German-based surgical instruments and sterilisation container systems maker Aesculap has acquired the assets of Aragon Surgical.
Aragon Surgical specialises in radiofrequency electrosurgical instruments for tissue fusion and cutting.
The acquisition involves the inclusion of the Caiman product line into the Aesculap family of surgical instruments.
Aesculap president Chuck DiNardo said Caiman's unique articulating jaw design and proprietary Lektrafuse technology provide improved clinical benefits.
''This acquisition will widen the scope of our surgical instrument portfolio and enhance Aesculap's line of products to improve patient care," DiNardo added.
