ROSELAND, N.J., March 02, 2023 — Milestone Scientific Inc. (NYSE:MLSS), a leading developer of computerized drug delivery instruments that provides painless and precise injections, today announced that its CompuFlo® Epidural System has been granted registration with the U.S. Government’s System for Award Management (SAM). A SAM registration is required for entities to bid on contracts and conduct business with federal government agencies, including the Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs, Indian Health Service and other government agencies.
Arjan Haverhals, Chief Executive Officer of Milestone Scientific, noted, “We are pleased to receive this SAM registration for the CompuFlo® Epidural System, which is required by all commercial entities to sell products within the U.S. government. Given the safety benefits and efficiencies associated with our instrument, we believe there is a significant market opportunity within agencies such as the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs, where we believe our system will contribute to improved patient outcomes. This approval is an important step in the overall decision-making and payment process. In addition, we are actively pursuing U.S. Federal Supply Service (FSS) approval for the CompuFlo® Epidural Instrument which, if granted, would provide uniform pricing across government agencies.”
The clinical and safety benefits of the CompuFlo Epidural System are backed by extensive published clinical data demonstrating significant reductions in dural punctures, as well as complication rates, and contribute to savings of time on the part of providers. An independent study has shown that the CompuFlo Epidural System has the potential to reduce costs associated with morbidity, providing a direct economic benefit to healthcare institutions.
