medical gas systems), ATA-MEDICAL, (equipment for medical gases), BIOMERIEUX (IVD), EURADIS INTERNATIONAL (women healthcare), EVOLUCARE (healthcare software), HANDLE (medical tubes and cannulas), IMPETO MEDICAL (diabetic autonomic neuropathy diagnosis devices), JRI (temperature monitoring devices), MEDICAL GROUP CORP (orthopedic and dental products), MEDINOVA (wound dressing), NOVAIR (medical gas systems), SAFT (batteries), SCALEO (patient transfer, respiratory products), SOLUSCOPE (endoscope reprocessing solutions), TECHNOLOGIE MEDICALE (oxygen therapy devices), THUASNE (comprehensive range of medical devices), VITALAIRE (insulin pump & consumables).
Almost half of these exhibitors, already well-established in China, will be represented by their own local subsidiaries. “Made in France” is particularly well in-tune with the Chinese medical device market and its strong emphasis on innovation. This shared interest already has been stimulating Sino-French partnerships in distribution and R&D for years now. Today, these collaborative efforts are further enhanced by the action of the French Heathcare Alliance.
