Acertara provides unique contract engineering services focused on the basic science and development of ultrasound medical imaging and related devices. Our research and development team has been involved in the creation and commercialization of more than 15 technologically intensive ultrasound systems, a number of various types of probes including the first probe with an integrated gyroscopic accelerometer, intraluminal ultrasound tipped catheters (IVUS), and the first after-market electronic array probe to receive FDA 510(k) clearance. Our team has also been at the forefront of designing and creating novel disruptive technologies and products such as the FirstCall probe testing device which is used in many OEM probe manufacturing facilities on a worldwide basis, as well as in hospitals, by ultrasound regulatory bodies, probe repair facilities, and in ultrasound research centers. We have worked with OEMs to develop and prototype applications specific probes, and then as a small scale manufacturer of those probes for the OEM. Our engineering team has co-authored more than 40 United States patents related to ultrasound. Acertara operates in an ISO9001:2008 and ISO13485 compliant environment and is accredited to ISO/IEC17025:2005. Acertara is a member of NEMA/MITA and is active on the MITA Working Group for High Frequency Ultrasound.
Our design team has significant expertise with Doppler, bubble detectors, ophthalmic ultrasound systems, and therapeutic prototype systems.
