In the Medical Care Division we offer blood glucose monitoring devices such as the single-strip Contour™ system and the multi-strip Breeze™ system. We also market the Contour™ USB meter, which features integrated diabetes management software and direct plug-in to computers. Outside Europe, these products are generally sold to consumers through pharmacies, drugstores, mass merchants, hospitals or wholesalers. In Europe, they are sold mainly through pharmacies.
As well as being among the top companies in the market for blood glucose monitoring devices, we are the world’s leading supplier of contrast agent injection systems for diagnostic procedures in computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and molecular imaging. We also offer service products for these systems. Examples from our portfolio of contrast agents used in diagnostic imaging are Ultravist™, Magnevist™ and Gadovist™/ Gadavist™. Our products are marketed to cardiologists and radiologists in hospitals and out-patient clinical sites through a global direct sales organization, supplemented in some cases by local distributors.
