Accumetrics signs a distribution agreement with Grifols for its VerifyNow System in Spain, Portugal and Chile

Accumetrics, Inc. has announced the signing of a new exclusive distribution agreement for its VerifyNow(R) System in Spain, Portugal and Chile with Grifols S.A.. This distribution agreement will continue to expand Accumetrics' reach in both scope and geography, and add to the growing numbers of countries where physicians have access to the VerifyNow System.

The VerifyNow System assesses response to life-saving antiplatelet therapies, such as aspirin, Plavix(R), Effient(R) and GP IIb/IIIa inhibitors. Patients respond to antiplatelet medications differently and these tests help physicians ensure their patients are receiving the optimal treatment.

"We're extremely excited to see distribution of our VerifyNow System reach Spain, Portugal and Chile. We have chosen Grifols as our exclusive partner based on their demonstrated market development expertise as well as their existing customer base," said Timothy I. Still, President and CEO of Accumetrics. "This partnership continues to emphasize our focus on expanding our global distribution channels, and supports our vision to provide physicians access to critical information for managing their cardiovascular patients on antiplatelet therapies."

"We are pleased to join forces with Accumetrics in the distribution of the VerifyNow System in the Spanish, Portuguese and Chilean markets. This system perfectly complements Grifols' Hemostasis line of products and aligns with our marketing and sales strategy," added Ramon Riera, Vice President of Grifols S.A.
