We expect that this distribution agreement will create immediate sales and service opportunities and increase our penetration into the fast-growing healthcare providers market."
Ron Benincasa, VP Sales and Marketing for Thermomedics, commented, "Sales of our TouchFree clinical thermometer, Caregiver, are continuing to soar based upon the demand from new infection control protocols being implemented at many of the world's hospitals and healthcare facilities, with an emphasis on reduced contagion. Our Caregiver thermometer provides medical professionals, especially in urgent situations treating highly infectious diseases such as Ebola, Flu, and other Viral and Bacterial entities, with a TouchFree™ thermometer that will help minimize contact and enhance infection control."
