Edison Nation Medical Secures Over $10 Million in Purchase Orders for Personal Protective Equipment in First Week Since Launch
BETHLEHEM, Pa. – April 16, 2020 - Edison Nation, Inc., a multifaceted ecosystem that fosters innovation and drives IP, media and consumer products, announces that it has received over $10 million in orders for the purchase of personal protective equipment during its first week since launch.
The current orders are for a range of products including gel-based hand sanitizer, liquid sanitizer, and protective masks, and the Company anticipates the orders will ship during the current fiscal quarter. Our sourcing team has been successful in its ability to secure verified suppliers for the delivery of thirty-two Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) products to address the COVID crisis as it continues to develop.
“With the Coronavirus pandemic effecting thousands of families and healthcare workers in the U.S., we remain focused on furthering the development of our PPE supply network and the Edison Nation Medical brand,” said Edison Nation Chief Executive Officer Chris Ferguson. “I appreciate the effort our U.S. and Hong Kong based teams, as well as our feet on the ground in China, who have worked so diligently around the clock to allow us to deploy these products.”
CDC recommendations reflect the important role of hand hygiene for preventing the transmission of pathogens in healthcare settings for a wide range of pathogens. The ability of hand hygiene, including hand washing or the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers to prevent infections is related to reductions in the number of viable pathogens that transiently contaminate the hands. Hand washing mechanically removes pathogens, while laboratory data demonstrate that 60% ethanol and 70% isopropanol, the active ingredients in both CDC-recommended alcohol-based hand sanitizers and Edison Medical Hand Sanitizer products, inactivates viruses that are genetically related to, and with similar physical properties as, the 2019-nCoV.
The Company will inventory healthcare related products including hand sanitizers, face masks and other PPE products that will be available to our clients inclusive of hospitals, government agencies, distributors and Fortune 500 retailers through its Edison Nation Medical portal.
