Ambu Inc., the world leader in single-use endoscopes, announced today that it has been granted a national single-use endoscopy contract in the category of Single-Use Endoscopes with a major U.S. Group Purchasing Organization (GPO). This contract gives Ambu a sole position in both single-use bronchoscopes and single-use rhinolaryngoscopes for the duration of the contract.
The single-use endoscopy category is new for the GPO and will be effective through November 2023 and enables Ambu to more effectively serve 160 acute care hospitals in the United States and over 2,600 total sites across 20+ states. This agreement can further accelerate Ambu’s share of the single-use endoscope market by giving those accounts pre-negotiated pricing and terms for Ambu’s bronchoscopy and rhinolaryngoscopy products.
“We’re seeing a trend that GPOs now create dedicated single-use endoscopy categories which means that hospitals and health care providers get easier access to advanced single-use devices. With our portfolio in innovative single-use endoscopy, we are the ideal partner to help medical professionals prevent device-related infections and improve healthcare economics,” said Juan Jose Gonzalez, CEO of Ambu A/S.
