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.

What to Look for in an Electronic Stethoscope

The electronic scope market is different from the acoustic scope market for a few key reasons. First, there just aren’t that many electronic models from which to choose. Second, because price points are relatively high – $199 to $600 or more – you really need to assess the parameters that matter. So how to determine which model is right for you?

The Adscope 658: Worth the Wait

On paper the goal was simple: build an electronic scope with great sound, robust construction, just the right amount of whistles and bells, an industry leading warranty, and an affordable price.

The 658 builds on the previous generation of electronic models and is our best digital scope yet.

Out with the Old: Our Transition to Phthalate Alternatives

More than a decade ago the Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control began studying phthalates, a group of chemicals used as binding agents and to make plastics more flexible. Though neither has yet issued new regulations for the medical device industry, ADC has been moving to alternative ingredients, opting to stay ahead of the issue.

Learning from Our Customers

Customer feedback, positive or negative, whether from a reseller of our products or a consumer, has truly helped make ADC a better company.

We learn something new every day.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and it’s likely we’re all touched in some way by this terrible disease.

The ABC's of IFU's

IFU’s or Instructions for Use, sometimes called Owner’s Manuals or simply Operating Instructions, are everywhere. From the one-page sheet that comes with a new table lamp to the one-pound tome included with your new flat-screen TV, there’s no escaping them. And when you’re talking about medical devices, the importance of reading the IFU’s can't be overstated.
