MANUFACTURING & SOURCING: This week, the DeviceTalks Weekly Podcast explores the potential of single-use endoscopes. Co-host Tom Salemi interviews leaders from the leaders – Ambu and Boston Scientific. First, Ambu CEO Juan Jose Gonzalez and Stephen Block, president of Ambu US, introduce us to one of medtech’s fastest growing companies. Ambu is moving into the single-use market with a less expensive alternative to those offered by larger rival Boston Scientific. We’ll find how Gonzalez and Block view the opportunity. In our second interview, we dig into the EXALT offering with Boston Scientific’s CMO Brian Dunkin, MD and Dave Pierce, EVP and President MedSurg. After a slow start due to COVID-19 shutdowns, Boston Scientific is putting the pedal to the metal by leveraging its extensive reach and might. Executives from both companies share why they can’t see the ceiling to the potential of this technology.
MassDevice’s Executive Editor Chris Newmarker will reveal this week’s #NewmarkersNewsmakers including Bardy Diagnostics, Kevin Hykes, COVID-19 Vaccine makers, Theranica, Joe Biden, Donald Trump and Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes.
