Discovery Medical product targets MRSA "superbug"

Nov. 30, 2007
Touchless dispensing system includes an array of fluids such as soap, alcohol-based and FDA lotion-based sanitizers.

There have been so many recent news stories about the "Superbug" commonly referred to as MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus). This is very real and we are seeing this emerge from common places such as, schools, jails and fitness centers, just to name a few. Discovery Medical, Inc. has products that can help kill this nasty bug. With proper hand washing and hand hygiene, this can be prevented.

Discovery Medical's touchless dispensing system includes an array of fluids such as soap, alcohol based and FDA lotion based sanitizers for the dental, medical, sanitation, and occupational safety markets.

Discovery Medical, Inc. turned to the Boeing Company's equivalent in China to create the best touchless system in the market today. The result of that collaboration is a well-engineered device produced to ISO 9002 quality control standards in technologically advanced manufacturing plants. "For the end-user, the result of our work is an improved Hands-Free Hygiene System and increased employee convenience and compliance." The new Hands-Free Hygiene System eliminates direct contact between the user and the dispensing unit. This separation is the secret to simplicity, reliability, and the beginning to the elimination of cross-contamination.

The Discovery Medical ES-800 Hands-Free Hygiene System delivers a set dosage of liquid each time the infrared beam is broken by an adjacent hand movement. The quantity can be adjusted at the factory to dispense between 0.7 ml. and 2.00 ml of fluid, depending on the need of the client. The System has a newly patented "bag in a cradle" delivery system, which not only eliminates cross contamination issues, but also provides for low-cost, easy maintenance. The Hands-Free Hygiene System is powered by 4 C-cell batteries and delivers over 15,000 hand washes (cycles) before battery replacement is needed.

The attractive wall-mounted unit has an 800ml institutional sized capacity, designed for operatories, surgical areas, restrooms and commercial kitchens. Discovery Medical, Inc. also offers a smaller unit that has a 400ml capacity that is perfect for the medical and dental markets and is also quite effective in educational and extended care environments and is very well suited for home usage as well.
