Bioconnect, a division of RF Industries (San Diego), introduces a new series of one-piece trunk cables for electrophysiology monitoring. The highly flexible cable assembly is designed to withstand most chemical sterilization and autoclave procedures. Cable durability and enhanced pull strength is achieved by extruding DuPont’s Kevlar® fibers parallel to the conductors during fabrication. The 20-cm lead wires are color coded, jacketed with thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), and terminated with shrouded, recessed gold DIN 2.0 mm pins (DIN 42802-2) to meet FDA safety requirements (21 CFR 828). Cable configurations include four, 10, 14, and 24 leads in several standard lengths.

For more information about the cables, call (800) 233-1728, or visit Bioconnect’s Web site at www.biocables.com.

Cardinal Health (Cleveland) has announced the availability of three systems designed to perform accurate, cost-effective quality assurance on diagnostic imaging systems. They include the AEC-6 system, Mamchex, and Radchex. The new automatic exposure control (AEC) technology measures all components of the x-ray beam, using an electronic cassette meter to analyze the light from the cassette’s intensifying screen instead of wasting film. The circuitry converts the light into a digital electrical signal that is fed to an onboard microprocessor for analysis. The information can then be sent to a computer or PDA for software analysis.

For more information about AEC-6, Mamchex, and Radchex systems contact Cardinal Health Radiation Management Services at (440) 248-9300, or visit the company’s Web site at www.cardinal.com/rms.
