MCJ, Inc. of Rockford has donated a state-of-the-art Pupillometer to Rockford Rescue Mission. The EyeCheck Pupillometer has been forensically and medically reviewed as a proven method for drug screening.
This advanced technology is a non-invasive method of drug screening that allows individuals to be tested without bodily fluid contact. The EyeCheck provides more dignity for the person being screened while producing immediate pass/fail results.
Until now, the EyeCheck pupillometer was only being used by the court system, law enforcement, private industry and the military. Rockford Rescue Mission is the first non-profit in the area to have this advanced method of drug screening.
Thanks to Judi Gerstein and John Dal Santo, owners of MCJ Inc., the Mission will be able to provide drug screenings as needed. This high-tech piece of equipment will allow us to treat our guests with more dignity while providing effective and accurate screening. The cost savings of purchasing testing kits will enable us to support other vital Mission programs. We are deeply grateful to Judi Gerstein and John Dal Santo for this wonderful gift, said Executive Director Sherry Pitney.
