United European Gastroenterology Week

Kea Dent had been planning to be in Geneva, but due to a very special event that clashes with UEGW (see below), she cannot be there to represent Dentsleeve directly. Our products will however be well displayed and represented on the stands of most manufacturers of manometric recording equipment.

Updated Information About Our Product Range

Just a reminder that earlier in 2002 we streamlined our web-site and print materials so that it is now more simple for our clients to identify products that meet their needs. These materials direct clients first to our higher volume products used for clinical diagnosis. These products have been given simplified descriptors.
We take pride in being able to offer our clients a very wide range of options, and in tailoring catheters to special designs. Our web-site and print materials are designed to lead clients through information about more specialised products also, if necessary.

Thank You For Your Support - Dentsleeve Is Growing!

There has been a substantial increase in the demand for our products in the last year. We are working very hard at dealing effectively with this welcome development by employing new staff and streamlining our processes.
Shortly we will be installing a new information system that, amongst other things, can keep closer track of manufacturing and inventory. Our current premises continue to serve us well as they were designed to allow for growth.

South Australian Business Woman of the Year - Kea Dent

Kea Dent entered, and was a finalist for both the South Australian Young Business Woman of the Year, and the more senior award, South Australian Business Woman of the Year, which was judged on September 20th. She won the senior award in recognition of her achievements in building Dentsleeve! We take great pride in her winning this, and of course, in her.
She travels to Brisbane to compete for the national award, Australian Business Woman of the Year against the award holders from the other six Australian states. The judging of this is around the time of UEGW, hence her inability to be in Geneva.

Slip Tubes for Passage of Dentsleeve Catheters Over Guidewire

The passage of catheters over guidewires is a rather specialised application, but for those who are interested - please read on. Friction between a guidewire and a large diameter guidewire channel in our silicone rubber catheters can make it very difficult to pass our catheters over a previously positioned guidewire. We now have a solution to this, in the form of thin-walled Teflon slip tubes that are passed into the guidewire channel.
For details, please download Dentsleeve Technical Note 6 - "Guidewire Assisted Passage of Catheters" from our web-site.

Christmas/Summer Holidays and Fishy Stories

Sorry - no new tall fishy stories but summer is coming, so who knows what is coming up? One thing is certain though, Dentsleeve will shut down between Christmas and New Year. Please put your orders in early to avoid competition with Santa and the beach!

With best wishes.

Kea Dent
