Samsung Medison Co Ltd had a large booth at Medica 2011, a healthcare-related trade show that runs from Nov 16 to 19, 2011, in Dusseldorf, Germany.

The company was formed when Samsung Electronics Co Ltd took over Medison, a major ultrasonic diagnostic equipment maker, in February 2011. So, this is the first time that Samsung Medison has participated in the trade show.

Currently, Samsung Electronics is reinforcing its business through corporate acquisitions in the aim of capturing the medical device market. Also, it plans to develop medical devices with new concepts by combining existing medical devices with, for example, the company's IT technologies.

However, Samsung Electronics only exhibited its existing ultrasonic diagnostic equipment and did not show the results of the acquisition of Medison this time.
