American Scientific Resources, Inc. (the "Company" or "ASR") (Pink Sheets: ASFX) announces today that the Company has executed an exclusive distribution agreement with the nation's leading school heath supplies and equipment distributor, School Health Corporation. School Health will be the exclusive distributor of ASR's VeraTemp+ non contact thermometer in the school healthcare market in the US.
The exclusive territory includes selling through the distributor's sales network of over 60,000 schools (K-12), colleges and universities, early childhood, community health and professional sports teams. Ninety-five percent of the top 500 districts and largest universities in the country order from School Health annually.
The VeraTemp+™ Non-Contact Thermometer is the professional use version of ASR's award winning thermometry technology. Designed for more durable use with a protective medical grade silicon cover and wrist strap lanyard, the VeraTemp+ is ideally suited for use in clinics, hospitals, emergency medical services, long-term care facilities, schools and other public settings. Because VeraTemp+ can read patients' temperatures without physical contact, the thermometer is totally hygienic and there is no need for expensive and wasteful probe covers. Convenient and easy to use, VeraTemp's hygienic, touch-free design is an economical and eco-friendly solution.
Tom Wisniewski, marketing and product manager for School Health, is excited about bringing on the VeraTemp+ thermometer, "We are confident that U.S. schools will embrace the numerous ways that a durable, trauma-free, accurate thermometer like the VeraTemp+ can make a nurse's job so much easier. Considering the magnitude of its quality, the VeraTemp+ is also the most affordable option for schools, and its hygienic nature means no waste or cost of probe covers."
Dr. Christopher Tirotta, CEO of American Scientific, commented, "Establishing an agreement with a trusted distributor like School Health will enable us to educate our nation's schools not only on the benefits of non-contact thermometry, but on how our technology is the most modern, convenient and accurate option for children and adults. We look forward to a lasting partnership with School Health."
