March26Rigel UniThermField engineers at Olympus KeyMed Ltd have turned to Rigel Medical’s Uni-Therm analyzer for improved medical device compliance and safety testing.

For more than 90 years Olympus has been designing endoscopy and microscopy products and medical and industrial equipment. It uses the advanced Uni-Therm for in-service performance testing of its electrosurgical devices, which use electricity to produce enough heat to enable surgeons to cut body tissue or seal bleeding vessels during operations.

According to Rigel, 20 Uni-Therm units have been specified to allow automation of the performance testing of Olympus’ electrosurgical equipment. The new testers have enabled engineers working at sites across the UK to accurately measure the performance of each device and complete high frequency leakage, high current, power distribution, and patient return plate alarm testing.

Compliant with IEC 60601, the Uni-Therm verifies and calibrates the electrosurgical equipment while guiding the engineer through all test procedures automatically and safely.
