Case 12-04 Hemo-Tech Inc. Part I Hemo-Tech Inc. (“Hemo”) manufactures and sells specialized medical equipment and services to physicians and hospitals. The equipment is used to extract and store blood samples from patients. Hemo is currently marketing its latest equipment model, BIO-07, which includes Hemo’s new patented technology that significantly improves sample collection efficiency and reduces contamination risk to a low level.
