Allergy Awareness Week – 26th – 30th April

Welcome to allergy awareness week – a chance to raise awareness about all allergies whilst highlighting the difficulties people with allergies experience.

Allergy Awareness Week 2021

Here at Medi-Inn we would like to talk about Latex Allergies as we can provide an alternative to latex gloves for medical professionals.

We supply medical and hygiene gloves in many materials including latex, so it is extremely important that we are able to supply a suitable alternative.

Latex is a natural rubber made from a ‘milky’ substance found in plants which contains proteins which to some, could cause an allergic reaction. An allergy to latex is very complex because everyone’s experience is unique. Some people have severe reactions while others only experience mild reactions.

According to the NHS up to 5% of people could have an allergy although not all will show symptoms.

It’s important that the right gloves are chosen to carry out the work required and to prevent skin problems.

We suggest the nitrile glove as the go-to alternative to the latex glove.

Nitrile is a synthetic rubber made from a combination of materials. It has a higher puncture resistance than any other glove material as well as better chemical resistance.

Allergic reactions to nitrile are less common and reactions affect only the skin under the gloves.

So, the choice is yours….

A little poem in support of our highly effective Covid 19 Lateral Flow Test

The lateral flow test,
its certainly the quickest,
Results arrive the fastest,
Ease of use is easiest.

I had Covid pnemonias, no jest,
Hospitalized with all tests,
8 days of injections and the rest,
But I survived, now feel blessed,

So if your workforce is pressed,
Coronavirus must be addressed,
Lots time saved, well impressed,
To buy, just phone and request.

No need to be stressed,
Whether your Northeast or Midwest,
Protection I can attest,
I wish you all the best.

(c) 2021 Paul Boulton

Medi-Inn UK Helps Prevent Workplace Downtime with Covid-19 Lateral Flow Test

Wayne Dobson, MD at Medi-Inn (UK) Ltd

Some of Britain’s firms have prevented thousands of sick days and kept factories from downtime by rolling out Covid19 lateral flow tests (LFT) for staff.

Around one in three people do not show symptoms. So, testing those without symptoms is vital to breaking the chain of transmission.

LFTs have been very successful in finding positive cases from those employees who don’t show symptoms, as well as those most likely to transmit coronavirus.

Wayne Dobson, Managing Director at Medi-Inn UK said “Keeping employees safe is a priority and it’s great to see businesses are making an effort to prioritise their employees and clients during the coronavirus pandemic.

By using rapid testing, employers are providing peace of mind for employees working at home, and those able to work in the workplace.

Employees who have been in contact with Covid sufferers are allowed to keep going to work – rather than self-isolate – as long as they test negative each day for seven consecutive days.

Wayne, added: “Testing is key in the fight against COVID-19 and essential in making sure your workplace is safe and your staff feel confident to returning to work.”

The coronavirus testing kits are £14.99 + VAT per test however, discounts for bulk orders are available, so please contact Medi-Inn UK to discuss your requirements.

ASAP Innovations ensures Medi-Inn’s PPE supply to UK healthcare sector is maintained throughout pandemic 

Medi-Inn/ASAP

Certified PPE manufacturer and leading supplier of medical and hygiene consumables join forces to ensure the UK healthcare sector continues to have access to certified PPE

Following an unreliable and sporadic PPE supply during the beginning of the pandemic, supplier of medical and hygiene consumables, Medi-Inn partnered with ASAP Innovations, a leading manufacturer of medical PPE for the healthcare industries, to ensure dependable and trustworthy supply of critical equipment.

Throughout 2020, Medi-Inn – which manufactures and distributes medical and hygiene products to the UK healthcare sector – saw its supplies of medical gloves became sporadic and unreliable due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Many central governments were buying PPE directly from manufacturers and as a result, manufacturing companies were bypassing distribution companies, even suppliers they had worked with for years. At the same time, demand continued to increase throughout the summer of last year and Medi-Inn was in need of a reliable and certified PPE provider that could ensure it was able to keep serving its customers at this difficult time.

