The maker of disposable medical connection systems reported July-September net income of $9 million, or 65 cents a share, compared with $6.3 million, or 42 cents a share, a year ago.

Revenue at the company, which makes custom I.V. systems, catheters and cardiac monitoring systems, rose 40 percent to $75.7 million.

Analysts on average expected earnings of 48 cents a share, before items, on revenue of $66.6 million, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

The company raised its fiscal 2010 earnings-per-share forecast to $2.00-$2.07 from its prior outlook of $1.85-$1.92.

For the full year, it expects revenue of $277-$282 million, up from its earlier forecast of $270-$275 million.
