NxStage(R) Announces Extension of Medisystems Needle Supply and Distribution Agreement
Date:7/21/2009

LAWRENCE, Mass., July 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NxStage Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXTM), a leading manufacturer of innovative dialysis products, today announced that its Medisystems subsidiary has extended for three years a supply and distribution agreement with Fenwal, Inc. of Lake Zurich, Ill. Medisystems provides needle sets and assemblies to Fenwal, a global medical technology company focused on improving blood collection, separation, safety and availability for patient care. Medisystems products involved in this agreement include the MasterGuard needle sets with FingerShield(TM) safety technology, the leading worldwide needle-stick prevention device.

"Medisystems is delighted to continue its relationship with Fenwal," said Jeffrey H. Burbank, Chief Executive Officer of NxStage Medical. "This agreement provides further validation of our ability to continue to drive steady growth in end-user demand with Medisystems' innovative, high quality, value added product offerings."

MasterGuard Anti-Stick Needle Protector is the only guarded pheresis needle proven to reduce needlestick injuries, as compared to conventional, unguarded needles. Medisystems' patented FingerShield technology helps protect medical technicians' and caregivers' pressure-holding fingers during pheresis procedures. MasterGuard is also designed to allow for optimal visualization of the needle and does not interfere with site selection, cannulation technique or tapedown for patient safety and procedural efficacy during pheresis.
