NEW YORK, July 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daxor Corporation (NYSE MKT: DXR), an investment company with innovative medical instrumentation and biotechnology operations focused on blood volume measurement, has signed a new distribution agreement with American Medical Depot “AMD,” one of the nation’s largest and diversified government healthcare distributors. As part of the agreement, the two parties are set to provide Daxor’s BVA-100 diagnostic blood test (Blood Volume Analysis) “BVA,” to government facilities across the United States, driving forward the use of BVA to help guide precise, individualized volume management in a wide variety of medical conditions including heart failure and COVID-19 related symptoms.

“We believe we have found a perfect partner as both companies' focus is innovation and the commitment to understand and deliver solutions to our customers,” said Michael Feldschuh, CEO and President of Daxor. “Partnering with one of the nation’s largest diversified medical equipment distribution companies will enable our BVA technology to reach more healthcare providers and improve the quality of life for patients.”

Current developments in the healthcare system have remained at a slower pace with regard to reliable and efficient medical equipment. The COVID-19 crisis has tested and exposed a lack of state-of-the-art technology and resources within ICUs, which Daxor is determined to play a key role in with the BVA-100 test.

“As a dedicated leader in BVA, we are excited to join forces with AMD to provide a much needed and valuable test to those who have served and continue to serve our country,” said Jean Oertel, Daxor’s Vice President of Commercialization and Customer Experience. “Together as leaders, combining our sales and marketing efforts will help accelerate awareness, adoption and integration of our BVA technology into standard of care.”

Jean Oertel joined Daxor in April of 2020, having more than 25 years of sales and marketing leadership positions in multiple divisions of Medtronic and other industry leading companies such as Johnson and Johnson, Boston Scientific and Zoll Medical where she built a track record of high-performance teams, and excellent customer service. Jean holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from University of Cincinnati. She completed her executive level education in Management, Strategic Leadership and Digital Analytics at Rollins College Crummer Graduate School of Business, University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School of Business, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

“Jean’s expertise and enthusiasm have transformed our commercialization team,” said Kathryn Kornafel, Vice President of Marketing and Commercial Development. “Her creativity and strong business acumen are driving sales and marketing execution through innovative growth initiatives. We look forward to Jean’s robust contributions as we expand.”
