Milestone Scientific Announces International Expansion for their CompuFlo® Epidural Instrument
Signs distributors in Canada, Slovenia and United Arab Emirates; expands commercial usage at leading hospital in Germany
ROSELAND, N.J., Oct. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Milestone Scientific Inc. (NYSE:MLSS), a leading developer of computerized drug delivery instruments, that provide painless and precise injections, today reported that it has added three new international distributors for the CompuFlo Epidural Instrument , including Andau Medical in Canada, Sanolabor DD in Slovenia and New Al Farwaniya Surgicals and Medical Equipment LLC in the United Arab Emirates.
“The CompuFlo Epidural Instrument is an important and revolutionary advancement that will significantly improve women’s health during one of the most pivotal moments in life, the birth of a child,” said Sandi Wright, founder and CEO of Andau Medical. “Our collaboration with Milestone Scientific to bring this technology to Canada is a critical step towards providing all women with access to pain relief during labor that is both safe, and with a decreased risk of side effects. The CompuFlo Epidural Instrument not only improves patient outcomes, but also decreases overall cost to the health system, which is an important consideration for the Canadian publicly funded health system.”
Arjan Haverhals , CEO of Milestone Scientific , stated, “We are pleased to have expanded our international network with these distributors in key global markets. Each brings extensive relationships and a proven track record of introducing medical devices to their respective markets. The global network we are developing demonstrates the strong interest and growing demand for the CompuFlo Epidural Instrument. Andau Medical, Sanolabor and New Al Farwaniya are important additions, and assist in further adoption of our epidural instrument.”
“Additionally, we have witnessed increased usage at the University Hospital of Würzburg , a leading national hospital and medical teaching institute in Germany, which provides a strong case study for further expansion activities in Europe. We believe this also illustrates the positive response among physicians as they increase utilization of the CompuFlo Epidural Instrument within their practice. We look forward to advancing our commercialization efforts around the world, as we aim to establish the CompuFlo Epidural Instrument as the new standard of care,” concluded Mr. Haverhals.
Abraham Scheer, M.D., DABPN, with over 40 years of clinical experience as a neuro-hospitalist, states that he has seen too many cases of inadvertent epidural needle placement resulting in complications. Dr. Scheer commended Tracie White’s article in the August 2, 2021 issue of Scope , published by Stanford Medicine, titled: ” Post epidural headaches can be more serious than previously known .” Dr. Scheer went on to note, “I have known for many years the dural puncture rate is much higher than described in the literature.” Dr. Scheer praised Milestone Scientific for their FDA approved innovative technology, specifically developed for epidural anesthesia. He continued, “This FDA approved computer assisted technology can drastically reduce or eliminate the vast majority of the complications such that success rates, patient satisfaction, and patient safety are improved, while iatrogenic injury and potential liability are decreased.”
The CompuFlo Epidural Instrument offers objective detection of pressure changes to verify true loss of resistance and confirm epidural space within minutes. The clinical and safety benefits of the CompuFlo Epidural and CathCheck Verification Systems are backed by extensive published clinical data demonstrating significant reductions in epidural punctures, as well as complication rates, and contribute to a significant savings of time on the part of anesthesiologists.

ROSELAND, N.J., Oct. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Milestone Scientific Inc. (NYSE:MLSS), a leading developer of computerized drug delivery instruments, that provide painless and precise injections, today reported that Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, Fla., has begun the use of the CompuFlo Epidural Instrument . Memorial Regional Hospital is the flagship facility of the healthcare system and is one of the largest hospitals in Florida.

The validation of our system by this prestigious and renowned hospital system is most rewarding and beneficial to us at Milestone Scientific. This latest approval is a direct result of our new sales force expansion initiatives, and I’m encouraged by the growth of our sales pipeline and potential near-term opportunities.”
The clinical and safety benefits of the CompuFlo Epidural and CathCheck Verification Systems are backed by extensive published clinical data demonstrating significant reductions in epidural punctures, as well as complication rates, and contribute to a significant savings of time on the part of anesthesiologists.
Professor G. Capogna, anesthesiologist, author of the book entitled “Epidural Technique in Obstetric Analgesia” and member of the Scientific Advisory Board of Milestone Scientific, stated in his recent book: “Among new techniques, continuous real-time pressure-sensing technology is the only one that has been successfully validated and used in an adequate number of patients and that therefore may be considered as a new, promising technology with the potential of becoming the future standard for the epidural technique.”
The CompuFlo Epidural Instrument has the potential to significantly reduce costs associated with morbidity, providing a direct economic benefit to healthcare institutions. Similarly, the CathCheck Verification System technology has the potential to transform the monitoring of catheter placement following an epidural procedure by confirming the placement of a catheter within two minutes, versus the 20 to 40 minutes using conventional methods.
