Astro-Med, Inc.'s Grass Technologies Announces New Featherlite™ Disposable Electrode

WEST WARWICK, RI--(Marketwire - Jul 23, 2012) -  Astro-Med, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALOT) and Grass Technologies announce a new addition to the line of Genuine Grass Electrodes -- Featherlite Disposable Silver-Silver Chloride Recording Electrodes.

Like the world renowned Grass Gold Cup reusable electrodes, the Featherlite Disposable Electrode transmits low noise and clean signals for precise EEG measurements. These electrodes are a low cost solution for labs that require disposable electrodes to meet today's demands for eliminating the transmittal of infectious diseases.

The Featherlite Disposable Electrode features ultrasoft wire for increased patient comfort and easier application for the technician. Competing brands disposable lead wires are stiff which can lead to the electrode being pulled from the head with patient movement. The Featherlite Disposable Electrode is now available from stock in convenient bags of ten with color coded lead wires and the distinctive Grass molded connector, color coded in orange.
