Dunlee this week announced that its DA200P40+LMB CT replacement tube received FDA clearance.
The replacement CT tubes feature CoolGlide technology and is an alternative to liquid metal bearing replacement CT tubes for GE Revolution Evo and Optima 660 CT scanners.
Liquid metal bearing in CT tubes doesn’t create friction, which results in less wear, according to Dunlee. The new tube also features a quieter sound pattern for smooth operation.
“Liquid metal bearing technology has been a proprietary technology of the major medical equipment manufacturers for many years. With this new product release, we are offering a unique, cost-effective solution, based on the latest technology,” Jan Laheij, commercial lead of imaging components at Dunlee, a Philips company, said in a news release. “Imaging departments are under tremendous pressure to keep healthcare accessible and to reduce operating costs, and by providing long-lasting, high-quality alternative X-ray tubes we are supporting them in this journey.”
The company said it would begin deliveries by the end of this year in the U.S. and Europe.
