American Scientific Resources (ASR) has reported that due to the response of the Kidz-Med 5-in-1 Non-Contact thermometer at National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) Marketplace, it has decided to commence production for an additional 100,000 units to be delivered to the US in segments between August and October.

NACDS Marketplace is the premier annual retail event that retailers utilise to specifically meet with companies to find new products to bring to their stores in time for the 2010/2011 seasons.

Christopher Tirotta, CEO of American Scientific, said: “I would like to thank our team including the Greenwood Group for helping to make our participation at NACDS very worth while for the company.”

Jason Roth, senior vice president, said: “I was very pleased by how our product was received. I knew the Kidz-Med 5-in-1 would be well received, but this show confirmed it.”
