ADC Launches our Next Generation Diagnostic Station: The ADView 2

Every so often I pen a blog that is shamelessly self-promotional and this is one of those moments. I am thrilled to announce the launch of our latest iteration of the category-changing Modular Diagnostic Station: the ADView 2. It’s an expandable, customizable, and amazingly affordable spot vital signs monitor for blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, and SpO2.

UDI Compliance: Ahead of the Curve

A few years ago, the FDA instituted new medical device product labeling and registration requirements akin to those mandated in the pharmaceutical sector. They’re called UDI, for unique device identification. Today, ADC is 100% compliant, not only meeting the deadline for Class II medical devices, but finishing two years ahead of the curve on Class I products.

If It Sounds Too Good to Be True, It’s Probably an Adscope

Unlike some of our competitors, we believe that performance still trumps aesthetics when it comes to a pro-grade stethoscope (well, any stethoscope for that matter). While we get how important style and personalization have become, a stethoscope’s true worth is based on its acoustic capabilities and build quality -- and not on a clever name for a royal blue tube.

ADC and the COVID-19 Outbreak

Dear ADC Community,
We’re writing today to share some updates about how ADC is responding to the COVID-19 outbreak.
  • While current demand for certain product categories – things like non-contact and fast-read thermometers, thermometer sheaths, and disposable stethoscopes, for example – is outpacing supplies, we have been working without interruption to fulfill orders as completely and quickly as possible. 

Stethoscopes: The Value of a Comprehensive Warranty

Warranties are a key component of a product’s value, and ADC has some of the most comprehensive in the industry. Nearly all models in our Adscope Cardiology and Clinician lines offer lifetime warranties, which translates to a lifetime of savings on parts, repairs, and refurbishment.

Happy Anniversary to Us!

Thirty-five years. If you asked me 36 years ago if I would co-own and manage a business this long I would have said you were nuts. I was just 25 when Neal and I cofounded ADC with a whopping $35,000 in start-up capital. We rented a dilapidated 700-square-foot storefront in Copiague, New York, offering 31 items: a selection of leather and nylon EMT holsters and the instruments that go in them.

We Want to Hear from You

Good or bad, we want to hear from you. Whether you are an authorized ADC dealer selling our product or a medical professional or institution owning and using that product, we want your feedback. While some get defensive in the face of criticism, we believe you learn far more from your mistakes and criticism than you do from your successes and flowery compliments.

How ADC Celebrates Earth Day

Almost 50 years ago, the U.S. marked its first observance of Earth Day. The event focused on environmental education. In the decades since, supporters have worked to make Earth Day a day of awareness and action with a focus on long-term ecological sustainability. Here at ADC, our commitment to sustainable growth touches nearly every dimension of our day-to-day activities.

Don’t be fooled by low (or high) prices

Although the average price of core diagnostic products is relatively low, you still want to make sure you get your money’s worth. We’ve all learned some hard lessons about buying cheap; yet choosing the highest-priced option isn’t always the solution, either.  We offer some tips to help you make a truly informed purchase decision.
