The lawsuit claims that Bard has a dominant position in the tip location system market and will only sell the proprietary stylet necessary to operate its tip location systems preloaded in its PICCs, not separately which would allow any type of PICC to be used with the tip location systems” AngioDynamics (2017).

AngioDynamics report “Tip location systems are devices that can be used to aid healthcare professionals in the bed-side placement of a PICC. The lawsuit claims that Bard has a dominant position in the tip location system market and will only sell the proprietary stylet necessary to operate its tip location systems preloaded in its PICCs, not separately which would allow any type of PICC to be used with the tip location systems. By doing so, customers who want to buy Bard’s tip location systems must also buy Bard’s line of PICCs, preventing hospitals and other medical providers from purchasing AngioDynamics’ superior BioFlo PICCs.”
