About BioDrain Medical, Inc.

BioDrain Medical, Inc. has a fully automated, patented and FDA cleared surgical fluid disposal system that virtually eliminates operating room workers' exposure to blood, irrigation fluid and other potentially infectious fluids found in the surgical environment. Current 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. BioDrain's STREAMWAY System however fully automates the collection, measurement and disposal of surgical fluids, resulting in: 1) reducing overhead costs to hospitals and surgical centers, 2) improving the Occupational State and Health Association (OSHA) and other regulatory compliance, and 3) improving the efficiency of the operating room (and thereby making surgeries more profitable).

BioDrain's STREAMWAY System presents a sustainable solution to fluid disposal in operating rooms. Presently, around 50 million bloody, potentially disease infected canisters go to landfills in the United States annually. Moreover, these tainted canisters can remain in landfills for years. With the installation of BioDrain's STREAMWAY System, the number of these canisters can be significantly reduced, making both the operating room and our environment safer and cleaner. Independent professional sales representatives that cater to the needs of hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers across the country are currently representing BioDrain products.
