WESTON, Fla., Sept. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Kidz-Med Inc., a subsidiary of American Scientific Resources, Inc. (Pink Sheets: ASFX) today announced the receipt of a follow-up purchase order of equal significance from the same non-profit group that recently ordered and closed a large purchase of Kidz-Med's Thermofocus 5-in-1 thermometers, leading to the highest revenue week in the Company's history.
Dr. Christopher F. Tirotta, American Scientific Resource's CEO, says, "We are delighted to see a follow up purchase order from this new vendor. We see this also as evidence of the challenges of the current healthcare climate, and that proactive action is the best course."
The Company has experienced increased inquiries about the Kidz-Med Thermofocus since as early as May of this year. ASR surpassed a previously reported historical achievement of receiving $30,000 in online revenue within a month and a half, attributing the success to PR, social media and SEO/SEM tactics which enabled people to find them as a go-to resource. The Company attributes the first week of September's success to the same efforts.
Dr. Tirotta continues, "Martin Tsai, President of the Taiwan Center of Flushing, New York, is a leader in the non-profit world, as he will be giving this vast amount of thermometers to help Taiwanese citizens in the event of an emergency. The public is listening to their government agencies by having the necessary solutions available in the event of a crisis."
The Kidz-Med Thermofocus, which was used by medical personnel in Asia during the SARS epidemic (See BBC article: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/2986469.stm) and is an ideal instrument to use to diagnose fevers associated with the flu since it has absolutely no contact with the skin, making for a completely hygienic and non-invasive experience; a reading is taken in a second and the thermometer is clinically proven to be accurate and safe.
Kidz-Med has been dually fulfilling their mission of providing individuals and their families with options to make their lives safer and healthier by becoming the exclusive seller of the world's only FDA Approved Home Needle Destruction Device, which will enable specialty injection drug users to properly and safely dispose of their used needles at home.
