Acertara Receives Additional Two United States Patents for Test Equipment

LONGMONT, CO December 7, 2016 Acertara, an independent ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited medical ultrasound acoustic measurement, testing, and calibration laboratory, and ISO13485:2003 certified probe repair and new product development facility announces that it has been awarded United States patent #9,513,237 for its probe testing system, Active-Z and United States patent #9,525,257 for its Electrical Leakage Omni-Connector, Accept.

Active-Z is a portable, point of care test device for ultrasound probes that enables field personnel and sonographers to verify the proper functioning of their probe. By measuring the complex impedance of a probe the Active-Z user can quickly triage if a probe can be repaired or needs to be replaced.

The Omni-connector, Accept is part of an transducer electrical leakage suite. Accept’s unique design will connect to virtually every ultrasound manufacturer and probe model eliminating the need for hospital’s to purchase multiple adapters. Accept was introduced to assist hospitals with accreditation under the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission’s requirements to test probes for electrical leakage before every case.

Commenting on the patents, G. Wayne Moore, President and CEO of Acertara, said: “Our approach has always been to develop novel test devices that position our customers to provide safe and effective care in an environment that controls costs. The Active-Z and Accept patents are examples of that approach that will enable better patient outcomes.” The research and development team at Acertara has been awarded more than 45 United States and International patents ranging from 3D ultrasound products to devices that deliver super-saturated levels of oxygen to myocardial tissue of heart attack patients.
