Vapi, India (PRWEB) February 13, 2013

Meril Life Sciences Pvt. Ltd., a medical device manufacturer specializing in products for coronary applications, has received regulatory approval to market its Mozec rapid-exchange PCTA balloon dilatation catheter in Singapore.

Available in multiple diameters and lengths, Mozec can be used in a variety of balloon angioplasty procedures.

Meril Life Sciences pursued medical device registration in Singapore for Mozec following moves in recent months by the country’s market regulator, the Health Sciences Authority (HSA), to develop a more transparent and efficient approval process. Emergo Group, an Austin, Texas-based medical device regulatory consulting firm with local offices in Singapore, assisted Meril to obtain marketing authorization from the HSA.

Meril Life Sciences regulatory team explains that Emergo Group’s expertise in multiple medical device markets including those in Southeast Asia was a major factor in deciding to partner with the consultancy. The manufacturer also had previous experience utilizing Emergo Group’s services in other medical device markets.

“Emergo Group is a globally present, professional regulatory consultancy, and Meril has had good success working with the firm due to their responsiveness and clear understanding of global regulatory requirements.”

“By registering Mozec with the HSA, Meril Life Sciences can now establish itself in Singapore’s dynamic and highly transparent medical device market,” says Bryan Gilburg, Vice President of Business Development at Emergo Group. “Our local presence in Singapore allowed us to provide hands-on support for Meril Life Sciences’ commercialization effort.”
