"This year Delrus is celebrating its twentieth anniversary as company and its ongoing commitment to bring the most modern and advanced technologies to the Russian healthcare system. Our motto is "progress in the name of life," which reflects the very promising potential we see in a collaboration with MagForce," said July Magadeev, President of Delrus.
