Mallinckrodt has expanded its agreement with group purchasing organization Premier, adding new products and extending their existing contract by two years. New Mallinckrodt technologies and products added to the partnership include Nellcor pulse oximeters and sensors, Liebel-Flarsheim power injector disposables, and the Optison ultrasound contrast agent (developed by San Diego-based Molecular Biosystems).

The earlier agreement between Premier and Mallinckrodt covered other Mallinckrodt contrast imaging agents, radiopharmaceuticals and related products, endotracheal tubes, tracheostomy tubes, and temperature monitoring systems. All of those items will remain under the new expanded agreement, which will conclude at the end of 2006, according to St. Louis-based Mallinckrodt.
