In December 2007 the company released the M5, a portable diagnostic ultrasound system for international markets. The M5 will target traditional markets such as radiology and OB/GYN as well as Point-of-Care-Testing centers such as emergency and operating rooms, intensive care units and general practice offices.
In 2007 the company released seven products including the Beneview T5 patient monitoring device, PM-60 pulse oximeter, BS-400 biochemistry analyzer, MR-96A enzyme-linked analyzer, MW-12A microplate washer, BS-120 biochemistry analyzer and the M5 portable diagnostic ultrasound system.
