SPS' strong leadership in defining and establishing sterility assurance standards in healthcare settings is a strong platform upon which Crosstex can expand its global presence as a leader in the healthcare infection prevention and control market."
"The addition of SPS to the Crosstex family expands our presence in the acute-care and alternate-care markets, broadens our product portfolio and strengthens our position in the dental market," said Andrew Whitehead, senior vice president of business development.
