MedDetect Inc. introduces the MD-2000 Surgical Instrument Detection System designed to pinpoint and detect surgical instruments lost in soiled linen and waste bags.
According to the company, the MD-2000 Electro-magnetic Detector functions as an insurance back-up to a hospital’s surgical instrument tracking system, and hospitals purchasing the MD-2000 have demonstrated considerable savings in their lost instrument replacement budget. The system, which can pay for itself within a few months, incorporates a hands-free bag scanning technique with both an audible and visual alarm when instruments are detected.
