Critical Industry Data Available on CD-ROM

Susan Wallace

For more than 20 years, the Medical Device Register (MDR) has been recognized throughout the industry as the leading directory guide to medical manufacturers and their products. The full directory is also offered as an interactive Windows-based CD-ROM—the Win MDR—whose summer 2002 release is now available.

The new release of the WinMDR brings the ease of use and functionality of a searchable CD-ROM format to a comprehensive manufacturer database. Manufacturer profiles include such information as company name, address, telephone and fax numbers; e-mail and Web site addresses; annual revenue and medical sales volume; method of distribution; registered trade names; quality system and CE mark compliance; U.S. federal procurement eligibility; type of ownership or parent company; number of employees; names of key executives; and a complete list of products, presented with their FDA codes and grouped by medical specialty area.

For the summer 2002 release, several new features have been added to the WinMDR's powerful search and retrieval capabilities. Subscribers can now search the database using fields such as company name, city, state, postal code, country, or phone number. Manufacturers can also be selected according to their revenue range, distribution method, or quality system adherence, while products can be located by product name, keyword, medical specialty, or trade name. A special function enables the creation of personnel mailing lists and labels.

Produced by MPMN's publisher, Canon Communications llc, the summer 2002 WinMDR can be purchased with a one-year license—which includes a six-month upgrade at no additional cost—for $369.00. A special package offer of the two-volume print edition of the 2002 Medical Device Register together with the summer 2002 WinMDR costs $469.00. Further information and ordering instructions can be obtained on-line at or by calling 310/ 445-3746.
