Ultimate Medical Products LLC (and Condax LLC its parent company) has been very fortunate in being awarded many research grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Financial awards (Grants) from these institutions are prestigious and distinctive because the competition for this funding is very intense. The support is granted after a scrupulous and private review by experts.
Ordinarily these ‘merit’ grants for $100,000 – $1,000,000 are awarded for a 6 month- two year period, in Phases I and II. Ultimate Medical Products LLC and its parent company have received 9 such grants totally over $2 Million. Condax, the parent company and/or Leon Kassman, CEO, has also received 2 FDA 510(k) Market Acceptance designations and has been awarded a total of 18 US Patents with another 5 Provisional Patents filed for Patent. Pend. Approval.
Every Ultimate Medical Products LLC Condom + Applicator is tested under the FDA’s ASTM standards for ‘safe-functioning’. Because an already approved latex condom is applied to the plastic (polyethylene) Applicator, the FDA requires that the condom to be ‘re-tested’ again. Therefore, in large batches, before sale, condom are removed from the applicator and re-submitted for a second full round of FDA testing. No other Condom sold in the United States is tested like this. Ultimate Condom Applicators are, therefore, truly ‘safe-for-use’.
