STATE COLLEGE, PA – Actuated Medical, Inc. reached agreement with United Kingdom's Kimal PLC to distribute their TubeClear™ system throughout Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa.

The system, which is comprised of reusable control boxes and single-use clearing stems, is designed, developed, and manufactured by Actuated Medical in the United States.
Maureen L. Mulvihill, Ph.D., President of Actuated Medical, commented that, "We are thrilled to partner with a quality organization like Kimal and proud to have them distribute our products across the globe. This system will speed the process of unclogging tubes, save healthcare organizations significant money, and ultimately improve clinical care. The real bonus of this new partnership is the addition of Alan Press, CEO of Kimal, to our Board of Directors."
TubeClear has been cleared by the FDA for commercial distribution and CE Marked. It is available throughout the United States, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.
