Singapore: Fluke Biomedical has launched new ProSim SPOT Light SpO2 Functional Tester, the first biomedical test tool in the market to achieve the RoHS E Environmentally-Friendly label. Short for Restriction of Use of Hazardous Substances, RoHS regulations are designed to limit or eliminate substances that are dangerous to the environment and to people.
The RoHS E label certifies the new SPOT Light SpO2 Functional Tester, which is designed to protect people and the environment from dangerous substances such as lead, mercury, and hexavalent chromium.
SPOT Light has already been heralded as the most environmental-friendly SpO2 test device available today. Mr Jamey Smart, product manager for Fluke Biomedical, explains: "Other products sneak a profit by using a disposable model: constantly churning through batteries and finger sensors. Disposing of batteries and electronics is terrible for the environment. Our aim was to design a tool that is both affordable and green: big savings, small footprint. The RoHS E environmental-friendly label affirms our commitment to that goal."
SPOT Light is lightweight and flexible with three custom presets specially designed to make it the fastest and easiest-to-use device on the market today for pulse oximeter functional testing. It sets up in seconds to send SpO2 saturation, heart rate, perfusion, transmission, artifact noise, and eight different manufactures custom r-curves to a pulse oximeter or patient monitor at precision plus or minus 1 % accuracy. A helpful LCD display and three simple buttons make it effortless to rapidly change parameters and view each signal output sent to the pulse oximeter at a glance.
An interchangeable, long-life battery ensures uninterrupted all-day operation without need to connect to a power supply.
