  • What is the reliability of the unit?

We have tested our system and it has been reliable when used consecutively for over 1 million applications. The batteries will last for a minimum of 15,000 dispensing cycles. Our testing has proven that they can last much longer, as much as double this amount.


  • How much solution is dispensed?

The dispenser typically dispenses 1 ml of solution per application, but can be adjusted to meet the customer’s needs (at the factory). The black box, which controls the application being dispensed, can be interchanged should any problems arise or if the amount of solution needs to be adjusted, without removing the outer component from the wall.


  • What are the advantages of hands free over conventional pump systems?

We run a sealed tube directly from the bag of solution, which prevents any type of risk of contamination. Other units that use the reservoir system break the contamination barrier when they refill the unit with soap. Unless the soap is contained in a sealed bag, there is always the possibility of contamination.


  • Why change now?

Everything else has changed in the washroom area; the last step is the hands free soap dispenser. It is easier to use, thus empowering people to use it more often. Government regulations are changing to support the use of hands free systems.  The CDC has come out with new guidelines that are mandating changes in the work place to help eliminate cross contamination and reduce the spread of infection.


  • How much does it cost?

What is it worth to the client to reduce sick time in his work force, or to eliminate the possibility of contamination in the work place? We are here to provide the customer with an evaluation of our unit to help them improve their current working conditions in their place of business.


  • What trends are currently shaping the market place?

Everything is pushing towards hands free items in the foodservice, medical and safety environments.  This is inclusive of, but not limited to restrooms, food prep areas, surgical sterilization areas, emergency rooms and in elderly/long term care facilities. You will be able to provide your customers with the latest technological products, there by positioning yourself as the industry leader, and enhancing customer loyalty along with brand recognition.




CDC Requirements:

The Center for Disease Control has drafted new guidelines for hand-hygiene that include the use of alcohol based hand rubs, antibacterial soaps, and sanitizers.  The use of these products, together with a no touch dispensing system, have led to improved hand asepsis.  Update your infection control procedures with a Discovery Medical no touch hand-hygiene dispensing system for all your dispensing needs.  The Discovery Medical no touch hand-hygiene dispensing system reduces bacterial counts and increases compliance.  The Discovery Medical dispenser uses unique, state-of-the-art infrared laser technology to activate the dispensing of fluids and gels that improves the coverage in hand washing, sanitizing, employee or customer behavior, and overall compliance.  Aside from saving time, the Discovery Medical no touch hand-hygiene dispensing system is very convenient and can be installed anywhere, for a cost of pennies a day.



What’s New in Hand Hygiene? By University of Wales Institute Psychologist Debra Clayton and Infection Control Expert, Professor Christopher Griffith


The question that needs to be addressed is this: Why don’t people wash and dry their hands?  A study of this phenomenon by University of Wales Institute Psychologist Debra Clayton and infection control expert, Professor Christopher Griffith, reveals that knowledge, attitude and intent are not sufficient to drive hand-washing compliance.  The answer is to eliminate hand washing barriers and find, or improve upon, hand washing facilitators.  Bad hand washing habits are hard to change, however, cutting-edge hand washing and drying equipment can help shape new habits. 


Discovery Medical, Inc. has designed a totally automatic “Hands-Free” soap dispensing system, ES-800, that delivers soap, lotion, or anti-microbials automatically, reducing risk of cross-contamination.  Liquids are dispensed without touching dispenser levers, buttons, or pumps.


Discovery Medicals products are designed to reduce the risk of cross-contamination of germs and transmission of food borne pathogens.



New CDC Facts


The CDC released new guidelines at the Infectious Diseases Society of America's annual meeting in Chicago. The new guidelines advocate a comprehensive approach to hand hygiene and recommend that healthcare facilities change to alcohol-based hand rubs, otherwise known as instant sanitizers, in place of soap and water, except in cases where hands are visibly soiled. The agency said healthcare personnel are more inclined to use alcohol-based hand rubs because they are more convenient, and recent studies indicate hand rubs are more effective at killing bacteria than washing with soap and water

Dr. Boyce, a co-author of the new CDC study, states that "there are over 30 studies conducted in the last 20 years that show the health care workers have just not been able to wash their hands as often as recommended. The report also states, in several recent studies conducted in health care settings, they have promoted the use of the alcohol-based hand rubs.  They have demonstrated that there’s increased adherence of health care workers to recommended hand-washing policies."

The CDC estimates that nearly 2 million patients a year gets an infection in U.S. hospitals and about 90,000 die as a result. The CDC guideline on hand-hygiene has not been revised since 1985, and it replaces 1995 guidelines developed by the Association of Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology.
