Buffalo Filter® has introduced RFID (radio frequency identification) technology into its PlumeSafe® Whisper Turbo Smoke Evacuation Systems. This technology provides constant communication tracking and control between the filter and the smoke evacuation system. RFID technology is built into each ViroSafe® filter. The invisible filter microchip interacts with the smoke evacuator to track and record filter life, usage history, and the product’s profile (LOT #, manufacture date, type, etc.). This results in the end-user being able to utilize multiple filters interchangeably. Additionally, Buffalo Filter’s new RFID microchip technology ensures compatibility with all electrical environments, including Isolation Transformer hospital circuits.
