Exhaled breath and gas monitoring instrument manufacturer Bedfont® Scientific has landed an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with medical device innovator, Laborie, opening up greater overseas markets.

Under the terms of the agreement, of which financial details were not disclosed, the UK-based business will deliver its Gastrolyzer range of hydrogen (H2) and methane breath monitors to the Canadian outfit.

“Thanks to Laborie, breath analysis will now be available in medical markets worldwide that Bedfont did not have access to before”

Bedfont’s Gastrolyzer range investigates and detects gastrointestinal disorders in a quick, efficient and non-evasive method. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

Bedfont’s General Manager Jason Smith enthused, “These OEMs are part of our expansion plan for our core breath business. The aim is to make breath analysis global and easily accessible, and thanks to Laborie, breath analysis will now be available in medical markets worldwide that Bedfont did not have access to before.”

This major OEM deal reinforces Bedfont’s global presence and reputation after Bedfont recently agreed another OEM contract with Global Medicare for the Gastrolyzer range exclusively in India.
