Alaris Medical is to license Caesarea Medical Electronics' pole-mounted volumetric infusion pump technology in an exclusive agreement. Alaris will build intravenous infusion pumps using the technology at its factory in Basingstoke, in the UK. Alaris claims a leading position in infusion systems internationally, and the company will direct the new product at developing markets, initially Latin America and the Far East. Alaris, of San Diego in the US, will then adapt the product for the international infusion, general care hospital and homecare markets. It estimates the combined market potential of these businesses at around $100 million.
