Industry leader highlights its longevity and thanks employees for their loyalty and effort

FRISCO, Texas, Feb. 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Argon Medical Devices, Inc., a leading manufacturer of medical devices for interventional procedures, announces its 50th anniversary. This impressive milestone speaks to the dedication of the company's employees who take pride in the impact their contributions make on patients around the globe. Headquartered in Frisco, Texas, Argon offers a broad line of best-in-class products for Interventional Radiology, Interventional Oncology and Vascular Surgery procedures. Thanks to outstanding service, reliability, and quality, Argon maintains loyal strategic partnerships with physicians, clinicians, medical device distributors and strategic OEMs.

Argon was founded in 1972 producing procedural guidewires, gradually expanding to introduce disposable packs, special procedure kits and trays for Cardiology and Critical Care procedures.

"We have been dedicated in our mission to improve the lives of patients and caregivers for 50 years."

In 2009, Argon's strategic direction shifted to focus on products for Interventional Radiology. This led to further expansion of the product portfolio through acquisitions of companies and products in the interventional vascular, interventional oncology areas, including clot management, biopsy and drainage segments. More recently, the company bolstered its research and development capabilities, leading to introduction of organically developed products including the Scorpion® Portal Vein Access Series, Halo™ single-loop snares, BioPince® Ultra Full Core Biopsy Instrument, and Single- and Triple-Loop vena cava filter retrieval kits.
