Oral dispensers

EPS, Inc. has made available four sizes of new EPS Oral Dispensers. The dispensers are available in 1-, 3-, 5-, and 10-mL sizes in either clear or ultraviolet-inhibiting amber. The dispensers contain an innovative one-piece plunger construction that eliminates rubber grommets and silicone coating, and facilitates an easy sliding of the plunger through the barrel. The dispensers are completely latex-free and contain graduations in both milliliters and fractionated teaspoon measurements. They also feature a unique tip design that facilities easier oral and topical dispensing applications. The tip design prohibits acceptance of hypodermic needles, and the low-capacity tip reservoir reduces residual content and ensures maximum delivery of medication.


EPS Oral Dispensers can be capped with either Standard Tip Caps or our "Wagon Wheel" stand design. All EPS Oral Dispensers can be labeled with our EPS LiquiDose Butterfly and Mini LiquiDose labels, and with bar codes using our MILT 3.0 software.

Dome light

[black small square] Jeron Electronic Systems, Inc. announces the release of the Prism Dome Light, designed to reduce staff response times by displaying patient call status in an efficient and instantaneous manner. The coded lights are illuminated in facility corridors, allowing staff to respond without delay. Over 40 combinations of software-controlled color and light patterns can be programmed to represent call priority, room, and bed location. During the most hectic of times, a caregiver need only look down the corridor to effectively prioritize patients. Additionally, as new calls are placed, the highly visible light patterns and colors automatically transform to reflect the current call priority.


Installation of the system is uncomplicated. The graphic software is easily installed and the Prism Dome Lights connect via plug-in jacks, eliminating the need for an extra power cable. The straightforward color-coding allows staff to adopt the system seamlessly and begin increasing productivity immediately.

Blood glucose meter

[black small square] Nova Biomedical has unveiled a new hospital blood glucose meter for testing situations where glucose meter interface capability is not needed. The introduction of StatStrip Xpress provides hospitals a choice of glucose monitors with or without a connectivity solution using the same Multi-Well test strip.


Like the StatStrip Glucose Hospital Meter, StatStrip Xpress elevates bedside glucose testing to a new level of analytical performance. It incorporates a new strip technology that uses four measuring wells. Nova's Multi-Well system measures and corrects hematocrit interference, as well as interferences from acetaminophen (Tylenol), uric acid, and ascorbic acid (vitamin C). StatStrip Xpress also eliminates oxygen, maltose, galactose, and xylose interferences. Freedom from interferences, coupled with excellent correlation to central laboratory reference methods, provides improved accuracy compared to conventional meters and strips.

StatStrip Xpress' 6-second analysis time, 1.2 microliter sample size, and simple operating steps make bedside glucose testing fast and easy. Unlike competitive glucose analyzers, StatStrip Xpress requires no calibration codes. This eliminates a potential error source, reduces the number of steps required for testing, and allows StatStrip Xpress manufacturing lots to be used interchangeably.
