Dehaier Medical Systems Signs $1.6 Million Oxygen-Chip Sales Contract
BEIJING, July 6 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Dehaier Medical Systems Ltd. (Nasdaq: DHRM), an emerging leader in the development, assembly, marketing and sale of medical devices and homecare medical products in China, announced today that it has signed a contract to sell 10,000 oxygen-chip units to Beijing C&D Co., Ltd. for RMB11 million (about $1.58 million).
The patented oxygen-chip, jointly developed by Dehaier and the University of Science and Technology Beijing in 2008, is the core part of an oxygen concentrator. The oxygen concentrator's small size and simplified procedures for oxygen production ensure that oxygen density reaches 93%. Such high concentrations of oxygen are important for use by patients with cardiovascular disease, respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and geriatric patients. Dehaier oxygen-chip production technology is widely regarded as an industry leader.
CEO Ping Chen said, "This sales contract substantiates the strong competitive advantage enjoyed by our home oxygen therapy products and their influence in the market. This gives us confidence about our ability to expand our sales to the overseas home oxygen therapy market. With our proprietary oxygen-chip, any manufacturing factory will be able to produce state-of-the- art oxygen concentrators, which can be used to create standard oxygen density with pressure supply devices."
