Traded in other countries:ES4.Germany
Escalon Medical Corp. ( 'Escalon') is a Pennsylvania corporation initially incorporated in California in 1987 and reincorporated in Pennsylvania in November 2001. The Company operates in the healthcare market specializing in the development, manufacture, marketing and distribution of medical devices and pharmaceuticals in the areas of ophthalmology, diabetes, hematology and vascular access. Drew is a diagnostics Company specializing in the design, manufacture and distribution of instruments for blood cell counting and blood analysis. Drew is focused on providing instrumentation and consumables for the physician office and veterinary office laboratories. Drew sells two diabetic testing products: the DS5 and the Hb-Gold. The DS5 instrument, dispenser and associated reagent kit measure long-term glucose control in diabetic patients. Drew offers a array of equipment for use in the field of human and veterinary hematology. Sonomed develops, manufactures and markets ultrasound systems for diagnostic or biometric applications in ophthalmology. The systems are of four types: A-Scans, B-Scans, High Frequency B-Scans ( 'UBMs') and pachymeters. The A-Scan provides information about the internal structure of the eye by sending a beam of ultrasound along a fixed axis through the eye and displaying the various echoes reflected from the surfaces intersected by the beam. The B-Scan is a diagnostic tool that supplies information to physicians where the media within the eye are cloudy or opaque. The UBM is a high frequency/high resolution ultrasound device, designed to provide highly detailed information of the anterior segment of the eye. The pachymeter uses the same principles as the A-Scan, but the system is tailored to measure the thickness of the cornea. The Company distributes two intraocular gas products C3F8 and SF6, which are used by vitreoretinal surgeons as a temporary tamponade in detached retina surgery. The Company conducts development of medical devices for the diagnosis and monitoring of medical disorders in the areas of diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and hematology at the Company's Dallas, Texas, Miami, Florida and Rennes, France facilities. The Company conducts medical device and vascular access product development at its New Berlin, Wisconsin facility. The Company has 13 United States patents and 28 patents issued abroad that cover the Company's surgical products and pharmaceutical technology. The Company's competitors include ophthalmic-oriented companies that market a broad portfolio of products, including prescription ophthalmic pharmaceuticals, ophthalmic devices, consumer products and other eye care products; large integrated pharmaceutical companies that market a limited number of ophthalmic pharmaceuticals in addition to many other pharmaceuticals; and smaller specialty pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. The Company's products are subject to stringent ongoing regulation by the FDA and similar health authoritie
