The Story Behind Alaris Medical Systems

A Legacy of Innovation in Medical Technology

Alaris Medical Systems, the original manufacturer of the MedSystem III Infusion Pump 2865B, has a rich history of innovation in the medical device industry. Founded in 1996 through the merger of IMED Corporation and IVAC Medical Systems, Alaris quickly became a leader in intravenous (IV) medication delivery and patient safety solutions.

From Garage Startup to Global Leader

The roots of Alaris can be traced back to the entrepreneurial spirit of San Diego's biotech scene. IMED, one of its predecessor companies, was famously started in a garage by Richard Cramer in 1972, after he was ousted from IVAC in a proxy fight. This competitive drive led to rapid innovations in infusion pump technology, benefiting patients worldwide.

A Series of Strategic Acquisitions

In 2004, Cardinal Health acquired Alaris Medical Systems for $2 billion, recognizing the value of its advanced infusion technologies. This acquisition brought together Alaris's innovative pumps with Pyxis medication dispensing systems, creating a comprehensive medication management solution for hospitals.

The Birth of CareFusion

In 2009, Cardinal Health spun off its clinical and medical products businesses, including the former Alaris products, to form CareFusion. This new company continued to innovate in the field of medication safety and delivery.

Joining Forces with BD

The story doesn't end there. In 2015, Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD) acquired CareFusion for $12.2 billion. This merger combined BD's expertise in medication and procedural solutions with CareFusion's strengths in medication management and patient safety, creating a global leader in medical technology.

A Commitment to Patient Safety

Throughout these transitions, the core mission remained constant: to improve patient outcomes and enhance healthcare worker safety. The Alaris MedSystem III Infusion Pump 2865B, now part of the BD family, continues to be a testament to this commitment, providing accurate and reliable medication delivery in healthcare settings around the world.
