SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/11/14 -- Ivera Medical Corporation has met the stringent requirements for a minority-owned business enterprise (MBE) for the third consecutive year. The Grand Canyon Minority Supplier Development Council has renewed the certification for MBE status, as defined by the National Minority Supplier Development Council certification guidelines.
"Our MBE certification is important to us and is a source of pride," said Bob Rogers, Ivera Medical CEO. "This certification helps Ivera open doors with healthcare providers and purchasing organizations who seek diversity and appreciate the competitive value an MBE can bring to their supply contracting."
Ivera Medical is focused on the manufacture and sales of the Curos® line of products including passive disinfection port protectors that disinfect and then guard luer activated swabbable valves against contamination between venous accesses. The vibrant green cap assures high visibility compliance with hospital infection prevention protocols while its design minimizes potential alcohol spillage and packaging waste. Effective use requires only that caregivers peel off a foil seal and twist the cap onto any needleless connector. Inside the cap, a 70% isopropyl alcohol (IPA) saturated sponge continually bathes the port for effective, consistent and reliable disinfection.
