CareFusion Acquires Surgical Site Solutions, Inc. to Expand Surgical Clipper Offering


CareFusion Corporation announces that it has acquired Surgical Site Solutions, Inc. to expand its surgical clipper portfolio with the ClipVac™ pre-surgical hair removal system.

The ClipVac system is designed to improve the current hair removal practice by vacuum capturing hair clippings at the source. As an attachment to CareFusion Surgical Clippers, the ClipVac system saves time by capturing 98.5 percent of hair and airborne contaminants at the source, reducing the need for a secondary process of clean up. Test data supports vacuum technology as a safe, highly effective and efficient alternative when hair removal is carried out in the surgical or ancillary setting.

“We have had a close relationship with Surgical Site Solutions during an exclusive and successful collaboration with the ClipVac system and our surgical clippers,” says Jan Creidenberg, vice president and general manager of infection prevention for CareFusion. “Bringing this proprietary technology into the CareFusion surgical clipper portfolio fits our strategy to help customers improve efficiency and patient safety in the clinical setting. We were also pleased with the market acceptance of the ClipVac  technology along with CareFusion Clippers during our initial collaboration.”

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
