    Cook Medical receives Indiana Governors Half Century Business Award
    Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb at the Indiana Statehouse in Indianapolis honored Cook Medical (Bloomington, IN) as a 2017 recipient of the Governor’s Half Century Business Award. This award is in recognition of the fact that for more than 50 years, Cook has been working to make Indiana a better place for employees and for the communities it calls home. “As Cook has grown over the years, so has our impact on the state of Indiana,” said Pete Yonkman, president of Cook Medical and Cook Group. “But our impact goes well beyond jobs. Our renovation of historic buildings has helped revitalize entire communities, and our partnerships with universities across the state are helping pave the way for the next generation of Indiana leaders and innovators. These are just some of the ways Cook has shown our ongoing commitment to being a vital part of Indiana’s past, present, and future.”

    Integra LifeSciences announces commercial expansion of the Cadence Total Ankle System
    Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (Plainsboro, NJ) announced full commercial availability of its Cadence Total Ankle System, a new ankle prosthesis developed in partnership with four world-leading foot and ankle surgeons — Dr. Tim Daniels, University of Toronto; Dr. David Pedowitz, Rothman Institute (Philadelphia, PA); Dr. Selene Parekh, Duke University (Durham, NC); and Dr. Christopher Hyer, Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Center (Westerville, OH). Key implant features include:
    -- Side-specific, anatomical tibial components, designed to avoid fibular impingement.
    -- Side-specific, anatomical talar components, designed to minimize resected talar bone and to preserve vascularity in the ankle.
    -- Bearing insert components manufactured from a highly crosslinked ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (HXL UHMWPE) for improved wear characteristics, and patent pending-biased sagittal profile options to address patients with subluxed talar anatomy.
    The Cadence Total Ankle System was previously available in a limited market release. The Cadence system is now fully available in the United States, Canada, and select European countries. Integra plans to initiate several global post-market clinical studies with the Cadence system to further support product efficacy.

    Bioline launches new JetSeq DNA Quantification kits
    Bioline (Cincinnati, OH), a wholly owned subsidiary of Meridian Bioscience Inc (Cincinnati, OH), announced the further expansion of the JetSeq portfolio for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) sample preparation.

    Roche launches cobas HPV on the cobas 6800/8800 Systems for cervical cancer screening in markets accepting the CE mark
    Roche (Basel, Switzerland) announced the CE-IVD launch of cobas HPV for use on the cobas 6800/8800 Systems for cervical cancer screening. Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a known cause of cervical cancer and is used to identify women at risk. This HPV DNA assay adds to the growing CE-IVD menu on the cobas 6800/8800 Systems, and gives laboratories the ability to run HPV DNA testing simultaneously with other previously released cobas assays including: Chlamydia and Gonorrhea (CT/NG), HIV-1, HCV, HBV, CMV, plus three next-generation assays for donor screening: cobas MPX, cobas WNV, and cobas HEV. According to the company, the fully automated cobas 6800/8800 Systems provide the fastest turn-around time, highest throughput and the longest walk-away time compared to other automated molecular platforms, giving laboratories the flexibility to adapt to changing testing demands.
