In July 2011 Bracco acquired Swiss Medical Care to strengthen and complete the portfolio of automated systems for the administration of contrast media with technological advancements such as CT Exprès.
It was the consequence of a journey started in 2001 with the acquisition of Acist Medical Systems and continued with another milestone in 2008 made by the acquisition of E-Z-EM® Canada Inc.
Effective December 17, 2012, SMC has changed its name to Bracco Injeneering S.A., the new Business Unit of Bracco Imaging.
The name BRACCO INJENEERING denotes a company committed to developing the best-in-class integrated injection solutions with a strong background in research and innovation. It provides quality solutions for state-of-the-art radiology centers, offering proven injection technology, built on Bracco Imaging expertise.
Thanks to this strengthened product portfolio including CT Exprès, EmpowerCTA®, EmpowerMR® and Nexo, Bracco Imaging will be able to focus on constant innovation not only for devices but also for software development and data management.
