COVID Response & Emergency Preparedness
In response to COVID-19, we at Hometa are resolved to provide our products to those most affected by the pandemic. We are proud to say that both our DripAssist device and IV bags have come to the aid of healthcare facilities whose operations were heavily disrupted by the pandemic.
The DripAssist Supplemental Infusion Rate Monitor is an electronic drop counter that attaches to a gravity set and monitors drops continually with 99% accuracy. DripAssist has been integral in helping clinicians who have been forced to resort to gravity infusion when they couldn’t obtain IV pumps or corresponding tubing sets due to supply chain interruptions incurred by COVID-19.
DripAssist can also be added to aid in the administration of COVID19 mAb therapies like Eli Lilly’s Bamlanivimab/Etesevimab, and Regeneron’s Casirivimab/Imdevimab.
Similarly, we have been able to supply IV bags to facilities who cannot obtain product from their primary suppliers due to allocations and shortages incurred not only by COVID-19, but also by the hurricanes that devastated Puerto Rico in the fall of 2020. Our IV bags are equipped with ports for both IV prep and admin.
