Escalon® Medical Corp. Enters Agreement to Distribute Diaton Tonometer

The Diaton Tonometer joins Sonomed Escalon's VuPad™ at ASCRS Booth 873

ARDMORE, Pa., April 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Escalon Medical Corp. (Nasdaq: ESMC) today announced that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Long Beach, NY based BiCOM Inc., to distribute its transpalpebral "Diaton" tonometer. The Diaton tonometer will be featured alongside the Company's new VuPad™ ultrasound system at the Annual Symposium and Congress of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) in Boston, April 25-29 (booth 873).

"We are excited to offer the Diaton tonometer as a complementary product to our pachymetry ultrasound products," commented Chief Executive Officer, Richard J. DePiano Jr. "Through our experienced sales organization with reach into 90 countries, we are well positioned to expand distribution of the Diaton tonometer, particularly into Asia and Europe. Adding best-in-class ophthalmic product solutions to our distribution network also demonstrates our ongoing commitment to build on our position as a leader in ophthalmic diagnostic instrumentation."

The Diaton tonometer is the world's only non-corneal contact tonometer used through the eyelid to quickly and painlessly determine intraocular pressure without directly touching the cornea or requiring use of topical anesthesia. The Diaton tonometer is particularly useful in cases where standard direct applanation tonometry is difficult or not viable, such as with pediatric patients, in presence of certain corneal pathology, following corneal surgery, and in cases of eye trauma.

The Sonomed Escalon booth 873 at ASCRS will also feature for sale the Company's newly introduced VuPad™ portable ultrasound device. The VuPad™ had a successful showing at the recent 2014 World Ophthalmic Congress in Tokyo as well as The Exchange 2014 in Boston, the annual meeting of Vision Source, North America's premier network of private practice optometrists.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
As organizations shift towards IT-as-a-service models, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and now cloud environments grows with it. Commvault can ensure protection, access and E-Discovery of your data – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud, or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enterprise.

"Cloud computing is certainly changing how people consume storage, how they use it, and what they use it for. It's also making people rethink how they architect their environment," stated Brad Winett, Senior Technologist for DDN Storage, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
FinTechs use the cloud to operate at the speed and scale of digital financial activity, but are often hindered by the complexity of managing security and compliance in the cloud. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Sesh Murthy, co-founder and CTO of Cloud Raxak, showed how proactive and automated cloud security enables FinTechs to leverage the cloud to achieve their business goals. Through business-driven cloud security, FinTechs can speed time-to-market, diminish risk and costs, maintain continu...
CIOs and those charged with running IT Operations are challenged to deliver secure, audited, and reliable compute environments for the applications and data for the business. Behind the scenes these tasks are often accomplished by following onerous time-consuming processes and often the management of these environments and processes will be outsourced to multiple IT service providers. In addition, the division of work is often siloed into traditional "towers" that are not well integrated for cro...

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in t...

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
