Allergan to acquire Keller Medical

Allergan Sales — a subsidiary of drugmaker Allergan — will acquire the privately-owned devicemaker Keller Medical for an undisclosed amount.

Keller Medical manufactures the Keller Funnel — a cone-shaped, lubricated plastic funnel used during breast augmentation or reconstruction procedures, according to a news release.

Surgeons use the funnel to guide silicone gel implants into the surgical pocket. The device allows surgeons to use a "no-touch" technique, which may reduce the amount of bacteria exposed to the implant.
