OEM Medical Equipment
OEM medical equipment is a common term in the healthcare industry, and you have likely heard it used by managers, technicians, and specialists. However, do you know what OEM medical equipment actually is? Today, we are going to explain what it is and how own-brand labeling works.
What is OEM Medical Equipment?
OEM stands for “Original Equipment Manufacturer.” Essentially, OEMs are the companies that design, engineer, and manufacture complete medical products, systems, subassemblies, and parts.
For example, this medical equipment could be everything from medical instruments like tongue depressors to advanced imaging systems. For sub-assemblies and parts, OEMs can sell them to other companies for use, resale, or replacement.
Due to the stringent policies placed on the healthcare industry, OEM’s can offer a wide range of medical equipment services, like verification, in addition to their manufacturing capabilities.
How does Own-Brand Labeling Work?
OEM medical equipment can be created not only for the company itself but for other companies as well. Say, for instance, that Company A (an OEM) is able to produce a specific part for a medical device. Company B is not able to make that part, but they need it for a medical device that they will then sell to a hospital. Therefore, Company A sells the part to Company B, which then adds that part to their device and sells it. If Company B sells the OEM medical supplies under their name, trademark, or brand, it is known as Own-Brand Labeling (OBL).
