SKYLINE MEDICAL INC. (SKLN) - Description of business

Company Description
Skyline Medical, formerly BioDrain Medical, Inc., has a fully automated, patented, FDA cleared, surgical fluid disposal system that virtually eliminates certain operating room workers' exposure to blood, irrigation fluid and other potentially infectious fluids found in the surgical environment. Today's manual surgical fluid handling methods of hand-carrying filled surgical fluid canisters and emptying these canisters is an exposure risk and an antiquated approach to the handling of surgical fluid waste. Skyline's STREAMWAY System fully automates the collection, measurement and disposal of surgical fluids and is designed to result in: 1) reducing overhead costs to hospitals and surgical centers, 2) improving Occupational State and Health Association (OSHA) and other regulatory compliance agencies' safety concerns, and 3) streamlining the efficiency and reducing the operating costs of the operating room.Skyline's STREAMWAY System is eco-friendly as it contributes to cleaning up the environment. Currently, approximately 50 million bloody, potentially disease infected canisters go to landfills annually in the United States. These tainted canisters can remain in landfills for years to come. With the installation of Skyline's STREAMWAY System, the number of canisters can be significantly reduced. Skyline Medical, Inc.'s STREAMWAY System is designed to make the operating room and our environment safer, cleaner, and better. Skyline products are currently being represented by independent professional sales representatives that cater to the needs of hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers across the country.
