Local firm launches surgical tool tracker

Franklin-based Censis Technologies Inc. today announced the launch of a ScopeTrac — a technology system for endoscope tracking and data management. The system, which uses RFID and scanning, is designed to help prevent infections by helping clinicians keep track of each piece of surgical equipment and make sure they're properly cleaned and handled. Censis Technologies' other Censitrac surgical instrument tracking systems are currently in use in about 250 hospitals in the U.S., Canada and Australia.
