Cloud-based, data-driven cleaning system

Tork EasyCube is a cloud-based service that collects real-time data from connected devices. Displayed in an easy-to-use web application, precise information directs cleaning teams to exactly where they are needed. The Tork dispenser’s sensor technology, visitor counter units and DCUs measure visitor numbers and refill levels. Data from individual devices is displayed in the Tork EasyCube cloud-based application; and measurements track and predict use. The collected information can be used to plan for increased efficiency, and a more proactive and flexible approach to cleaning.


Breast biopsy system with imaging technology

Hologic’s Brevera Breast Biopsy System with CorLumina Imaging Technology, is a real-time breast biopsy and verification system that is designed to increase biopsy accuracy with real-time imaging. It delivers valuable information at the point of care, enhances workflow, improves the patient experience and streamlines the entire biopsy process from start to finish. It combines tissue acquisition, sample verification and advanced post-biopsy handling in one, integrated system. Designed for 2D and 3D breast biopsy, the system allows physicians to perform fast and efficient procedures that save costs and improve the patient experience.


Contained tissue extraction system

The Olympus Contained Tissue Extraction System combines the PneumoLiner tissue containment device, and laparoscopic PK Morcellator to provide certain appropriate, low-risk patients with a laparoscopic surgery option to avoid open hysterectomy and myomectomy. The PneumoLiner conforms to every abdominal size, avoiding intra-abdominal folding which can restrict movement, visualization, or inadvertent capture by the morcellator. It provides a barrier between target tissue and non-targeted abdominal contents, and maintains a barrier to the escape of fluids, cells and tissue fragments. The PK Morcellator’s anti-coring, tip-integrated peeling tip promotes peeling on target tissue and avoids tissue coring. Smoke management maintains clear visibility of the morcellator, the target tissue and collateral tissue while providing faster morcellation speed.
