Haldor Advanced Technologies Ltd., the leading provider of RFID-enabled surgical item visibility solution for hospitals and sterilization centers, and Device Technologies, a leading Australian distributor of medical devices, signed a cooperation agreement that will enable the distribution of Haldor’s RFID solutions in Australia and New Zealand.

Device Technologies’ distinguished reputation and leading position in the Australian and New Zealand markets in collaboration with Haldor’s breakthrough and leading technology in the field of surgical items management and tracking will bring significant value to hospitals in these two important markets. The value will be realized through optimizing processing efficiency, reducing costs and enhancing patient safety through improved individual surgical instrument management“said Rubi Halberthal, CEO & President, Haldor Advanced Technologies Ltd.
