03.24.2011

Medium-High-End Exhibits and Authoritative Academic Events


Beijing, March 25, 2011 - The 23rd International Medical Instruments and Equipment Exhibition (hereafter referred to as China Med 2011) grandly opens at China National Convention Center as the first of its nature held in China in 2011 to attract a host of domestic and overseas medical equipment manufacturers as well as numerous medical institutes, scholars and experts. 


China Med is jointly organized by the Health Department of General Logistics Department, Chinese People's Liberation Army , China World Trade Center Co., Ltd., Huitong Xingye Internationl Exhibition (Beijing) Co. Ltd. and Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. It is the first international medical instruments and equipment exhibition in China, that is certified by UFI (union               of International Fairs). China Med 2011 covers a total exhibition area of 30,000 sqm with 512 exhibitors from more than 20 countries and regions. Some 26,000 trade visitors are expected to attend China Med 2011, including VIP guests of the presidents and equipment section directors from both military and civilian hospitals with purchasing plans, as well as the distributors and agents planning to purchase equipment worth RMB 5 million or more.  


Pioneering Divisions of Overseas Brands, New Cutting-edge Products
In line with the principle of high-end products and academic authority, China Med 2011 spares no effort in establishing a high-end business information platform for the medical instruments and equipment industry. Major players in the industry, including GE, Phillips, Siemens, Toshiba, Varian, Elekta, Carestream, Wandong, Biochem, Roche, Shinva, Johnson & Johnson, Aloka, Mindray, Lepu, Neusoft, Weigao, Yuyue, Glocal Resource, Aeonmed and Top Grade Healthcare, all showcase their new cutting-edge products. The Germany and Japan pavilions also display in the fair with their new products.   


Siemens presents its brand new Biograph mMR system 2, the world’s first integrated whole-body molecular MR system with simultaneous data acquisition technology, currently undergoing clinical use testing. This revolutionary system comprises a magnetic resonance (MR) scanner and an integrated PET (Positron Emission Tomography) detection system with an architecture that performs as one. In the new 3-tesla hybrid system, Siemens developers have succeeded for the first time in simultaneously capturing MR and PET data with a whole-body system.


TrueBeam, brought by Varian, is a new linear accelerator first introduced in 2010 and sold in China in 2011. The core components of TrueBeam, including the accelerating tube, beam bending system, treatment head, image guiding system, patient support system and master control system, are all redesigned from the ground up. These redesigned components are able to meet the demands of the latest radiotherapy while providing an ideal platform for the development and realization of the new radiotherapy concept.


Elekta highlights its radiotherapy dedicated image guiding equipment—Clarity™ . Previously as the third party product, Clarity™ can fully integrate with the accelerator and the CT machine to realize the image guiding function, soft tissue image in particular. While imaging the skull, mammary glands, prostate and the cervix, radio hazard on the patients is completely avoided. Thanks to its powerful compatibility, apart from CT simulation, Clarity™ can also realize imaging and guide the radio treatment in the accelerator treatment room.    


As China’s first high-end full automatic blood cell analyzer with 5 categories, BC-6800, the full automatic blood cell analyzer from Mindray adopts the SF-Cube multi dimensional analyzing technology to accurately detect the white cells, the reticulocytes as well as the NRBS. The highest detecting speed reaches to 125 samples per hour, resulting in dramatically increased clinical laboratory work efficiency.   


Toshiba showcases its new 640-slice CT scanner “Aquilion ONE” for the diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases, which enjoys faster scanning, reduction of both contrast medium dose and radiation exposure dose and higher-resolution images. 


The da Vinci Surgical System developed by Intuitive Surgical and NASA of USA can be found on the booth of Chindex, being its debut at China Med. As a robotic surgeon of the third generation using the world’s most advanced technology available today, it has the most dexterous wrist that is even greater than the human wrist. Other products making their debut at the exhibition are high-definition Discovery MR750 3.0T from GE, the LED mycobacterium rapid detecting system from Biochem, the medical electronic linear accelerator from Shinva and the Hybrid OR from Maquet.   


At China Med 2011, three new sections for the display of brands from North America, Europe and Asia are added to the six traditional divisions of Medical Imaging, IVD, Medical Information, Medical Consumables, Orthopedics and Hospital Buildings, echoing the Germany and Japan pavilions. The exhibiting high-end products demonstrate the results of perfect combination between forefront theories and technological advances.
  
High-level Academic Conferences Leading Medical Advances
Concurrently held with China Med 2011 are more than 20 events covering four categories of medical imaging, medical and healthcare, clinical technology and bidding purchase. The conferences, exclusively supported by all academic committees of PLA and the Chinese Medical Association, are to be attended by more than 300 well-known experts from both China and overseas and 5,800 professionals. The Hospital President Summit, held for the first time, features discussions on hospitals’ economic efficiency by the invited experts and officials from the government purchasing section of the Chinese Ministry of Finance and equipment purchasing through public bidding. In line with the general guiding principle of “strategy forward, focus downward” of China’s medical and healthcare services, the organizers of China Med 2011, in cooperation with the Chinese Society of Biomedical Engineering, host the Seminar on the Health Information Network for Individuals, Families and Communities by inviting experts and professionals from Aeromedicine Institute of PLA, the General Hospital of PLA, the Fourth Military Medical University and the remote information centers in Shanghai, Shenyang and Wuxi for discussions and exchange of views. China Med has become an arena where representatives from international companies and medical scholars meet to explore the state-of-the-art technology and up-to-date medical developments.

China to Rank the Third Globally in the Medical Device Industry
According to Frost & Sullivan, China’s medical device market is expected to be doubled to reach US $53.7 billion by 2015. Between 2009 and 2011 the government plans to spend US $124 billion on healthcare reform. The year 2011, as the starting year of the “12th Five-Year Plan”, will see a full coverage of the basic medical insurance system nationwide, making it a milestone in the history of China’s healthcare reform. Statistics indicate that by 2011 China will rank the third globally in the medical device industry. 


As an international exhibition held in China, China Med keeps a close eye on the world market for medical devices. Its overseas supporter, Messe Düsseldorf GmbH, is the organizer of MEDICA, the world’s largest medical exhibition. Through China Med 2011, MEDICA brings the latest international medical industry information to the domestic exhibitors. China Med is dedicated to building it into unique quality exhibition for China’s medical equipment industry, making it a showcase window to the world’s medical industry and the first stop for international medical institutions to enter the Chinese market.
