Coin-sized cardiac pacemakers, domestic hydrogen machines, baby-specific magnetic resonance... These products, which are not yet on the market or just developed, will be unveiled at the China International Import Expo.
On August 23, before all these medical devices were unveiled in Shanghai, the National Convention and Exhibition Center held a meeting of supply and demand before the exhibition of exhibitors in the medical device and medical care exhibition area.At this matchmaking meeting, nearly 120 exhibitors from home and abroad gathered together to get what they needed.
The reporter learned from relevant regulatory authorities that China has a series of regulations on products such as medical devices that have not yet been listed.However, in order to ensure the smooth convening of the import fair, the Chinese government provides strong support under the premise of safety and control, such as the “high-precision” exhibits exhibited at the exhibition. After the end, it can stay for 180 days before returning to the bonded area.
Baby MRI System,the First Exhibition in Asia
At the entrance to the docking station, a hydrogen machine from Amami Medical Technology quickly attracted the attention of the participants.
Xu Honghui, deputy general manager of the company's overseas business department, told the Pengpai journalist that most of the ventilators currently in China need to convert hydrogen into liquid.The hydrogen machine, directly separated, not only simplifies the intermediate link, but also directly enters the family in the future. In addition to breathing, it can also treat acute inflammation and rhinitis caused by environmental factors.
"We will bring the world's first baby MRI system to the import fair, which will greatly reduce the risk of neonatal MRI.”Zhuang Xinyao, senior deputy director of the US Medical Products R&D Department, announced the news to reporters at the matchmaking meeting.He said that the previous NMR for children was an adult MRI system. For children, the risk is high and the picture is not clear. This time they brought a 1.5t baby-only MRI system, which is the first initiative in the world,greatly improved the safety and accuracy of NMR for children.At present, the system has completed the first phase of research and development, and the exhibition will be the first exhibition in Asia.
Roche Diagnostics (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. will bring the world's first fully automatic mechanical tissue cutting system. The company's corporate communications manager Lu Xiuli introduced, for example, tumor sectioning, most of which are currently cut first, and then sent to professional instrument testing.This cutting system automatically completes tumor sectioning and testing in a full vacuum environment, greatly reducing the risk of infection and improving the detection accuracy.
As a US-funded enterprise, Medtronic's import fair will bring all kinds of medical equipment such as minimally invasive surgery consumables, operating room ICU equipment, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, medical care and medical rehabilitation.
“Appearance, the traditional pacemaker is about the size of a tea bag and needs to be implanted in the upper chest. The wire-free pacemaker is like a vitamin capsule with a length of 25.9 mm, a volume of 1.0 cubic centimeter and a weight of only 2 grams. In fact, it is 90% smaller than traditional pacemakers.”At the docking session, Medtronic’s Communications Director of Greater China, Zhou Zuyi, told reporters that they would bring a wire-free pacemaker with the size of only one coin, the world’s smallest pacemaker, with no wires in the pacemaker. The subcutaneous incision reduces the risk of capsular infection and does not affect the activity of the upper limb of the patient. Currently, the pacemaker has been on the market for 2 years, and is still in the pre-market clinical research stage in China.
Exhibits can stay for 180 days before returning to the bonded area
Shanghai Waigaoqiao Group Co., Ltd. is the organizer of the matchmaking meeting of the day.
Zhang Hao, the deputy general manager of the company, said in an interview with the reporter that there are more than 130 bonded zones in the country, namely the special customs supervision zone. The Waigaoqiao Free Trade Zone has annual sales of more than 1.5 trillion yuan, accounting for half of the country's total sales.
Zhang Hao said that Waigaoqiao also has a medical device platform that can provide a professional service. Enterprises must register, property support, display and sell, including the bonded area to participate in the exhibition. This platform can provide customs guarantee,guarantee the storage and transportation can be solved together. Basically, the platform provides logistics, trade, and transportation in all aspects, including all other aspects.
Not only enterprises, but also various regulatory authorities provide policy guarantees for the exhibition. For example, the import fair has some original foreign companies with companies in it, and new products are displayed in the bonded area. The company will also take the products in the exhibition this time.If these products are to be shipped out of the bonded area, the customs will give them a policy of bonded display, that is to say, after the display, the exhibits can be returned for 180 days outside the bonded area and then shipped back. This is very convenient for enterprises.
Zhou Qun, deputy director of the Shanghai Food and Drug Administration and chief engineer, detailed the relevant policies of the national and Shanghai levels at the matchmaking meeting.
For example, imported chemical raw materials and preparations (excluding chemicals that were first sold in China) are not subject to mandatory inspections at the time of import.The drug supervision and administration department at the port of the port no longer issues the "Notice of Inspection of Imported Drug Ports" when handling the registration of imported chemicals, and the Port Drug Inspection Institute no longer conducts port inspections on imported chemicals.During the import expo, the Shanghai Food and Drug Administration will also launch a special presentation to improve the service while supervising.
Pengpai News journalist also learned at the matchmaking meeting that Germany's Atmont Group, Fujifilm, Dräger, Upstream, Siemens Medical, and Japan Forever Medical Group signed a contract to register for the 2019 China International Import Expo.
