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. And though we all love when a customer heaps praise on our products or services, it is the criticisms that drive change in a company responsive to its customers’ needs. We learn something new every day.

Two New Ways to Shop Smarter

At ADC, our commitment to feature-rich products isn’t just about what we sell, it also defines our approach to service and support. That’s why we’re always working to improve the ADC experience – before, during, and after your purchase. To that end, we’ve launched two new features on our website that we think you’ll find helpful: MSRP pricing and expanded design themes.

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. Thanks to the American Cancer Society and dramatic improvements in cancer research, treatment, and early detection, millions of women are surviving breast cancer today. But that research takes money. Find out how ADC is taking part in the effort.

Which Clinician Scope Is Right for Me?

Our clinician-series Adscopes are our best-selling line of premium stethoscopes. Less bulky than their cardiology cousins, clinician scopes provide a balance of performance, comfort, and price point. ADC manufactures nine different clinician scopes in nearly 100 model options, each tailored to meet various requirements and preferences. Which one is right for you?

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.

Which Proscope™ is right for You?

Proscope is the brand for our line of institutional grade line of stethoscopes: economical diagnostic instruments designed for general exam use. Introduced over a quarter century ago, they remain the best-selling, most recognized brand in the acute care, extended care, and student markets. With seven distinct models and 21 colors, which one is right for you?

Which Cardiology Scope Is Right for Me?

ADC manufactures four different cardiology scopes, each tailored to different requirements and preferences. But first let’s dispel a bit of a misnomer: though the name suggests otherwise, ADC’s cardiology scopes are not just for cardiologists. Because they are all remarkably affordable, they're suitable for any professional that wants the very best in an acoustic scope.

Stethoscope Contamination Revisited

A couple months ago we penned the blog “What’s Growing on Your Stethoscope,” in an effort to remind our readers of the importance of regularly cleaning their scopes. And this past week major media outlets all reported what a number of studies have long ago confirmed: that the vast majority of scope chestpieces are vectors for a variety of bacteria and viruses.

Which Color Is Right For You?

"You can have any color you want so long as it's black," to paraphrase a quote from industrialist Henry Ford. It seems like only yesterday medical instrument colors were equally limited. Not so today. ADC's stethoscopes, sphygs, shears, and other core instruments are produced in a huge selection of colors and finishes, for departmental coding or simply personal preference.
