Innovative Medical Services Launches Reservoir Metering System, New Ionization Disinfecting Technology

Innovative Medical Services introduced its new Random Metering System in Atlanta
at the 4th Decennial Conference on Nosocomial and Healthcare-Associated
Infections. Based in El Cajon, California, the company markets water treatment
and disinfecting solutions to a broad range of customers including
pharmaceutical, healthcare and consumer markets.

"The recent national media coverage by CNN and 20/20 ... regarding the
serious ramifications associated with Legionnaires' disease and other
water-borne pathogens has had a surprising impact on these infection control
professionals," explained Gunner Lyslo, director of infectious diseases
management of Innovative Medical Services. "There is a considerable
heightened awareness about the role that contaminated water systems play in
nosocomial infections."

The Reservoir Metering System (RMS) is a non-halogen disinfection system that
effectively treats large volumes of water with ionic silver compounds. Designed
to be a cost effective alternative to the use of halogens (chlorine) for water
disinfection in either single pass or re-circulating systems, RMS technology
delivers ionic silver using proprietary assayed electrodes. The ions are metered
into the process water by dosing pumps based upon flow rates to ensure precise
dosage of ions. Generation of the ion concentrate is produced off-line by the
RMS without utilizing the process water, enabling the equipment to produce ions
more effectively and efficiently than conventional ionization systems.
