Are you buying PRP kits (medical devices) from an Unlicensed Dealer?

By unlicensed we don’t mean someone operating without a distribution agreement with a manufacturer, we mean someone breaking state laws by selling medical devices as an unlicensed “wholesaler”.

Companies, like us that sell or “distribute” medical devices to end users who dispense (pharmacies, physicians, etc.) are called wholesalers and must hold WDD (Wholesale Distributors of Drugs or Devices) licenses in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania among many other states.

Just because you recognize the manufacturer brand name, like EmCyte, doesn’t mean you’re purchasing from someone legally selling it to you. Exactly like there are unlicensed pharmacies selling brand name pharmaceuticals, there are unlicensed wholesalers selling brand name medical devices. Luckily states make verification public and easily accessible. New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania’s links are below.
