Merge Healthcare Enters Into Agreement With Pangaea

Pangaea to provide bundled solution of Merge CIE and CCD in China

By CBR Staff Writer

Merge Healthcare has reported that its Merge China business unit has signed a distribution agreement with Pangaea Technology, a distributor of CCD detectors, which are an economical alternative to digital detectors, for DR systems in the Greater China area.

As per the agreement Pangaea is expected to provide the Chinese DR market with a bundled solution consisting of Merge CIE (Cedara Image Enhancement) and CCD through their eight offices and wide distribution channels in China.

Richard Fung, president and CEO of Pangaea, said: “After the healthcare reform plan was announced in China early this year, we recognised that there would be large demand for economical DR solutions in the rural healthcare market. Many local modality manufacturers have since switched their product lines to address a cost conscious, big volume market. We believe the CCD sensor and Merge CIE is a solution that will fit into this market perfectly.

“During this preliminary stage of work with Merge China, our customers are quite happy and satisfied with the enhanced images filtered by CIE, the flexibility of the tuning tools, and the timely response through Merge’s local technical team. With Merge’s extensive knowledge and advanced technologies in the medical imaging domain, we expect to dramatically grow our CCD shipment during 2010, and we are looking at the healthcare industry as our key growth market in the future.”

Justin Dearborn, CEO of Merge, said: “Pangaeais a very important distributor in China for our CIE solution. The quality and cost of the CCD has been well recognised by the market, and Pangaea’s wide distribution channel and existing customer base has already shown significant interest in the bundled solution. This is a perfect combination of technologies and marketing channels, and we look forward to bringing more of our technologies to their solution in the future.”
