Electrosurgery units are often known as diathermy testers and use high frequency electric currents to generate heat, which is then used by surgeons to cut or coagulate human tissue. The correct performance of electrosurgery units is vital in ensuring patient safety and management of the risks related to the use of high frequency electrical currents. Biomedical engineers are therefore required to carry out regular testing of these devices in accordance with IEC 60601-2-2 and use electrosurgery testers as part of this process.
Calibrationhouse in partnership with Seaward Group brand partner Rigel Medical is one of the world leaders in electrical safety and performance testing of medical devices. Development and in-service testing of our very own electrosurgery analyser, the Rigel Uni-Therm has led to the evolution of robust procedures and test equipment to ensure everything is in place to accurately calibrate electrosurgery analysers of any make and model.
The importance of regular calibration of electrosurgery analysers cannot be stressed highly enough, with most manufacturers including Rigel Medical recommending calibration periods of between 6 and 12 months. Calibrationhouse offers electrosurgery analyser calibration either onsite at a customer's premises or via rapid turnaround laboratory based service, most calibrations are however now performed onsite as this minimises the risk of damage during transit and equipment downtime.
Electrosurgery analyser calibration is offered with traceable to national standards on any make or model of device.
