Georgia USA: Peezy Midstream to reduce public health lab workload
08th April 2020
Forte Medical’s US partner Owen Mumford Inc in Georgia USA, is working with the Governor’s Office, GEMA, Homeland Security and the Department of Public Health to provide critical medical devices to hospitals, clinics and healthcare professionals who are facing resource and supply shortages.
Five hundred thousand Unistik® safety lancets and 5,000 Peezy® urine specimen collection kits will be donated through GEMA to be distributed to Georgia’s healthcare partners and facilities in need. This donation assists those with supply concerns and also relieves the burden on the laboratories by providing a urine specimen collection system that is designed to greatly reduce contaminated samples and lessens the need for repeat testing.
