TriMedika secures four export contracts at Dusseldorf trade fair Medica
TriMedika has secured four new orders of its innovative non-contact thermometer at Medica 2018, the world’s leading trade fair for the medical industry. The deals in Switzerland, Germany and Austria are the latest for this growing Belfast-based medical devices business.
Co-founders Julie Brien COO and Dr Roisin Molloy CEO have been working closely with Invest Northern Ireland to develop and establish the customer base for TRITEMP™, TriMedika’s high-tech thermometer which can read temperatures without ever touching the body. The product is designed to save hospitals money, optimise infection control and enable busy nurses to spend more time with patients.

As well as securing four new orders we gained additional contacts with distributors for over 35 countries including Europe and the Middle East which we intend to develop at Arab Health in January 2019.
“Global presence and brand awareness is a strategic focus for TriMedika as we scale the business and build the team. The ongoing support and advice from Invest NI has been central in enabling us to penetrate hospital markets and secure sales.”
