The Company's solutions have undergone adoption in major industry vertical markets. These include education, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, and retail. Their solution represents an innovative approach to wireless networking that uses virtualization technology to create an intelligent and self-monitoring wireless network. It also enables enterprises to migrate their business-critical applications from wired networks to wireless networks, and become all-wireless enterprises.

On April 12, 2010, Meru Networks, Inc. announced that St. Joseph Health System deployed Meru Networks Wireless LAN (WLAN) solutions for implementing a Healthcare Information System (HCIS). This includes Meditech bedside patient registration, medication administration carts (BMV), voice applications for nurse call systems, and asset tracking throughout their network of hospitals and healthcare clinics.

Columbia Laboratories Inc. (CBRX)

Recently, Greenbackers reported on Columbia Laboratories Inc. (CBRX), and we choose to highlight the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Columbia Laboratories Inc. is a specialty pharmaceutical company that trades on the NASDAQ Global Market. The Company develops and commercializes innovative products for women's healthcare and endocrine-related conditions. Their FDA-approved products include formulations that treat infertility, menstrual irregularities, and hormonal deficiencies. Columbia Laboratories Inc. has their headquarters in Livingston, New Jersey. They became a Delaware corporation in 1986.

The Company's products utilize their proprietary Bioadhesive Delivery System (BDS). This system takes advantage of the principle of bioadhesion to administer medication. This technology can deliver numerous types of compounds, including hormones and peptides. This provides many internal and licensing product development opportunities for Columbia Laboratories Inc.

Polycarbophil is the key ingredient in the BDS. It is a non-immunogenic, hypoallergenic, bioadhesive polymer.  Polycarbophil bonds to the cells of the body's mucosal surfaces upon administration. In their vaginally administered products, it bonds to the vaginal epithelial cells. In the Company's buccal products, it adheres to the cells of the oral mucosa. Once in place, the BDS releases the active drug in a controlled and sustained manner until it undergoes discharge upon normal cell turnover. This occurs every three to five days for the vaginal epithelium and up to every 24 hours for the oral mucosa.

Columbia Laboratories Inc. is concentrating on maximizing the return from their progesterone products in the U. S. This is via direct promotion to reproductive endocrinologists, obstetricians, and gynecologists. They have entered into licensing agreements with marketing partners to sell their products in markets globally, and in U.S. markets that fall outside their strategic focus.

The Company's Progesterone Products are CRINONE® and PROCHIEVE® progesterone gels. These are two brands of their specially formulated, sustained-release bioadhesive natural progesterone gel. The product undergoes application into the vagina where it adheres to the vaginal walls to be absorbed directly where required. This route of application avoids the local pain and skin abscesses associated with intramuscular injections of progesterone.

CRINONE 8% (progesterone gel) and PROCHIEVE 8% (progesterone gel) are for supplementation or replacement of progesterone as part of an assisted reproductive technology treatment. These are for infertile women with progesterone deficiency and for the treatment of secondary amenorrhea.

Columbia Laboratories Inc. also has their STRIANT® (testosterone buccal system). This is for a deficiency or absence of endogenous testosterone associated with hypogonadism in men.

Columbia Laboratories Inc. (CBRX) closed Tuesday's trading session at $1.07 up 1.90 percent. Volume was 118,941.

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) 

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV). Today, National Automation Services, Inc. closed trading at $0.14, which was up 16.67 percent. Their volume today was 92,075 shares. 

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) announced they have obtained an equity financing commitment of $5 Million from Ascendiant Capital Group, LLC, a private equity firm, and its affiliate, Ascendiant Equity Partners, LLC.

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) is a public holding company focused on designing, engineering, installing and maintaining automated control systems for such business applications as waste water treatment, water treatment, airport security, bottling plants, power plants, metals, mining, breweries, food processing, tire making, textiles, plastics and nearly all production activities.  

Dominant players in the $500 Billion national and international automation controls market include Siemens, Honeywell, Fisher Controls, Johnson Controls and others. In addition to the multi-nationals, it has been estimated that there could be as many as 300 local and regional firms providing automation control services. In general, these companies have an edge on the larger behemoths because they can better respond to the needs of local business and municipalities.  

