This firm was established in 1991 and specializes in production of special medical equipment. ELLA-CS is a purely domestic company without any foreign ownership. At present it has 100 employees. The company came into existence as a logical continuation of production activity dating from 1986 under the auspices of the Medical Faculty of Charles University, Institute of Experimental Oncology in Hradec Králové. Export activities began with special thermocouple probes for radiothermotherapy that were developed in the above mentioned institute.
The company extended its range of products to include production of implantable stents, extractors and other special devices. Our core business is the development of original products in close cooperation with eminent clinical centres. Currently, the company has a portfolio of 3 globally unique products – biodegradable BD Stent, Danis Stent to stop bleeding from esophageal varices and extractors for easy and safe removal of implanted stents in the esophagus.
