NASHVILLE, TN, September 28, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- MediPurpose(tm), a manufacturer and master distributor of medical products, today announced it will be attending the 2013 NANN Conference in Nashville, Tennessee, October 2-5, 2013. In addition to representation from its specialty distributor partners, MediPurpose will have two specialists available to demonstrate and answer questions about its new babyLance(tm) safety heelstick device.
The 29th annual conference, presented by the National Association of Neonatal Nurses, offers neonatal nurses and healthcare providers an opportunity to meet a broad and diverse set of professional needs and to stay connected on an inter-professional level.
MediPurpose Western Regional Sales Manager Shawn McKeever and Eastern Regional Sales Manager Todd Vecellio will be demonstrating babyLance at Ameritus Medical Products' exhibitor booth #318. Ameritus, a subsidiary of Kentec Medical Inc., is the exclusive babyLance Western regional distributor.
babyLance safety heelsticks are single-use neonatal heel incision devices, used for the collection of blood from the heels of infants. Specifically designed to meet end-user expectations for the ideal neonatal heelstick, babyLance provides enhanced stability, comfort and ease of use.
Earlier this year, MediPurpose received U.S. FDA clearance to market babyLance with the additional claim of having a sharps prevention feature to protect the user from a sharps injury.
"We are excited to again attend the NANN Conference and engage with the many knowledgeable participants," said MediPurpose founder and CEO Patrick Yi, whom also led the babyLance design team. "In fact, we conducted a survey of neonatal nurses at the 2011 NANN Conference early in babyLance's design phase, and the results played a significant role in its development."
