INDIANAPOLIS - Global manufacturer and distributor of high-quality airway and respiratory products, Pulmodyne, Inc., and fluidics-based MedTech company, fluidIQ, Inc., announced today a global licensing and joint research and development agreement. Pulmodyne, an Intersurgical company, will license fluidIQ's technology.
