DYNALABS LLC and a large North American hospital have signed an agreement to test their DVx™ against drug diversion.
Drug diversion, theft and unapproved usage of narcotic drugs, is a common problem in health care today. Since the DVx-04™ can identify such drugs, and also detect if they have been manipulated, the DVx-04 could be used as a possible tool to prevent this development. The interest in using the DVx-04™ for this purpose has been strengthened in the recent past. After a period of negotiation, Dynalabs LLC has now signed an agreement with a large North American hospital for an evaluation of the DVx-04™ against drug diversion. The system will be installed very soon and the evaluation is expected to last up to 3 months.
