Thanks to Block Scientific, I was able to procure the re-certified Bayer DCA 2000+ without hassles and get the lab back in operation. The
device works perfectly and I look forward to doing more business with Block Scientific.

Benzodiazepines are among the most commonly prescribed medications in the United States, being used in the treatment of anxiety, pain relief, sedation, and as anti-convulsants.
Although more than 2,000 different benzodiazepines have been produced, only about 15 are currently FDA 510(k) cleared in the United States. They are usually classified by how long their effects last.
Abuse Potential: Benzodiazepines have a high potential for abuse, especially when used with other depressants. This abuse is partially related to the toxic effects that they produce and also to their widespread availability. They can be chronically abused or, as seen more commonly in hospital emergency departments, intentionally or accidentally taken in overdose. Death and serious illness rarely result from benzodiazepine abuse alone; however, they are frequently taken with either alcohol or other medications.
