TEC-6’s Innovations Include Ergonomic Handholds, Superior Durability and Barcode Tracking
Baltimore, MD (May 24, 2012) – Pevco, a leading provider of pneumatic tube delivery systems to the healthcare industry, today announced the debut of Pevco TEC-6™, a pneumatic tube carrier designed specifically for hospital material delivery. TEC-6 (Trackable Ergonomic Carrier, 6 inch) offers advances in performance and durability to improve how busy healthcare professionals deliver patient care.
“When designing the TEC-6, we studied how nursing, pharmacy and laboratory professionals use carriers in the course of their day. Existing models are difficult to handle, prone to damage and difficult to track,” explained Pevco’s Director of Product Development Steve Dahl. “Our intensive research and engineering effort resulted in the TEC-6, a durable carrier that makes sending, receiving and tracking patient-critical materials easy, safe and fast.”
Pevco TEC-6’s ergonomic design incorporates well placed, comfortable hand holds and contoured ends so staff can hold and load carriers more efficiently. Red/green latch status indicators help guarantee that carriers are closed properly.
The Pevco TEC-6 also includes integrated barcodes to enable real-time tracking of every delivery. When combined with Pevco Tracker™, transaction data and arrival confirmation for any carrier sent is stored in a database and available to authorized staff.
Molded from BPA-free Eastman Tritan™ copolyester, Pevco TEC-6 benefits from the material’s super- durability, lasting clarity, and scratch resistance. Combined with long-wearing nylon glide bands, tough stainless steel hinges, high-density polyethylene end-caps that absorb landing impact, and Pevco’s patented leak resistant seal, the TEC-6 is built to stand-up to the most demanding 24/7 hospital environment.
“In a busy hospital, healthcare professionals need systems that are dependable and easy to use. The new Pevco TEC-6 carrier’s advanced features support every hospital’s goal of delivering high quality, efficient patient care,” stated Fred Valerino, Jr., Pevco’s President.
The Pevco TEC-6 carrier is designed to be used with 6″ hospital pneumatic tube delivery systems and is available in three color combinations – clear/blue, clear/red and clear/green.
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, EDs 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.
