Particle Measuring Systems (PMS) recently announced a distribution agreement with BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX), giving the medical technology company non-exclusive rights to distribute Particle Measuring Systems’ MiniCapt® Mobiles and BioCapt® Stainless Steel Impactors globally.

Under this agreement, BD will sell the instruments together with BD prepared plated media through their distribution network and PMS will provide service and calibration.

“This agreement marks a milestone in our strategy to increase our footprint in the microbiology market and is a continuation in our strategy to partner with high-quality companies who complement our product line,” said Giovanni Scialo, vice president Life Sciences for Particle Measuring Systems.

He continued, “BD is a good fit as a partner, not only because of synergistic product lines but also because of mutually shared values of providing our customers with high-quality solutions.”

This agreement provides customers with a complete portfolio of active air monitoring systems and high-quality prepared plated media to meet their environmental monitoring needs and regulatory requirements.

“Being able to offer a high-quality viable air sampler helps us fill a gap in our product portfolio to meet increasing global needs,” said Derek Lancashire, business line leader, media and core microbiology, at BD. “With regulations constantly changing around pharmaceutical manufacturing, we are well-positioned to help provide precision active air monitoring, sample integrity and data security.”

In recent years, PMS has strategically partnered with other companies to continue to offer customers quality products. Another distribution partner is Novatek International, which provides data management through a combined PharmaIntegrity™ software to its aseptic manufacturing customers.
