Eklin Acquires Ultrasource

Ultrasource Inc., a U.S. veterinary distributor, has been acquired by Eklin Medicine Systems.

Eklin Medical Systems of Santa Clara, Calif., has acquired Ultrasource Inc., the U.S. veterinary distributor for Philips Medical Systems’ ultrasound product line. Ultrasource also offers Sonoscape and SIUI ultrasound systems for small animal, equine, exotic and zoo animals.

“As ultrasound imaging has grown in popularity throughout veterinary care, we have experienced increasing demand for an Eklin ultrasound solution,” said Gary Cantu, president and chief executive officer of Eklin. 

“We wanted an ultrasound partner that shared our open workflow standards philosophy in order to provide our clients with ultrasound solutions that best fit their practice. Ultrasource and the Philips product line both embrace the same open DICOM standard protocols while providing outstanding customer service.”
