Milestone Scientific Inc. (NYSEAMERICAN:MLSS), a leading developer of computerized drug delivery instruments that provides virtually painless and precise injections, said it has begun selling its CompuFlo Epidural and CathCheck disposables to Regional Medical Center (RMC), a premier regional healthcare system in South Carolina.

In a statement, Arjan Haverhals, president of Milestone Scientific, commented: “I would like to thank the entire anesthesia staff at RMC for their willingness to pilot and then initiate commercial orders around the CompuFlo Epidural and CathCheck Systems. We believe this initial order of disposables, which followed extensive testing at the hospital, is further validation of the safety and economic benefits of our instruments and disposables.”
Leonard Osser, Interim CEO of Milestone Scientific, added: “This agreement marks our second important hospital agreement in just a matter of weeks. I’m pleased to report our sales pipeline, including advanced trials underway, is more robust than at any time in the Company’s history. A key element of our strategy is to focus our sales strategy around the disposable components of our system, which we believe will contribute to high margin, recurring revenue.
"Moreover, as we add new medical institutions to our client roster, the value proposition becomes even more evident to other healthcare systems. Given the safety and economic benefits of the CompuFlo, we are further encouraged and continue working toward our goal of establishing CompuFlo as the standard of care in labor and delivery anesthesia in the United States.”
