Yukon Medical, manufacturer of Arisure Closed System Transfer Device named finalist

DURHAM N.C., May 1, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Yukon Medical today announced that the Arisure Closed System Transfer

Device has been selected as a finalist in the Drug-Delivery and Combination Products category of the 21st Annual Medical Design Excellence Awards competition. The 2019 winners will be announced at the MDEA Ceremony on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 in conjunction with the MD&M East event, organized by UBM, taking place at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York.

The Arisure Closed System Transfer Device was designed to provide the easiest workflow on the market for drug preparation and to protect healthcare professionals from exposure to harmful vapors when compounding, transporting, and delivering drugs. The Arisure CSTD is needle-free and mechanically and microbiologically closed to prevent contaminants from escaping or entering the system.

Yukon Medical launched the Arisure system in early 2018 and the system is already gaining traction in several countries around the world, particularly in the United States. Yukon Medical engaged the assistance of their partners in the development and commercialization of the Arisure CSTD. EG-GILERO is a contract product development company based in nearby Morrisville, NC and Industrie Borla (Borla), a medical device manufacturer based near Torino, Italy. Both EG-GILERO and Borla were instrumental in the development and commercialization of the Arisure CSTD.

"Many years of hard work went into designing a system that is very easy to use and also safeguards the clinician from exposure to hazardous drugs," said Todd Korogi, Yukon Medical CEO "so we are honored to be named one of this year's finalists for the Medical Design Excellence Award."

The MDEA are the medtech industry's premier design competition committed to recognizing significant achievements in medical product design and engineering that improve the quality of healthcare delivery and accessibility. The awards program celebrates the accomplishments of the medical device manufacturers, their suppliers, and the many people behind the scenes—engineers, scientists, designers, and clinicians—who are responsible for the cutting-edge products that are saving lives; improving patient healthcare; and transforming medtech—one innovation at a time.

The 2019 MDEA Juror Panel selected 46 exceptional finalists in nine medical technology product categories. Products were judged based on design and engineering innovation; function and user-related innovation; patient benefits; business benefits; and overall benefit to the healthcare system. Unlike other design competitions that are merely styling contests, the MDEA jury is comprised of a balance of practicing doctors, nurses, and technicians alongside industrial designers, engineers, manufacturers, and human factors experts.
