Mindray Medical International Ltd was incorporated as an exempted company with limited liability in the Cayman Islands on June 10, 2005 under the Companies Law of the Cayman Islands. The Company is a developer, manufacturer and marketer of medical devices worldwide. The Company operates three primary business segments: patient monitoring and life support products, in-vitro diagnostic products, and medical imaging systems. The Company's patient monitoring devices track the physiological parameters of patients, such as heart rate, blood pressure, respiration and temperature. It currently offers patient monitoring devices that are suitable for adult, pediatric and neonatal patients and are used principally in hospital intensive care units, operating rooms and emergency rooms. Its product line offers customers functionality, such as single- and multiple-parameter monitors, mobile and portable multifunction monitors, central stations that can collect and display multiple patient data on a single screen, and an electro-cardiogram monitoring device. Its multi-parameter monitoring devices can be networked, allowing hospitals to remotely gather patient data from patient rooms and centralize that data in a single location. Its patient monitoring devices also have built-in recorders and have batteries for portability in models, as well as power backup in the event of power failure in mobile models. It also offers a line of veterinary monitoring devices. The Life support products offers anesthesia machines, defibrillators, surgical equipment (including surgical beds and surgical lights ceiling pendants), syringes and infusion pumps, as well as ventilators. The in-vitro diagnostic products provide data and analysis on blood, urine and other bodily fluid samples for clinical diagnosis and treatment. It offers a range of semi-automated and fully-automated in-vitro diagnostic products for laboratories, clinics and hospitals to perform analysis to detect and quantify various substances in the patient samples. Its current product portfolio consists of in-vitro diagnostic products in six product categories: hematology analysis products, biochemistry analysis products, immunoassay products, coagulation analysis products, urine sediment analysis products, and microbiology analysis products. The hematology analyzers test blood samples to detect abnormalities or foreign substances. The biochemistry analyzers measure the concentration or activity of substances such as enzymes, proteins and substrates. The immunoassay analyzers measure the concentration of protein such as hormone, tumor marker and virus protein. The coagulation analyzers are used to measure activated partial thromboplastin time (APPT), prothrombin time (PT), thrombin time (TT), fibrinogen (FIB), D-Dimer and clotting factor. Urinalysis includes urine sediment and dry chemistry analysis. Urinalysis, together with hematology and biochemistry analysis, are the three common methods used in in-vitro diagnostic market. The microbiology analyzers are used in clinical laboratories by using the microbial identification and antibiotic susceptibility testing (ID/AST) system to identify microbes and perform antibiotic susceptibility testing, while they use the blood culture system to recover pathological organisms. The medical imaging systems segment includes ultrasound systems, digital radiography systems and a magnetic resonance imaging system. The ultrasound systems use computer-managed sound waves to produce real time images of anatomical movement and blood flow. Ultrasound systems are commonly employed in medical fields such as urology, gynecology, obstetrics and cardiology. The Company currently offers black and white and color ultrasound systems, and transducers to enhance the adaptability of these products for a variety of applications. The other products segment mainly includes orthopedic products, endoscope devices and healthcare IT solutions products.
