GI Supply appoints Nexcore to manufacture the Polar Wand endoscopic cryotherapy system

Nexcore Technology : 07 October, 2008  (Company News)
Nexcore Technology has reached an agreement with GI Supply of Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, for Nexcore to manufacture GI Supply's Polar Wand, which is a portable device that uses endoscopic cryotherapy to control bleeding from mucosal lesions of the gastrointestinal tract in patients resistant to conventional endoscopic therapy.
Nexcore is transitioning the product from industrial design to manufacturing.

Polar Wand distributes a freezing spray to treat bleeding in the GI tract. It is low cost, easy to operate and can target large areas. The Polar Wand was introduced in May 2008 and the product is now being shipped. The Bolt Group was the industrial designer.

'Without missing a beat, Nexcore took the Bolt Group's design and quickly set up and tested the manufacturing process,' said Frank Carter, chief executive officer of GI Supply. 'Their attention to us, understanding of our product and speed in getting the product to market was vital as we had lost valuable time when we started with another company.'

According to Milton Frank, president and chief executive officer of Nexcore, 'Our facilities are set up to take the industrial design provided by a client and quickly move into the manufacturing phase. In the case of the Polar Wand, it was important that we moved the product to market as quickly as possible without surrendering product integrity.'
