BD announced it has completed the acquisition of Israeli-based Caesarea Medical Electronics (CME), a global infusion pump systems manufacturer. In March 2014, CareFusion Corp., which was acquired by BD in 2015, had acquired a non-controlling, minority stake in CME.
The acquisition of CME expands BD’s infusion portfolio to include ambulatory, home and specialty acute care infusion pumps. CME designs, manufactures and markets a range of infusion and syringe pumps as well as related accessories and disposable administration sets for both homecare and hospital settings. CME infusion pumps are known for their compact and highly portable design, making them ideal for specialty applications such as IV and epidural anesthesia and pain management, hospital and home nutrition, among others.