Unfortunately, for these smaller companies, they compete in a limited market space, have stunted growth prospects and have no way of monetizing their asset value. NAS aims to capitalize on this condition by acquiring and integrating the strongest local and regional players into a new organization that would allow for the synergies and efficiencies of a national company while keeping the competitive advantages of decentralized management and service.  

Of the 300 local and regional automation companies, 42 meet the company’s acquisition criteria; 11 of which have been targeted for acquisition over the next two years. NAS projects year-end 2010 revenues of more than $47 Million and year-end 2011 revenues of over $140 Million predicated on meeting its targeted acquisition schedule. With a solid business plan in place, NAS has a firm foundation to generate strong cash flow and increase shareholder value over the long-term. Disclaimer

Massage therapy has been shown to reduce blood pressure, reduce fatigue, increase alertness and relieve muscle and joint aches and pains. In addition, it has been shown to improve employees’ productivity, problem solving and creative thinking.

The benefits of a product like the SpaCapsule are becoming evident to companies around the world, both large and small. SpaCapsule users say that they feel an improvement in both their morale and attitudes. With the day-to-day stress level lowered, it makes for a more pleasant and productive work environment. Needing very little space and requiring little maintenance, the SpaCapsule is always available 24/7.

It’s of little wonder that a growing number of many major corporations are offering massage services, such as with SpaCapsule, to their employees. The list of companies offering such services to their employees include: Coca Cola, IBM, Delta Airlines, SunTrust Bank, Pepsico, Citibank, Eharmony.com, Sony-Ericcson, Comcast, CBS, GE and the American Cancer Society. With its unique SpaCapsule product, Simulated Environment Concepts is set to profit from this growing trend.

Newport Digital Technologies, Inc. (NPDT) Goes To School

Newport Digital Technologies Inc., through its partnership with two premier technology incubators, both based in Taiwan: the Institute for Information Industry (III) and the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), has developed a rich portfolio of competencies, based upon the latest achievements in wireless broadband networking. But none has a greater potential for social change than eLearning, the new approach to school and training, featuring next-generation WiMAX broadband wireless technology.

With the pace of new discoveries increasing daily, and the participation of more and more countries in an information-based global economy, the need for better ways of transferring knowledge has never been greater. Traditional models of education, based upon individual classrooms and instructors, are proving too labor-intensive to be affordable. In addition, continuing changes in what must be learned requires education to be a lifelong process, available to all age groups in a highly flexible form.

Wireless broadband technology, together with the emergence of low-cost personal computing and innovative online educational applications, has opened up new ways to meet this need, a worldwide market that has already grown to over $50 billion. The solution is e-Learning, enabled by developments in Internet and multimedia technologies. It’s an approach that offers clear and major benefits, from the highest governmental and organizational levels down to the individual learner.

• First of all, it makes training and education affordable, regardless of who is footing the bill. Instead of addressing a few dozen students, the best instructors will be able to reach tens of thousands. The cost per student will be a small fraction of the traditional model, making it available to a larger number of people in this country and around the world.

• Education will also be more flexible, geographically and otherwise. People living in areas with a poor educational infrastructure will now have access to many of the same educational opportunities as anyone else. Workers in a remote field environment can be trained on site. Individuals unable to easily leave their home, or with a difficult time schedule, can still be reached. People with special educational needs can have their requirements met. Although some may question the loss of physical interaction between student and teacher, the compensation will be a much more dynamic electronic interaction, providing more effective visual aids and information linkage.

• A side benefit of eLearning is a smaller impact on the environment. Extensive travel to and from physical centers of education, with all of the associated pollution, will be replaced with logging in, requiring only a small amount of power per user. Even paper usage will be reduced, as information is increasingly displayed electronically.

Waytronx (WYNX) Announces Retirement of $7.2M in Debt

William Clough, Waytronx’s president and CEO, said the actions of the prior owner of CUI and the two investors, puts the company in a better financial position to move forward with its operations, product offerings and goals.

Clough said the company plans on several forms of organic expansion and actions to improve its position in the market. “We intend to continue our efforts to expand our product lines; form strategic alliances with companies like Power One and GL Industrial Services; increase our market share; and organically grow our business. In short, we will continue to earn the confidence and trust the elimination of this debt represents,” Clough concluded.
