Fluke Biomedical (Everett, WA, USA) RaySafe (Billdal, Sweden) and LANDAUER (Glenwood, IL, USA) demonstrated several new products at the Arab Health Exhibition and Congress held January 29 through February 1 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, UAE.

Fluke Biomedical, a provider of test and measurement equipment and services for the healthcare industry, exhibited its new VT650 and VT900 gas flow analyzers at the exhibition. Both are built with a compact, lightweight, all-in-one design, and feature one-channel, full-range airflow functionality that streamlines testing. They offer high accuracy and reliability for gas flow and respiratory medical equipment testing, including all types of ventilators, flow meters, pressure gauges, anesthesia and other machines. The VT650 is ideal for testing all types of ventilators and respiratory equipment, whereas the VT900 is ideal for technicians that also test anesthesia and flow meters needing ultra-low flow and ultra-low pressure.

LANDAUER, which focuses on radiation measurement and medical physics, showcased its microSTARii System, a compact, lightweight and portable reader that uses Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) technology for secondary verification of doses for patient therapy quality assurance. The system includes software to be used with LANDAUER's nanoDOT compact single point radiation measuring dosimeter and is ideal for placing anywhere on the surface of a patient's body or phantom for onsite verification of radiation dose in medical dosimetry applications.

Unfors RaySafe, a provider of X-ray quality assurance solutions to help protect patients and staff from unnecessary radiation, displayed the i3 Personal Dosimeter Radiation Monitoring System, which includes a set of RaySafe real-time personal radiation dosimeters, coupled with a display and software to provide a complete, immediate visual of radiation exposures using easy-to-read bar graphs. The instant feedback empowers medical staffs to learn and adapt their behavior on the go, minimizing unnecessary radiation exposure. Measurements are simultaneously stored for post-procedure analysis, facilitating continued learning and enabling comparisons over time, between labs and between users.

Also on display at Arab Health 2018 was RaySafe’s X2 Solo X-ray QA Measurement System, which speeds measurements by eliminating unnecessary steps, such as positioning the sensor, choosing a setting, or interpreting results. The sensors are orientation-independent and allow technicians to simply place the sensor in the X-ray beam and turn on the instrument. Everything else is automatic without any menus or special settings being required. Based on the same technology as the multi-modality RaySafe X2, the X2 Solo offers the same user-friendliness and performance to meet all quality assurance or service measurement needs for specific X-ray modalities.
