Redsense receives first order based on the Consip tender in Italy
Redsense Medical AB (publ) announces that a first order valued at 150 KSEK has been received from the company’s Italian business partner Spindial based on the large Consip tender where Spindial was declared one of five winners. The deliveries are now starting and will continue for five years.
Spindial’s winning offer was the first in a large public tender where a DBB-EXA dialysis machine from Nikkiso and the Redsense blood leakage alarm was offered together with a direct connection between the systems. This makes it possible to automatically and immediately stop the blood flow, and thus offer superior patient safety that was a major contributing factor to the result in the procurement.
The result in the tender, and the fact that the decision was declared final after a long appealing process, is to be considered a market breakthrough for Redsense.
"The concept Spindial offered was new in a public tender context, but it was still declared one of the winners and took second place in the tender’s quality ranking. This says a lot about Spindial’s impressive work as well as the products included in their offer. Redsense is now setting a new standard for patient safety during hemodialysis treatments that has received major attention all over Europe. Based on this, Redsense plays a major role in ongoing public tender processes, and the interest in including a direct connection to Redsense in upcoming dialysis machine models from additional manufacturers has increased significantly,” saysRedsense Medical’s CEO Patrik Byhmer.
"It has taken a long time and a lot of hard work to become a winner in this tender, and it is therefore very satisfying to be able to start with the deliveries. We look forward to continue our successful collaboration with Redsense during the delivery process,” says Marcello Grondelli, Spindial’s CEO.
The Consip tender in Italy covers over 3 million dialysis treatment over 5 years in total.
