A properly conducted electrical leakage test is critical for TEE probe integrity and patient safety
CS Medical and BC Group International have partnered to provide a safe and effective method in conducting the electrical leakage test within the disinfectant reservoir of the TD 100® Automated TEE Probe Disinfector.
The ULT‑2000 Series is specifically designed to test the electrical safety of all types of diagnostic ultrasound transducers, totally independent of the ultrasound machine on which they are typically used. The integrity of the outer insulation barrier of the transducer as well as the capacitive leakage currents that exist are tested. The Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) recommends the structural and electrical integrity of the transducer be checked between each use, using an ultrasound transducer leakage tester.
BC Group’s ULT line of second generation "Soft Touch" transducer adapters, completely eliminates the possibility of costly damage. These adapters utilize the actual multi-pin mating connector for the ultrasound transducer to be tested. The transducer electrical connector is subjected to only the same level of insertion and locking force that is normally seen when the transducer is connected to the ultrasound machine. There are no other undesired mechanical forces on the transducer electrical connector, or the individual pins within it. Take steps to avoid unnecessary and costly transducer electrical connector damage as a result of using older generation adapters.
