Skyline Medical, Inc., formerly BioDrain Medical, producer of the FDA-approved STREAMWAY System for automated, direct-to-drain surgical fluid disposal, has been selected as one of only 10 companies in the running for the opportunity to showcase its product to the 2013 LifeScience Alley Conference on November 20, 2013 in Minneapolis, Minn. The opportunity for Skyline Medical to prominently exhibit its flagship technology will help generate additional awareness among the life science and healthcare companies in attendance.
LifeScience Ally's annual conference recognizes that life science industries are working to adapt to and survive the national and global healthcare transformation. The conference gathers life science leaders from more than 450 companies, 24 states and 10 countries to hear industry thought leaders discuss the far-reaching impacts of the healthcare transformation and emerging new business models.
"The STREAMWAY System is the ideal solution for fluid waste management, and 2013 has been an incredibly successful year for us. Not only have we penned multiple installation deals across the United States, we are now established as the go-to solution in the industry and are taking a significant amount of market share from a major competitor," said Josh Kornberg, CEO of Skyline Medical.
Kornberg continued, "It's an honor to be considered one of the top new technologies at this year's LifeScience Alley conference. We hope to make it into the top three, so we can present the STREAMWAY System to all of the conference attendees and generate even more awareness about the benefits of our solution – from its environmental advantages and ease of use to how much safer it will keep hospital and surgical center personnel."
The FDA-approved STREAMWAY System is designed to improve safety and efficiency in the operating room by safely and seamlessly managing surgical fluid waste disposal with its direct-to-drain technology. The STREAMWAY System virtually eliminates certain operating room workers' exposure to blood, irrigation fluid and other potentially infectious fluids found in the surgical environment while dramatically decreasing costs to dispose of surgical waste. The STREAMWAY System is a stationary system designed to be installed into each surgical room that is hooked into a hospital's existing drain and vacuum system.
