Iontophoresis Units, Sweat Test

Definition : Electrical stimulators designed to induce sweating by the transdermal introduction of water-soluble electrolytic substances (e.g., pilocarpine) into the sweat glands using electric stimulus (iontophoresis). These stimulators typically consist of a direct-current generator and two electrodes connected to the generator by cords. After the stimulus is applied, the area where the positive electrode was located is cleaned with a sponge, and a filter pad or gauze covered with a chlorine-free, thermoplastic, self-sealing film is placed for about one hour to collect sweat. The pad is removed and weighed to determine if enough sweat was collected and sent to the clinical laboratory to analyze the chloride and/or sodium concentration. Transdermal iontophoresis sweat induction stimulators are used for diagnosis of cystic fibrosis in infants. Points-of-care analyzers combining the stimulator with the chemical analyzer are also available.

C & S Electronics Inc

We have been in the circuit assembly business now for 25 years (there was a transfer of ownership and name change in 1996). Our company started out doing only proprietary assembly. Then in 1980, we expanded the business so we could do thru-hole contract electronic assembly. This is now the lion's share of our business. In 1988, to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers, we added an SMT department to our capabilities.
