Integra LifeSciences acquired of Minnesota Scientific Inc


Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation announced that it has acquired Minnesota Scientific, Inc. (d/b/a Omni-Tract Surgical). 

Omni-Tract Surgical, based in St. Paul, MN, is a global leader in the development and manufacture of table mounted retractors. Omni-Tract markets and sells these systems for use in vascular, bariatric, general, urologic, orthopedic, spine, pediatric, and laparoscopic surgery.

Robert Perrett, President of the Integra Medical Instrument Group said, We are excited about the opportunities for our newly expanded retractor business. We see the potential for considerable synergies from the combination of the product development, manufacturing and distribution businesses within the Integra Surgical business. We will now be able to offer more products through the Integra Surgical sales channel for our hospital customers to meet their changing needs in the operating room and sterile processing department.

Integra expects to maintain Omni-Tract's operations in Minnesota and will integrate Omni-Tract's product lines into its combined offering of JARIT(R), Padgett(TM), R&B Redmond(TM), and Luxtec(R) lines of surgical instruments and illumination systems sold by the Integra Surgical sales team.
