Cook Medical Group has landed a new contract which will distribute one of its products to more than 50,000 health care providers.

Cook produces a catheter, a device used to administer medicine or drain waste from a patient undergoing treatment.

“The technology we refer to as Spectrum,” said Cook Corporate Account Executive, Chris Smith. “This will now be used by 54, 000 clients of Amerinet, a firm which acts as a purchasing co-op for medical offices.”

Smith said the product is mainly for patients who stay in a hospital for several days and features two important additives.

“The convergence or use of two antibiotics, minocycline and rifampin, are used to create a barrier with the catheter to prevent infection,” Smith said.

The contract is effective immediately.
