Medical Device & IVD Experts
Specialists in Medical Devices & IVDs Since 2005
MedEnvoy Global is a sister company of Luctor Medical, a company that has specialized in helping medical device and IVD companies find and evaluate high quality European distributors since 2005.
Our team has vast experience in the medical device arena so we fully understand the intricacies of exporting to Europe and the regulatory responsibilities that come along with doing so.
Highly Organized and Process Oriented
Our goal is to fit seamlessly into the background of your distribution process. We don't take physical control of your products or interact with your customers. Our job is to ensure the smooth flow of your devices from your loading dock to your customers in Europe. To achieve that we have to be highly organized, holding ourselves to the same standards as the clients we serve. That's why MedEnvoy is currently implementing ISO 13485:2016, with certification expected in 2021.
