Technical Merit and Pricing Key Factors

MUNDELEIN, Ill., Oct. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Sysmex America, Inc. today announced that the company has been awarded a hematology contract extension by group purchasing organization MedAssets Supply Chain Systems.

This contract extends the original contract between the companies that originated in April 2004.

"MedAssets Supply Chain Systems awards contracts to companies based on extensive criteria including product quality and customer service. Sysmex America's proven performance with our customers during the past three years, including an award in MedAssets' first ever Group Buy Initiative for hematology, merits the extension of the company's contract. Sysmex's offer of exceptional value through this program underscores their commitment to our customer base," said Mary Ellen Kimmeth, Vice President, Laboratory & Capital Equipment Services, MedAssets Supply Chain Systems.

"We at Sysmex America are pleased that MedAssets and its customers will retain its working relationship with our company. Their access to reliable and proven Sysmex hematology analyzers will serve them well as they seek greater efficiency and effectiveness in an increasingly challenging healthcare environment," said Kershaw.

Sysmex hematology products included in the MedAssets contract agreement range from the pocH-100i(TM) and the KX-21N(TM) for small laboratories to the fully automated XE-Alpha N(TM) and HST-N(TM) Integrated Hematology Systems with automated slide preparation capabilities.