Wayne Dobson, Managing Director, Medi-Inn explains, “In 2020 we were approached by ASAP Innovations as it was seeking a glove distributor in the medical field. While the brand was fairly new to us, we were familiar with its impressive presence in Asia and everything we had heard about the manufacturer was very positive. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect as a partnership with ASAP Innovations meant we were able to continue supplying certified and high-quality PPE to our loyal and longstanding customer base, at a time when they needed our supplies the most.

“ASAP Innovations’ packaging stands out from other products on the market and it also incorporates a grading system so that the different glove types are easily identifiable, which ­– as far as we are aware – is fairly unique. In fact, this design feature of the products is something we leverage in our marketing activities as the colour coding certainly increases brand awareness. We have been particularly impressed with ASAP Innovations’ development initiatives and are looking forward to supplying its soon-to-be launched vitrile gloves and children’s face masks.

“Despite the challenging circumstances we find ourselves in, the support levels we have received from ASAP Innovations has been second to none which has made our partnership run that extra bit smoother. PPE is the sort of product where customers would complain if they had problems with the quality of the products and seeing as we have had no complaints about ASAP Innovations products, we have the reassurance that our customers are more than satisfied with its products.

“When ASAP agreed to fulfil our requirement for the rest of 2020 and up until October 2021 we were delighted, and I believe this is just the beginning of a long-term relationship where Medi-Inn can help establish the brand in the medical and hygiene sector in the UK. We are excited for what’s to come from our partnership with ASAP Innovations and we look forward to expanding business with the manufacturer in the months ahead,” Wayne concludes.

Sean Keller, Managing Director, ASAP Innovations adds: “We are delighted to have entered a partnership with a highly regarded supplier of medical and hygiene consumables to the UK healthcare sector. It goes without saying that healthcare workers have gone above and beyond to serve the public throughout what has been a very challenging year and we are very glad we have been able to continue supplying PPE to the people that need it the most, through our trusted partner, Medi-Inn. This is just the beginning of our partnership and we are thrilled to be able to continue providing certified PPE to the UK’s healthcare sector.”

Demand for lateral flow tests soar as employers fight to protect their businesses and workforce

Wayne Dobson, MD at Medi-Inn (UK) Ltd

Medi-Inn (UK) Ltd, the North East-based supplier of medical and hygiene consumables, has reported a surge in demand from businesses for lateral flow tests, as coronavirus cases continue to rise across the UK.

Since November, the Durham-based company, which has received tens of thousands of orders from businesses across the UK, has had to cope with shipments doubling on a weekly basis.

Whilst demand for lateral flow tests is highest in industries such as manufacturing, engineering, warehousing and transportation, Medi-Inn also notes that there has been significant demand from professional service firms keen to bolster their efforts in reducing the spread of the virus.

The test, which works in a similar fashion to a pregnancy test, can detect the presence of Covid-19 within just 15 minutes, giving employers a way to identify contagious staff before they risk passing it on to colleagues.

The lateral flow test is carried out on-site by taking samples from the nose and throat, with the result then displayed via a portable immunoassay screening cassette.

In addition to lateral flow tests, Medi-Inn supplies a wide range of consumables and has seen a significant increase in demand for PPE throughout the pandemic. It supplies items such as face masks and visors, latex, vinyl, nitrile, virtile and ecogloves; protective clothing, as well as disinfectants, antibacterial and coronavirus cleaning products.

Wayne Dobson, Managing Director at Medi-Inn, said: “To be able to play a part in helping businesses roll out effective testing programmes to protect their businesses and workforce is something we are really proud of.

“It’s reassuring to see so many businesses being responsible, purchasing PPE and tests to try and keep Covid-19 out of the workplace as much as possible.

“The fact we have been able to manage the high levels of demand for PPE and tests throughout the pandemic, because we have established strong and robust supply chains with reliable suppliers, is also something we are delighted with.”
