Ultrasound Probes – OEM or Non-OEM?

Do you know if your ultrasound probe is OEM or No-OEM?

For good quality imaging results, it is essential that probes operate correctly when connected to the ultrasound system, and unless there is suitable documented evidence to prove otherwise, Non-OEM probes don’t do this.

As specialists in ultrasound, Multi-Medix inspects and tests hundreds of ultrasound probes each week, and our quality system procedures enable us to identify the differences between OEM and Non-OEM probes, ensuring we don’t pass sub-standard probes onto our clients.  Some differences are easy to see, to the trained eye, whilst other differences require specialist test equipment and procedures to be identified.
