SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2015) - Ivera Medical Corporation has met the stringent requirements for a minority-owned business enterprise (MBE) for the fourth consecutive year. The Pacific Southwest Minority Supplier Development Council has renewed the certification for MBE status, as defined by the National Minority Supplier Development Council certification guidelines.

"Our MBE certification is important to us and is a continuing source of pride," said Bob Rogers, Ivera Medical CEO. "This certification helps Ivera open doors with healthcare providers and purchasing organizations who seek diversity and appreciate the competitive value a minority-owned business can bring to their supply contracting."

Ivera Medical is focused on the design, development, manufacture, marketing and sale of the Curos® line of products including passive disinfection port protectors that disinfect and then guard luer activated swabbable valves against contamination between venous accesses. The vibrant green cap assures high visibility compliance with hospital infection prevention protocols while its ingenious design minimizes packaging waste. Effective use requires only that caregivers peel off a foil seal and twist the cap onto any needleless connector. Inside the cap, 70% isopropyl alcohol (IPA) continually bathes the port for effective, consistent and reliable disinfection. For more information about Curos and Ivera Medical, visit the website at
