BioDrain Expands Presence in Mid-Atlantic Region, Installs STREAMWAY® System at Riva Road Surgical Center in Maryland

Company Breaks Into National Network of Ambulatory Surgical Centers

MINNEAPOLIS, April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – BioDrain Medical, Inc. (BIOR) (the “Company”), producer of the FDA approved STREAMWAY® System for automated, direct-to-drain surgical fluid disposal that reduces the risk of exposure to hazardous waste, announced today that the Company has installed its STREAMWAY® System at the Riva Road Surgical Center in Maryland. The surgical center is part of the SurgCenter Development network, an organization that partners with local surgeons to create physician-owned and operated ambulatory surgical centers (ASC).

The FDA-approved STREAMWAY® System is designed to improve safety and efficiency in the operating room by safely and seamlessly managing surgical fluid waste disposal with its direct-to-drain technology. The STREAMWAY® System virtually eliminates certain operating room workers’ exposure to blood, irrigation fluid and other potentially infectious fluids found in the surgical environment while dramatically decreasing costs to dispose of surgical waste. The STREAMWAY® System is a stationary system designed to be installed into each surgical room that is hooked into a hospital’s existing drain and vacuum system.

This sale to the Riva Road Surgical Center came on the heels of a successful installation in New Jersey as well as additional trials running in hospitals throughout the United States. The Company anticipates seeking international expansion later this year.

“The STREAMWAY® System, and the Riva Road Surgical Center installation marks an important entry into the national network of SurgCenter Development facilities,” said Josh Kornberg, Chief Executive Officer at BioDrain Medical. “Healthcare groups, particularly surgical centers, are proactively looking for a reliable and cost-effective solution for their fluid management requirements.  This is the second sale we’ve had in less than one week; we’re extremely pleased at the rapid uptick in awareness and desire for our product and we strongly believe that the STREAMWAY® System is a great solution for healthcare facilities.”

“Manual collection and removal of fluid from the operating room is expensive, labor intensive and makes our team susceptible to the risk of bloodborne pathogen exposure. Our recent installation of the STREAMWAY® System addresses all of these issues with one solution,” said Karen Albright, a nurse administrator at the Riva Road Surgical Center. ”The closed system greatly reduces staff exposure to infection and disease, and the technology is simple to use, easy to install, and impressively cost effective.  Additionally, the wall mount feature eliminates the need for storage or a docking station, which other fluid management systems require.  Overall we are very pleased with our decision to adopt the STREAMWAY® System; we believe the direct-to-drain solution will revolutionize operating room safety and efficiency in our surgical center.”

The STREAMWAY® System addresses a number of important healthcare issues: it reduces overhead costs to hospitals and surgical centers, streamlines the efficiency of the operating room and saves healthcare personnel time, energy and the fear of contracting an infectious disease from the far less sterile and more difficult to use fluid disposal canisters.  BioDrain plans to continue to expand into more hospitals and surgical centers throughout 2013.
