BSIC is located at the center of ZhangJiang High Tech Park, which is the hub of Medtech industry in China. “Leveraging the policy and talent resources in ZJ High Tech Park, BSIC will plays a key role in Bluesail’s global R&D system,” said Wenjing Liu, Chairman of Bluesail Medical. “BSIC will cooperate with R&D teams in Singapore and Germany to develop future products for coronary and structural heart segments, as well as starting the development of peripheral and neurovascular products from scratch.”
In the near future, Bluesail will have four product lines in the innovation center: Coronary intervention products, Structural heart products, Peripheral vascular products, and Neurovascular products.
With the concept of mutual building and sharing, Blue Sail built the platform for both health protection and health care via industry investment and venture capital. Blue Sail is committed to developing a world-class leading enterprise in the comprehensive medical industry as a famous brand trusted by the public.
