BERLIN, April 14--(HSMN NewsFeed)--BIOTRONIK SE & Co. KG today announced the European launch after receiving CE Mark approval for its new Reocor external pacemakers, available in two models for dual and single chamber pacing therapy.

Quality based on 25 years of experience

BIOTRONIK continues to enrich its high quality product portfolio with the launch of the new external pacemakers. Reocor offers complete reliability in emergencies and temporary patient care, setting a new quality standard for external pacing therapy.
