Lighthouse Imaging announces new endoscope system illumination
11 Nov 2010
Lighthouse Imaging Corporation has announced a new instrument
that enables hospital clinical engineering staff to quickly troubleshoot
endoscope system illumination and identify the true source of a problem.
The company's Endolume is a portable handheld device that measures
the luminous intensity of endoscopic system light sources as well as
light transmission through light cables and rigid or flexible
Lighthouse will be displaying the device at the MEDICA trade show in
Dusseldorf, Germany from November 17–20.
“We developed the Endolume with biomedical engineers and
technicians in mind,” says Dr Dennis Leiner, Lighthouse Imaging
Chief Technology Officer. “Endolume is simple to use and will enable
a biomed to quickly determine which component of an endoscopic
system is faulty, ensuring optimal performance, enhancing patient
safety and reducing unnecessary service and repair expenses.”
The Endolume instrument kit consists of a custom-designed
integrating sphere and light detector, precision light meter, and
adapters to connect with all endoscopic equipment common in medical
institutions. The meter displays directly in lumens. A rigid
carrying case is included.
Endolume will be on display and available for demonstration in
Hall 3, D15-2 at MEDICA in Dusseldorf, Germany during the week of
November 17-20, 2010.
