NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire -10/11/11)- Healthnostics, Inc. (Pinksheets: HNSS.PK - News) is moving the launch of MicroFill-2160 to the 1st Quarter of 2012. The Company is delaying the launch to accommodate the inclusion of additional patentable design features. This time change will have a minor near term impact on the Company, and a significant positive impact beginning with the launch.
A Company spokesman said, "R&D involves many complexities, and the Company will not launch a product until it is ready for market. MicroFill-2160 is such a revolutionary product that its launch is expected to have global implications. It is literally a game-changer, and we want it to be as close to perfect as our best minds can make it."
The MicroFill-2160 is a state-of-the-art fill-and-seal machine designed to produce 2,160 medical pads per minute -- which is nearly three times faster than competitors' machines in use today -- and it is adaptable for use throughout the packaging industry, including cosmetics, household products, and personal hygiene.
To tap the expanded market, preliminary pricing of MicroFill-2160 has been set at $285,000, a competitive and profitable price point that is expected to generate significant sales.
MicroFill-2160 has a small footprint, requiring less floor space, fewer operators, and less energy consumption than competitor machines. The all stainless steel construction simultaneously decreases maintenance costs and reduces product exposure to impurities caused by corrosion and rust on other machines.
These speed, space, maintenance, energy, and labor benefits will significantly reduce manufacturing costs and increase product safety.
Design alterations are being incorporated into the Company's upcoming patent filing.
