Baltimore, MD (January 3, 2012) – Pevco, a leading provider of pneumatic tube delivery systems to the healthcare industry, today introduced Pevco Smart Seal, a heat seal bagging system that is integrated within a pneumatic tube station to make it easy for staff to guard against spills and protect fragile cargo traveling through a pneumatic tube system.
“Bagging or double bagging spill-prone lab specimens, valuable blood products and fragile pharmaceuticals is a time consuming and unreliable process,” explained Joe Gaultney, Pevco’s Director of System Engineering. “Smart Seal eliminates that error-prone process and prevents costly system shutdowns caused by spills, and reduces waste caused by damaged materials.”
Hospital staff simply place items into the single use Pevco Smart Seal bag and slip the top of the bag between the heat sealing guides. Smart Seal holds the bag in place until the four second heat seal process is complete virtually eliminating any chance of error. UL Listed and engineered to withstand the demanding 24/7 healthcare environment, Pevco Smart Seal units can be installed within a Pevco pneumatic tube station or placed on a nearby countertop.
Pevco’s Smart Seal bags, available in several colors to identity content or destination, fit securely within a carrier providing extra cushioning and support for fragile or small items. The bags are available in multiple sizes, as well in a patent-pending three layer, two pouch configuration that separates individual specimens or provides a protected area for paperwork.
Pevco designs, manufactures, installs and supports hospital pneumatic tube delivery systems that enable healthcare professionals to quickly, safely and reliably transport patient-critical materials between labs, pharmacies, blood banks, ORs, ERs and nurses’ stations. Used by more than 600 leading healthcare facilities, Pevco’s flexible, intelligent products consistently reduce hospital operating costs and are compatible with all competing pneumatic tube systems. Pevco is headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland, with support staff positioned throughout the United States.
