I remember the days when prescription and over-the-counter drugs used to be quite expensive. As a regular customer (yes, I get to visit the pharmacy quite often), this takes a huge toll on my paycheck (not to mention the entire family budget) whenever someone in my family catches a cold, gets an infection, or any other disease. We experienced a harder time when we get confined in a hospital and have to undergo expensive treatments.
Fortunately, generic drugs and modern medical devices have been invented. I’m so thankful for advances in the world of medicine. Thanks to these cheaper alternatives, we can now afford high quality medicine. My family can pay for prescription or over-the-counter drugs, as well as medical devices, such as syringes, without making a huge dent on our monthly budget.
We can also undergo the necessary treatment procedures without worrying that the expenses will bury us in great debt. The reason why these treatment procedures are expensive is because they involve the use of expensive branded medical devices. But since clinics and hospitals are starting to use generic products, their medical services have become more affordable.
A Thank You Note to Kemper Medical
I learned that a lot of the tools and medication that my family has been able to afford was from Kemper Medical. So I did a little research about the company. Here’s what I found out:
Kemper Medical is a national and global distributor of high quality medical products, including angiographic syringes among others. Although unbranded, its medical devices are just as good as their expensive counterparts. For years, they have supplied manufacturers and exporters of medical imaging equipment for MRI and CT. They are a recognized leader in contrast injector technologies.
In 2008, the company was built by Greg Kemper. He was an Ultrasound, X-ray, and CT tech as well as a manager of the radiology department. Due to his previous experiences and work, he has acquired sufficient knowledge regarding medical equipment. We trust the company that they have our best interest in their heart.
They have everything customers might possibly need, from CT injector syringes to other medical devices. They have a huge online catalog that features their products. Unlike popular brands, they do not sell their products for such high prices. Their products are affordable and suitable for people who are on a budget. We like it because we can get the most of our money here.
I’m a busy person. I do not have the luxury of time to deal with a complicated ordering system. Thankfully, Kemper Medical has a simple and easy to use web interface. I was able to compare multiple products on the site before placing my order. Customers can also reach them via e-mail, fax, and phone.
Judging Beyond the Price Tag
People should know that just because a company offers products at lower prices does not mean that they are frauds or scammers. Sometimes companies are able to offer products at much lower prices because they do not spend tons of money on advertising and marketing campaigns. They operate on a razor thin margin, and they understand the growing needs of their customers.
It is good to know that there are companies like Kemper Medical. They distribute medical supplies all over the world, representing more than twenty-four major manufacturers. They are also continuing to expand their products, so they can cater to more customers. I like the fact that their products are OEM equivalent, so I am sure that I am in safe hands.
Aside from CT and MRI injector syringes, they also have generic high pressure syringes that are compatible with the MRI and CT contrast media injection systems of many pharmaceutical companies. Their delivery systems for equivalent high pressure syringes include the following:
Mallinckrodt CT 9000 ADV. It makes use of a single head for delivering contrast media. It also accommodates front loading pre-filled syringes and empty syringes. This system is operated from a touchscreen that allows for injection activation via several key strokes. It is also programmable for up to 4 phases, including injection and scan delay features.
Optivantage Dual-Head. It features a Patency Check that allows imaging machine operators to verify if there are any patent fluid pathways before injecting the contrast media and Timing Bolus to make sure that optimum image quality is achieved through a scan delay. Contrast media is injected first, and then followed up with a saline flush. In addition, it lets the operator perform up to 6 phases of alternating injections of saline and contrast media. It also lets them simultaneously makes injections. There are faceplates available for both pre-filled and empty syringes.
For their Optivantage and CT 9000 ADV, they offer the following equivalent high pressure syringe products:
OEM Equivalent 844015 and OEM Equivalent 900099 syringes. Every kit has a 150-cm coiled tube and a 200-ml syringe. Every case has fifty syringes. As a customer, I do not like to wait a long time. Good thing, we only have to wait a couple of days before the package arrives.
OEM Equivalent 844021. Every kit has a 150-cm Y-coiled tube with dual-check valve and a 200-ml syringe. They also offer an 844021 equivalent 200-ml syringe with a long spike instead of coiled tubing for the purpose of refilling the syringes.
I can honestly say that I am very satisfied with the way the company operates. They have a diverse range of products at affordable prices, and they deliver the products within a couple of days.
