Attest Super Rapid Readout Biological Indicator System
In early July, 3M announced the availability of the new 3M Attest Super Rapid Readout Biological Indicator System for steam sterilization cycles, which offers biological confirmation of a successful instrument sterilization process up to three times faster than previously possible.
The system yields results for pre-vacuum steam sterilization cycles in one hour instead of three hours. For gravity-displacement steam sterilization cycles, results are two times faster, available in just 30 minutes. Comparisons are based on the performance of the 3M Attest Rapid Readout Biological Indicator products.
DRX 2530C detector
Carestream Health has announced FDA clearance for a wireless digital radiography detector designed to offer high quality, low dose X-ray exams for pediatric, orthopaedic and general radiology applications. The new detector is expected to begin shipping in the third quarter of 2013.
In orthopaedic and general radiographic imaging, its smaller size and light weight aids in positioning for tabletop exams such as knee, elbow, skull and other exams that may require a patient to hold the detector or require a smaller field of view.
The DRX 2530C detector can be used with any member of the DRX family of room-based and mobile imaging systems.
