Ensuring functional safety of medical devices

Ensuring functional safety of medical devices
As digitalisation and automation progress, electrical, electronic or programmable electronic systems (E/E/PES) are used increasingly in the field of safety applications. Growing complexity and connectivity bring new requirements for the functional safety of systems, with previously separate applications growing closer together. Richard Poate, Medical Health Services Manager at TÜV SÜD explains.

Thermoelectric cooling offers temperature control for incubators

Thermoelectric cooling offers temperature control for incubators
  Incubators are used for cell and tissue cultivation in hospital and laboratory settings. Accurate and precise control of temperature is important for cell growth, as excursions above or below the optimum mammalian body temperature of 37°C, by as little as 6°C, negatively impacts cell health and growth.

ESD testing method, for Class II input medical devices

ESD testing method, for Class II input medical devices
At the higher test level, any mistakes in the testing method become more pronounced, and may cause damage to the DUT (device under test). The more common error may made during testing at the high 15KV level, is failure to discharge accumulated charge voltage when testing Class II input medical devices, between subsequent ESD test events.

Ultra-fast digitiser aids cell sorting research

Ultra-fast digitiser aids cell sorting research
Cell sorting plays a fundamental role in molecular biology, pathology, immunology and virology research. It requires the ability to rapidly search through and sort out cells based on their unique chemical features and shapes. Conventional methods are limited in uncovering these differences, or are too labour or time intensive, or have to trade off between speed and accuracy.
