PRESS RELEASE : Fluke Biomedical and Korr Medical Technologies form new partnership for gas flow analysis products

CARSON CITY, NV -- Fluke Biomedical, a division of Fluke Corporation, and Korr Medical Technologies, Inc. today announced they have signed an agreement whereby Fluke Biomedical Corporation will acquire the exclusive rights to the technology, manufacturing, and distribution of Korr's gas flow analysis products for ventilator testing.

"We are pleased to have reached agreement with Korr", said Eric Perron, President of Fluke Biomedical Corporation. "VT Plus has been our top selling analyzer since its release in 2000. With its new full RT-200 emulation and high frequency oscillatory ventilation testing capabilities, we expect even broader acceptance among hospital biomedical departments, independent service organizations, medical device manufacturers, and the military."

"The unique bi-directional flow measurement capability of the VT Plus and its new ability to measure flows and pressures at breath rates up to 900 breaths per minute make it the only choice for testing high frequency oscillatory and high frequency conventional ventilators. The on-board graphic display makes using the VT Plus like having an oscilloscope for your ventilator," said Scott Kofoed, President of Korr Medical Technologies, Inc. "We are excited that Fluke Biomedical has committed to continuing and solidifying the relationship with Korr Medical Technologies."
