ICU Medical Company Profile

13:48 EDT 18th March 2018 | BioPortfolio

ICU Medical was founded in 1984 by Dr. George Lopez, a practicing internist who imagined that there must be a better way of securing I.V. lines after tragically losing a patient due to an accidental disconnect. Dr. Lopez conceived a product, later known as the Click Lock, which provided a locking mechanism for these I.V. systems. The Click Lock was comprised of a protected needle which would also serve to prevent health care workers from being accidentally stuck by the I.V. needles. Today, with a market cap of close to 500 million ICU has an impressive list of landmark products including the CLAVE NeedleFree Connector and the CLC2000 Catheter Patency Device. Still led by Dr. Lopez, ICU is solely focused on developing and manufacturing products that not only protect the Health Care worker from accidental needlesticks, but protect the integrity of the patient’s IV system as well.
