Meridian's blood-diagnostic system to be introduced in China

MedCaptain Medical Technology Co. Ltd. secured a license to introduce Meridian Bioscience Inc.'s blood-diagnostic system in China.

The LeadCare II system, which will begin distributing in January 2017, is meant to diagnose lead exposure in the bloodstream.

MedCaptain will educate Chinese physicians and consumers about the risks and management of lead poisoning. Meridian estimates that between 9% and 25% of the Chinese population is exposed to lead as a result of the battery manufacturing/recycling, e-waste, mining and smelting industries.
