Baylis Medical and Japan Lifeline Partner to Introduce Advanced Electrophysiology Solutions into Europe

November 18, 2020

TORONTO, NOVEMBER 18 2020 – Baylis Medical is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Japan Lifeline (JLL), a leading Japanese cardiovascular device developer and manufacturer, to introduce advanced solutions for electrophysiology procedures in Europe.

The European launch of the partnership consists of a family of diagnostic catheters, including a 2F microcatheter and 6F guiding catheter, which can be combined to allow deeper coronary sinus mapping. As the smallest diagnostic catheter on the market, the 2F catheter also allows mapping and pacing in smaller anatomy such as the Vein of Marshall.

The following comments were made by Keisuke Suzuki, President and CEO of Japan Lifeline Co., Ltd: “We are pleased to continue to deliver diagnostic catheters developed using our unique technology to the North American market through Baylis medical and to the medical market in Europe. We will continue to cooperate with each other to provide excellent medical equipment. We will deliver that medical equipment to the medical markets around the world."

The companies have a longstanding record of introducing innovative cardiology solutions to global markets. In Japan, JLL is the exclusive distributor of Baylis Medical devices. In North America, the companies have worked collectively to introduce the EPstar Fixed Electrophysiology Catheters, which include the 2F microcatheter and 6F guiding catheter.

“Baylis Medical and JLL align with one, harmonious focus: to identify and fill gaps in the cardiology device space, so that patients can receive the treatment they need,” said Kris Shah, President of Baylis Medical. “We are proud to build on our long and successful partnership with JLL by bringing this much-needed technology to the European electrophysiology market.”

The 2F and 6F catheters will be manufactured in Japan and commercialized in Europe through Baylis Medical.
