Medical Device Sterilization

Medical Device Sterilization What is Sterilization? Sterilization is the process of destroying microorganisms on a particular item. The sterility of an item is determined by the probability of the item being non-sterile. In other words, the probability of a single viable microorganism occurring on the item after the sterilization process. This probability is referred to as the sterility assurance level (SAL). Our sterile needle electrodes have a 10-6 SAL, or a one in a million chance of being...

Low Impedance Needles for aEEG in the NICU

Low Impedance Needles for aEEG in the NICU

The PRO-E5 needles can be used to monitor brain function in the NICU for a longer period of time than in traditional EEGs. In traditional EEGs (short 30-60 minute assessments), many high-risk neonates have no seizures, but they may within 8 to 24 hours. This makes longer-term brain monitoring in newborns invaluable. These needles have proven to be great for helping detect and monitor seizures in aEEG, and for monitoring the effects on the brain of different treatments in neonates.

Touch-Proof Electrode Connectors

Touch-Proof Electrode Connectors

The industry standard for most EEG and EMG needle electrodes, surface electrodes, and alligator clips is the 1.5mm “touch-proof safety socket.”  Such sockets can be plugged into almost any modern EEG, ERG, or EMG machine.  Technically, these 1.5 mm touchproof connectors fall under the DIN 42802-1 standard (under IEC 60601-1; sometimes written as DIN 42 802), which was adopted over 20 years ago to make electrodes safer.  There are no longer any exposed metal pins; all metal components are rece...

Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

Philosophy:   One of our favorite sayings is “Better, not cheaper.”  That means that we – like our customers – want  the highest quality product or solution for the job.  While many of our products are less expensive than those of our larger competitors, we believe that in medical devices, cheaper is often NOT better, and may even put patients and healthcare providers at greater risk in some instances. Another saying we have is “Helping, not hounding.”  In short, this means treating our custo...
