FALL RIVER, Mass., March 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Millstone Medical Outsourcing announced today that the company recently signed agreements with four companies to provide loaner kit processing services through Millstone Medical's Memphis, TN, facility, which opened in October 2007. Two of the customers utilizing the climate-controlled, centrally-located facility are Innovative Spinal Technologies, Inc. and OMNI life sciences, Inc. While the service is adapted to the particular needs of each client, loaner kit processing, in general, includes inspection, cleaning, replenishment, distribution, and tracking of surgical loaner kits used for a variety of orthopedic operations. Millstone, outsource partner to the industry's top orthopedic companies, is the fast-growing provider of aftermarket services, start-up solutions, and premier contract packaging services for medical device manufacturers worldwide.
"Millstone Medical Outsourcing offers medical device manufacturers an opportunity to outsource loaner programs. By doing so, we help them manage costs, increase efficiency, and focus on core competencies -- all without compromising quality," said Christopher Ramsden, Millstone Chief Executive Officer. "Our new Memphis facility, dedicated to loaner kit processing and medical device warehousing and distribution, is strategically located to allow for extended service hours and expedited shipping."
OMNI life sciences, Inc. is a designer, manufacturer, and distributor of high-quality medical devices developed specifically for the orthopedics segment of the healthcare industry.

The company also employs Millstone to sterilize and package products at Millstone's Fall River, MA, location.
"As a company, we believe our focus should be on the design, development, and marketing of advanced orthopedic devices. Outsourcing to Millstone enables us to more effectively manage our loaner kit program. Later cut off times for next day shipments allow us to be more responsive to the needs of our clients. With the knowledge that our loaner kit processing is in good hands, we are able to continue to direct our efforts towards the innovation of new products," said Eeuwout Hoogendijk, Director of Operations, OMNI life science.
Innovative Spinal Technologies, Inc. is a spine technology company that develops solutions for spinal degeneration that preserve motion and are minimally invasive.
