Merit Medical Launches One-Vac™ Evacuated Drainage Bottle for Percutaneous Fluid Collection and Discard

SOUTH JORDAN, Utah, Aug. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Merit Medical Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MMSI), a leading manufacturer and marketer of proprietary disposable medical devices used in interventional, diagnostic, and therapeutic procedures, particularly in cardiology, radiology, oncology, critical care, and endoscopy, today announced the commercial launch of the One-Vac™ Evacuated Drainage Bottle (One-Vac) for use to aspirate, remove, or sample body fluids.

The One-Vac is ideal for thoracentesis and paracentesis procedures and patients with diseases that require fluid drainage as part of their care plan. The One-Vac features an advanced design that makes collection and discard simple, efficient, and safe. An ergonomic handle allows you to start, stop, and regulate flow with ease. The handle is also easy to remove, minimizing spills during discard. The bottleneck is easy to hold, and the entire device is made of durable plastic designed to prevent breakage.

“We designed the One-Vac Evacuated Drainage Bottle to provide a smarter option for aspirating, removing, or sampling percutaneous fluids,” said Fred P. Lampropoulos, Merit Medical’s Chairman and CEO. “The product’s launch represents an important milestone for our expanding drainage portfolio, which we’ve developed by applying physician feedback, investing in new technologies, and improving upon legacy products. Early adopters have praised the device’s intuitive ease of use, resealing capability, and start-and-stop activation method. We are grateful for the customer feedback provided to date and look forward to bringing more innovative new technologies to market soon.”
