Calling all owners of Global microscopes!

DP Medical Blog Leave a comment

In our latest blog, Doug Pitman, managing director of DP Medical Systems, puts servicing under the microscope.  

 

“We have been selling the Global dental microscope for over 25 years now. During that time it has been adopted by hundreds of dentists as more and more of them realise the potential benefits this technology offers. It can be used across all areas of dentistry but in endodontics it is particularly essential to ensure accurate and predictable treatment.

 

“The Global microscope is designed for many years of constant use and, here at DP Medical Systems, we have come across hundreds of microscopes which have been in service for almost 20 years. This longevity is assured by regular servicing from our factory trained engineers and helped by Global’s lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects.

 

“As with any piece of equipment, performance to specification is vital for effective use. A robust care, maintenance and service programme covers all functions, testing and cleaning and ensures optimum performance whilst avoiding any unpredictable down time.

 

“Global microscopes are fully upgradeable and a constant programme of R&D means new improved accessories and components are available. All units can be updated to the latest specification such as original light systems can be upgraded to the new high intensity LED lights which is of real benefit.

 

“A regular service, either by contract with regular visits or as and when required, enables our engineers to advise of these upgrade options and recommend accordingly. It’s a small investment to make to ensure peak performance.”

 

DP Medical Systems, the exclusive distributor of Global Microscopy products in the UK and Ireland, is currently offering 10% off* the cost of all new service contracts and service visits booked on all Global microscopes before 30th September 2016.

Owen gears up for charity challenge

Owen gears up for charity Challenge

OWEN Pemberton, commercial director at DP Medical Systems, is getting set to cycle more than 100 miles this month, in a bid to help raise vital funds to train doctors and nurses in Africa. In his latest blog, Owen looks ahead to the challenge:

“Giving back to the community is something that’s very important to us here at DP Medical Systems.

“So, when I was asked by Alan McNulty – director of medical manufacturing firm, Sheffmed – to accompany him for two legs of a 1,200-mile bike ride to raise funds to train doctors and nurses in Africa, it was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.

“Alan’s cycling the length of the country, from Lands End to John O’Groats, over 10 days in July, visiting ENT departments along the way to raise awareness of the challenge and drive fundraising further.

“I’ll be joining him for two days of the ride, from Taunton to Bristol on Tuesday 19 July, and from Sheffield to Harrogate on Friday 22 July.

“Every penny we raise will go towards providing ENT clinical training for nurses and young doctors in Malawi, Africa, helping to form best practice for care in the country and build effective healthcare services there.

“The cost of a months’ training is around £2,500 per person, and the team are hoping to raise enough to fund two nurses at a cost of £5,000.

“This amount will enable both nurses to undergo the right education and training to allow them to perform ENT procedures.

“It’s an honour to be riding alongside Alan for two legs of his epic journey. I’ve no doubt it’ll be gruelling at times, but by keeping in mind the important cause we’re riding for, it’s sure to be a success.”

All donations will be match funded by Sheffmed.

Showcasing innovation at RCOG 2016

Showcasing innovation at RCOG 2016

The Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists (RCOG)’s World Congress 2016 saw more than 2,000 obstetricians and gynaecology (O&G) professionals gather to learn about the latest technologies and clinical techniques in the field.

For our team at DP Medical, the event – held 20-22 June 2016 – provided a great chance to showcase the products and equipment we supply to the sector, as well as the opportunity to network with some of the leading names in the field of O&G.

The congress provided an engaging programme of speakers, too, including Dr Pierre Martin-Hirsch, Consultant Gynaecological Oncologist and Gynaecologist at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Dr Martin-Hirsch delivered a presentation about the new technologies available within colposcopy, and included some excellent clinical data about one of the products we’re proud to offer our customers – the Zedscan cervical screening device by Zilico.

The hand-held device, which uses Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS), analyses tissue structure and identifies pre-cancerous and cancerous cells in women suspected of having cervical neoplasia following an abnormal cervical smear test.

Results are immediately displayed on the handset, enabling the clinician to make decisions about the management of the patient at the first visit.

Following Dr Martin-Hirsch’s presentation, our team welcomed a number of RCOG delegates to our stand, who were keen to learn more about the device.

For further information about the ZedScan, as well as our other O&G products – including our own capture and archive system, MediScan – visit www.dpmedicalsys.com/medical/
