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. For further information on these options, including full Ts & Cs, or to book a visit from one of our factory engineers, please contact us via: Tel: 0208 391 9558 or email: globalserviceoffer@dpmedicalsys.com

 

*10% discount applies on all purchase orders & instructions received prior to 30th September 2016.  This offer is only valid for new service contracts and customers who have purchased a Global Microscope from DP Medical.

World-leading scientists at London’s newest state-of-the-art research centre are furthering their studies into how brain circuits process information – and cutting edge scientific equipment provided by DP Medical will help them lead the way.Microscopes supplied to the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre at University College London by DP Medical

 

The Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour (SWC), located within University College London, offers an unparalleled research environment and its laboratories have recently been provided with 13 SOM 62 microscopes to help with their innovative work.

 

Owen Pemberton, DP Medical’s commercial director said: “We were delighted to have installed 13 SOM 62 microscopes at the SWC laboratories from Karl Kaps GmbH, our supplier in Germany.

 

“Typically the microscopes are made for ENT use but they make perfect affordable options for laboratories who are looking for quality optics. We are really looking forward to hearing about how scientists at the new research centre are putting them to good use and learning more about the ground breaking research they are developing.”

 

The SOM 62 microscopes are comprised of time-tested, nearly indestructible mechanical parts with outstanding optics and powerful illumination.

 

Exact, smooth positioning ensures ergonomic, fatigue-free functioning in everyday practice, with crystal-clear three-dimensional imaging characterised by great depth of focus and extraordinary colour brilliance. The versatile machines have different mounting systems making installation possible on walls, ceilings, examination units or roll-able floor stands, so an optimal solution is available for every kind of spatial requirement.

 

The Sainsbury Wellcome Centre opened in May 2016 and brings together world-leading scientists to investigate how brain circuits process information to create the neural representations that guide behaviour.


Cycle challenge surpasses fundraising target for ENT Africa

DP Medical Uncategorized Leave a comment

 

DP Medical Systems commercial director Owen Pemberton teamed up with medical device manufacturer Sheffmed last month, in a bid to help raise vital funds to deliver ENT and audiology training in Africa.

 

Owen joined Sheffmed director Alan McNulty for two legs of his epic ‘LEJOG 2016’ bike ride, which saw Alan cycle more than 1,200 miles from Lands End to John O’Groats in aid of the company’s ENT Africa programme.

 

More than £6,000 has been raised by the fundraising team, surpassing the initial target of £5,000 – the cost of training two ENT nurses in Malawi, where the ENT Africa programme focuses.

 

Owen Pemberton, said: “It was a real honour to join Alan for part of his LEJOG bike ride this summer. The temperatures were soaring and it was definitely hard work in places, but by keeping our minds focused on the fantastic cause we were raising money for, we did it.”

 

Alan reached John O’Groats after 10 gruelling days on the road, calling at ENT units across the country to rally support along the way.

 

Alan, said: “We’re thrilled to have not only met, but surpassed our fundraising target.

 

“It’s was a tough journey but one that will make a real difference to so many people less fortunate. We can now ensure the much needed training in Malawi happens and our heartfelt thanks go to everyone who has supported and contributed to the cause.”

 

The ENT Africa programme supports Malawi’s national development plan for ear care.

 

Donations can still be made to the charity, via JustGiving: https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/ent-africa

Technology boost for cervical cancer screening in London

Technology boost for cervical cancer screening in London

Cervical screening patients at a leading London NHS Trust will now benefit from an improved service thanks to innovative new scanning equipment.

The new technology – MediScan – is a pioneering capture and archive system for gynaecological examinations which has been installed in the three Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust Hospitals at Royal Free Hospital, Barnet Hospital and Chase Farm Hospital.

MediScan provides clinicians with a secure pathway for recording, storing and encrypting patient gynaecology examinations for analysis and archiving. The still images and video are captured in real-time and stored against the patient record for retrieval anywhere in the hospital.

The system – developed by DP Medical System Ltd – uses a simple to operate user interface, including touch screen technology and a question and answer based approach to data entry. Its digital still or video images are seen as benchmark quality by leading clinicians and have been used for illustration in medical texts.

Owen Pemberton, commercial director at DP Medical Ltd, said: “We are delighted to see Medicscan fully up and running at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust. The system provides gynaecology clinicians with a number of key benefits, including increased software security, improved patient experience through image sharing and a better platform for end-users to educate students and other clinical staff on complex colposcopy cases.

“We have developed MediScan with key opinion leaders and clinicians and it has now evolved into the essential workstation for every gynaecology practitioner.”

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

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.
