Skyline Medical has announced that two new trials of the Streamway Fluid Waste Management System are underway in North Carolina and California.
Brier Creek Ambulatory Surgery Center, affiliated with the Duke Health Care System, and located in Raleigh, North Carolina, is in the process of validating the Streamway Fluid Management System for endoscopic procedures.
Additionally, Beverly Hospital, affiliated with the Adventist Health System, and located in Montebello, California, is conducting a trial in its radiology department.
Skyline Medical CEO Josh Kornberg said that the company is pleased that Brier Creek Ambulatory Surgery Center has chosen to trial the latest model of the Streamway System, which features technology designed to dispose of surgical fluid waste safely, without exposing medical professionals to infectious waste.
"The STREAMWAY System is also a great option for Radiology departments, which typically use glass evacuation bottles and plastic canisters for fluid collection and disposal. These types of procedures use a very high number of canisters for just one procedure, which is very inefficient, Kornberg added.
"The STREAMWAY System requires less time and expense than these traditional fluid disposal methods and we are delighted that this trial will enable the staff at Beverly Hospital to experience firsthand the benefits of using the STREAMWAY System.
"Radiology and endoscopy departments are two of our key target markets and we continue to remain focused on growing our profile in these areas throughout 2014," Kornberg concluded.
These new trials are in addition to the previously disclosed 55 Streamway units already scheduled for sale or trial in the first part of 2014.
