Urocare has completed the data enty of it's products into the FDA UDI system kown as AccessGUDID. You can use AccessGUDID to search for specific medical devices or download all the GUDID data at once, and you do not need an account to use AccessGUDID. The device information on this website is the most recent submitted to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is updated daily.

05/01/2018

Urocare releases an update to it's 2018 Product Catalog. The complete catalog is posted online as well as individual pages so you can download only what you need.

What's new in May? Due to the US FDA implementation of a Universal Device Identification (UDI) numbering system and coressonding database AccessGUDID, some changes in the way Urocare has assigned it product numbers had to be made. The UDI system bases it's information on what's called the base unit otherwise known as the smallest number of units sold by either the manufacturer or any of it's distributors. Items only sold by Urocare in case quantities such as our Uro-Safe® disposable vinyl leg bags, Uro-Cath® and Uro-Con® male external catheters etc. will be affected by this change.

For example, item/ref #510235 male external catheter is only sold by Urocare in case quantities of 50 units so it will now have a case item/ref number of #51023550. If a distributor/retailer chooses to breakdown the case and sell the individual catheters, they can do so under the base item No. of #510235.

Another example, item #76320 Uro-Safe vinyl leg bag is only sold by the case of 12 units so it will have a new item number of #7632012. If a distributor/retailer chooses to break-down the case and sell the bags individually, they can do so under the base item No. of #76320.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact one of our Customer Service Team members ~ the Urocare Staff.

06/15/2017

Urocare has begun to implement the new FDA UDI "Unique Device Identification" system onto it's products to adequately identify medical devices through their distribution and use. When fully implemented, the label of most devices will include a unique device identifier (UDI) in human and machine-readable form.

Manufacturers must also submit certain information about each device to FDA's Global Unique Device Identification Database (GUDID). The public can search and download information from the GUDID at AccessGUDID.

The UDI system, which the FDA will phase in over several years, offers a number of benefits that will be more fully realized with the adoption and integration of UDIs into the health care delivery system. UDI implementation will improve patient safety, modernize device postmarket surveillance, and facilitate medical device innovation.

If you have a question or concern you'd like to share with the UDI team, please contact the FDA UDI Help Desk.

Latex does have a distinct odor which varies from batch to batch. At times, usually during the hot summer months, this odor can become strong. Urocare has listened to requests to reduce or eliminate this odor. Since this odor can not be entirely eliminated at present, Urocare is developing and testing latex bags that are scented which greatly reduces the odor to minimal levels that are virtually undetectable leaving behind only a mild fresh scent. If this process is successful, it may be applied to all our latex products. As we progress with our prototype testing phase, more information will be posted here.

We don't give odor a chance! By adding a special odor control barrier to the inside and outside of our reusable latex leg bags and urinal sheaths, Urocare's latex appliances are ODOR-FREE, not just odor-resistant; thereby preventing embarrassing odor problems before they start.

In the original anti-reflux valve inception, the valve lips were designed in a "flat" fashion similar to those found in other flutter valves; however, this presented a problem during the molding process where the lips were always open. To resolve this issue, clips were added to each side of the lips to keep them closed. Over the years, Urocare has listened to requests from it's customers to increase flow rates on its well known Little Red Valve™ the anti-reflux valve found in its reusable and disposable urine collection appliances which has undergone three major design changes since 1975.

The growing requirement to translate product labeling highlights the importance of using symbols. The use of internationally recognized symbols and marks is the only effective way to meet the requirements of a global market. To that end Urocare has adopted a universal standard for reference symbols used in the labeling its products (EN 980). Look for these symbols on all future products.
