“The challenge with repairing the X7-2T was due to the absolutely incredible design of this probe. The tip of this probe is an engineering masterpiece with 2500 Active crystal elements in an array operating at 2-7Mhz. Using beamforming algorithms, the system is able to produce live 3D cardiac echo images during transesophageal exams. The challenge with such an amazing probe is repair. It doesn’t matter how careful users are, sooner or later the probe will get dropped or knocked and stop functioning. Probelogic will be one of the first repair centres in the world with the capabilities to repair the X7-2T.” Said Alan Barker, President and CEO of Probelogic Pty Ltd in a statement this afternoon.
Probelogic was founded in 2002 to meet the growing demand for better cost efficiencies in the diagnostic imaging sectors, of the Australasian healthcare environment.
Approximately 25% of transducers in clinical use, have some type of undetected fault or performance inhibiting structural defect.
Approximately 2 out of 3 transducers previously thought to be 'faulty', can be successfully repaired and returned to service.
Previously, the only option for the operators of diagnostic ultrasound equipment was to purchase a NEW transducer from the equipment manufacturer.
The average cost of Probelogic transducer repairs are only a fraction of the cost of a NEW transducer.
With over 80 years total experience in the field of medical diagnostic ultrasound and biomedical engineering, Probelogic's professional team will ensure the delivery of cost effective solutions to diagnostic ultrasound service providers.
Our focus is the provision of premium quality repairs and excellent customer service.
Probelogic intend to offer the new repair capabilities to the general market by mid year.
