Kidz-Med to Launch the Thermofocus(R) 5-in-1 Exclusively at Walgreens Stores Nationwide
Date:10/18/2007

New Device is the World's First Accurate Non-Contact Clinical Thermometer

NEW PALTZ, N.Y., Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Kidz-Med, Inc., a division of American Scientific Resources, (ASFX-OTC) today announced the U.S. launch of the Thermofocus(R) 5-in-1 thermometer, the first non-contact clinical thermometer in the world, now available in Walgreens drug stores nationwide.

The revolutionary Thermofocus 5-in-1, made in Italy and long recommended by doctors throughout Europe and Asia, takes a temperature in a second without touching a child's skin or ear. The Thermofocus 5-in-1 uses a completely safe infrared technology proven to be as accurate as a rectal thermometer.

"As a physician and father of two children, I know that no parent wants to disturb or wake a sick child to take a temperature", says Dr. Christopher F. Tirotta, founder of Kidz-Med, Inc. and Director of Cardiac Anesthesia at the Congenital Heart Institute of Miami Children's Hospital and Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. "All you do is point the Thermofocus 5-in-1 at a child's forehead and when the LED light beam forms a single red dot, the core body temperature is displayed on an easy to read screen, and it can store up to nine temperature readings."

The Thermofocus 5-in-1, poised to become the new gold standard in thermometry, is non-invasive, quick, precise, hygienic, safe, trauma-free, and it can take 5 different types of readings: core body temperature, babies' bottle, food, bath water, and nursery. The Thermofocus 5-in-1 can even help detect inflammation, circulatory problems, and infections.

"At Walgreens, we're always seeking out new products that offer solutions to consumer needs," said Robert Tompkins, Walgreens divisional merchandise manager for Health and Wellness. "We believe the Thermofocus will have strong appeal for parents and we're pleased to be the exclusive U.S. retailer of this advanced technology."
