Guidant contractor gets subpoena about devicesNov 22, 2005 | St. Paul Pioneer Press
Accellent Inc., a contract manufacturer for heart-device makers including Guidant Corp., said it received a U.S. Justice Department subpoena for information related to a probe of Guidant defibrillators.
The subpoena is connected to an investigation by the U.S. Attorney's office in Minneapolis that last month prompted a separate subpoena to Guidant, Wilmington, Mass.-based Accellent subsidiary, Accellent Corp., said Monday in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Indianapolis-based Guidant said Oct. 25 it received a subpoena from the Minneapolis office seeking information on three defibrillators: Ventak Prizm 2, Contak Renewal 1 and Contak Renewal 2. The company's heart-device operations are in Arden Hills.
