ProPact is a peracetic acid culture test kit for use in the Steris System 1 sterilization process. ProPact involves an improved, more distinctive color change from purple to yellow and offers results in only 24 hours (improved from 48 hours).
This signal tap box, part number 7B5311D0, is designed to tap a signal from a standard 10-lead EEG signal for strip chart recording, saving to an electronic file or “out of the room evaluation” such as a sleep lab. Lead length, wiring configurations, connectors, and labels can be customized.
The Legex 574 CNC coordinate measuring machine combines state-of-the-art design, electronics, computing, sensors, and materials to offer substantially enhanced performance while at the same time providing a significant price advantage.
The Excelsior EX is designed for applications ranging from engraving steel and stainless steel to machining small parts from plastics, aluminum, and brass where tight tolerance and accuracy are of paramount importance. Specifically, EX stands for extra low-pitch precision ball screws.
Acting FDA Commissioner Andrew von Eschenbach said the agency needs to go beyond the "incremental" improvements it has made in speeding up the review of device premarket applications under the Medical Device User Fee & Modernization Act (MDUFMA).
Medical device companies today struggle with the continual need for design innovation and faster time-to-market, while under pressure to comply with strict FDA regulations.
To help design engineers determine the proper installation torque for the fasteners in their product designs, Archetype Joint LCC is offering a free Torque & Tool Reference Card. This handy 4 3/4 x 3 1/2 in. reference card provides reference on installation torque values for fasteners 1/4 to 5/8 in.
Danaher Motion has introduced a new guide to Portescap Miniature Specialty Motors. The guide highlights the Portescap family of brushless DC motors, brushed DC coreless motors, and stepper motors, as well as its digital linear actuators, gearheads, and encoders.
The Open Prosthetics Project has adopted the Alibre Design 3D parametric modeler as the CAD standard for industry-wide collaboration. On the project’s website, medical product designers can post new ideas for prosthetic devices as CAD files, which are then available to the public free of charge.
