Abaxis VetScan VUE

The Abaxis VetScan VUE is the first app-based diagnostic instrument in the veterinary marketplace. Paired with patented Rapid Test cartridges and the VUE mobile app, veterinarians are now able to quickly scan patient samples, diagnose life-threatening diseases and automatically document the results in the patient’s chart from the exam room. Obtaining accurate test results is the most critical task in the diagnosis of infectious diseases. Prior to the Vetscan VUE, veterinary staff were required to hand treat each Rapid Test and then perform a visual eye exam to determine the results. The purpose of integrating the Vetscan VUE reader and the VUE app was to deliver accurate results on every test while simultaneously saving time for the veterinary staff. By utilizing the user’s mobile device, the VUE is reduced to a quarter of the size of related devices and has only one physical touchpoint: the Rapid Test drawer.

Eargo

Eargo is a Class I FDA-regulated hearing device designed for adults who experience mild to moderate hearing loss. Invented by an ENT surgeon with more than 30 years’ experience, Eargo earbuds are virtually invisible. They work with patented Flexi Fibers, a soft material that comfortably suspends the device in the ear without blocking natural sound from entering the ear canal. While hearing aids typically amplify sound using a small speaker, the Eargo device allows bass sounds to travel into the ear so only treble sounds need be amplified. The design language for Eargo was inspired by consumer technology rather than medical devices. It defies the notion that hearing aids can’t be beautiful and desirable. Traditional hearing aids can be frustrating for users, with tiny batteries, screws, and buttons that are nearly impossible for people with low dexterity to use. The portable charger was designed to be discreet and beautiful and to solve battery power, one of the biggest pain points when it comes to hearing aids.

ASP STERRAD with ALLClear® and Velocity™ BI System

The STERRAD Velocity™ is a hydrogen peroxide biological indicator system that uses advanced optical measurement technology to confirm sterilization of reprocessed surgical instruments within 30 minutes, rather than 24 hours like other systems. The fast turn-around helps meet operating-room demands, and the embedded technology reduces the risk of prematurely releasing frequently needed surgical instruments. The STERRAD ALLClear® system is the next-generation low-temperature sterilization system that helps central sterile service departments sterilize and reprocess instruments for operating rooms quickly and consistently. The ALLClear® technology uses proprietary algorithms to minimize interruptions and cycle cancellations and to increase efficiency.
