Shvabe Holding has sent Biliflex phototherapeutic equipment to Greece for treating jaundice in newborns. The pilot delivery was arranged to let local doctors test the equipment and discuss its export potential.
The device ensures quick and efficient decrease of bilirubin levels in newborns with jaundice. The equipment allows to hold the baby during the entire procedure. Biliflex can also be used along with an incubator or a heater. The Ural Optical and Mechanical Plant named after E.S. Yalamov (UOMP) of the Holding is responsible for production of this equipment. The company specializes in the production of neonatal medical equipment, which is currently in high demand on the Russian and European markets as well as in Asia and Africa.
“We are continually expanding our export volumes of medical equipment and strengthening collaboration with Greece. We have already supplied Greece with neonatal irradiators designed to treat jaundice in infants. New equipment is more efficient and enables health recovery by employing additional tools”, said CEO of UOMP Anatoly Slydnikh.
UOMP is expanding equipment deliveries and entering foreign markets. In 2021, the Holding shipped neonatal equipment to Mongolia, Senegal and Estonia for the first time. The enterprise has also registered a neonatal incubator in Malaysia.
