#b#Saint Francis Joins Cancer Network#/b#
Saint Francis Medical Center in Trenton has joined the Jefferson Kimmel Cancer Center Network.
The Kimmel Network was established in 1993 to provide patients in its member hospitals access to the latest developments in cancer research, technology, and treatment. It also offers patients at member hospitals the opportunity to participate in clinical trials utilizing state-of-the-science approaches to preventing, diagnosing, and treating cancer.
“Saint Francis has a proven commitment to a high quality multidisciplinary approach to cancer care as evidenced by being an American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer approved cancer program since 1949,” says Leonard Gomella, clinical director of the network.
“Partnering with a National Cancer Institute designated cancer center allows us access to top-notch expertise and research that will benefit our patients,” says Jerry Jablonowski, Saint Francis president and CEO.
St. Francis provides diagnostic services and in-patient oncology care, medical oncology, outpatient surgery and chemotherapy, pain management, home care, and hospice services, as well as support and educational programs.

Systech International, 2540 Route 130, Cranbury Campus Suite 128, Cranbury 08512; 609-395-8400; fax, 609-395-0064. Robert M. DeJean, president and CEO. www.systech-tips.com.
Systech International, the Cranbury-based manufacturer of scanning and radio frequency identification devices, has announced the launch of e-Fingerprint, a product developed to combat pharmaceutical counterfeiting.
“e-Fingerprint will revolutionize the industry’s approach to combating counterfeiting,” says Robert DeJean, Systech CEO. “It is different than any other anti-counterfeit solution out there — by piggybacking on the existing serialization process, e-Fingerprint offers our customers an effective authentication solution at a fraction of the cost of deploying other covert or overt technologies.”
Serialization is the registration and labeling of pharmaceuticals with a distinctive number — usually a barcode — to document a product through its complete product lifecycle.
The e-Fingerprint system takes the visual noise generated by barcodes captured by pharmaceutical product inspection cameras during the serialization process, and then translates the image into a data string. The data string can then be sent to other locations — such as warehouses or pharmacies — where it can be used to authenticate products.
The system is similar to other visual authentication systems being used, but e-Fingerprint is the only one that translates the imagery into a data string rather than using the actual image.
Founded by DeJean in 1985, Systech was designed to help the pharmaceutical industry face growing pressures to become more effective in developing products while maintaining compliance with regulatory mandates through packaging.
DeJean is a longtime veteran in industrial automation for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries. Before Systech, DeJean served in various sales and management roles for General Electric, Texas Instruments, and Ribble Engineering. He holds a bachelor’s in engineering from Fairleigh Dickinson.
