May 11th, 2009
Rigel Medical (Booth 249) will be showcasing its new trolley case-based biomed field service kit Med-eKit at AAMI Expo (June 6-8th, Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore, MD).
The Med-eKit is used for the rapid testing of electrical safety and operation of medical devices and equipment used in hospitals, operating theatres and other facilities.
The biomed kit features hand-held analysers for electrical safety (Rigel 288), NIBP (Rigel BP-SIM) and SP02  (Rigel OXY-SIM), a battery operated patient simulator, ventilator tester, printer and barcode scanner and asset management software housed within a lightweight, impact and water resistant wheeled Pelican trolley case.
Foam inserts safely hold the instrumentation in place and provide protection during transportation, while the kit can be further customised to meet individual specifications with the inclusion of a laptop, multi-meter, temperature meter and power analyzer.
The kit is suitable for field service engineers requiring a flexible, easy-to-use and accurate solution for testing medical devices for both functionality and electrical safety to manufacturer?s specification or to a number of internationally accepted standards and guidelines such as: IEC 62353, IEC/EN60601-1, VDE 0751-1, AS/NZS 3551, AAMI, NFPA-99, MDA DB 9801-2006 etc.
Traceability is improved with the Rigel 288 as information can be downloaded into Med-eBase ? an easy-to-use asset management software. This enables the user to store and manage test results, email html test certificates to clients and schedule new work orders, which can then be fully uploaded into the Rigel 288?s large onboard memory.
Also on display will be the Rigel 377 high performance electrosurgical analyzer, used to improve the speed and ease of electrical safety testing of electrosurgical devices
The 377 features a range of easy-to-use custom settings, including a variety of test sequences and power distribution curves which make testing faster, easier and more accurate.
Compliant with IEC 60601-2-2, it is capable of checking to within high extremes of accuracy the correct and safe performance of electrosurgical devices during routine, type and production line testing.  A large array of internal resistors, ranging from 10 - 5100O in 10O steps, provide extremely accurate and detail power curves.
