Millar Completes Exit from Telemetry Product Sales and Transitions to Life Sciences OEM Partnership Model


HOUSTON, Oct. 23, 2018, /PRNewswire/ -- Millar, Inc., medical device manufacturer and OEM solutions provider, today announces the company will finalize its exit from the life sciences telemetry market on December 31, 2018. Millar sold the telemetry product line to Kaha Sciences in December 2017 but maintained a distribution partnership for the European markets. To fully complete the transition, Millar will exit out of distributor sales and maintain a business relationship with Kaha Sciences as an OEM pressure sensor integration solutions partner.

Millar currently provides pressure-sensing capabilities to Kaha Sciences to deliver high-fidelity pressure measurements for implantable telemetry research devices. Millar will continue to work collaboratively with Kaha to develop custom pressure sensor solutions to meet the needs of an ever-changing, increasingly competitive life science marketplace. Millar leverages proven design techniques and process controls to ensure each part is manufactured with a focus on quality and reliability. Through collaborative communication, both companies maintain alignment between forecast models, customer demand, and inventory availability.

With a lab to life vision of improving medical technology, Millar continues to see value in providing innovation and quality measuring capabilities to the life sciences market. This is where most innovations for the medical industry begin, and accurate, reliable measurements are critical to make new discoveries, publish data and take those findings into device or pharmaceutical development.

Millar's catheter-based sensor technology has been cited in thousands of peer-reviewed journals for the life sciences market. Additionally, Millar continues to support this market through the distribution agreement with ADInstruments for Millar's life science pressure and pressure-volume catheters.
