Established in 1992, GE Healthcare’s Cork facility fills, packs, and distributes contrast media used in medical scans to aid the diagnosis of disease to more than 80 markets internationally. Contrast media is commonly used during MRI scans and may be ingested by or injected into a patient in order to improve the visibility of the body’s internal structure.

Today’s announcement builds on the development of a $10 million production suite at the Carrigtwohill facility in 2012 which saw the site’s manufacturing capacity increase by over fifty percent at that time.
