EVERETT, WASHINGTON - An infant’s first days can be their most critical, which is why Fluke Biomedical developed the INCU II Incubator/Radiant Warmer Analyzer to provide the functionality biomedical technicians need to easily test and verify the performance and safety of infant incubators, transport incubators, and radiant warmers.
“At-risk infants can’t communicate that they’re uncomfortable – too hot or cold. That’s why it’s essential to verify infant incubators are performing according to manufacturers and industry standards,” explains Eric Conley, General Manager for Fluke Biomedical. “The INCU II is an all-in-one analyzer that supports IEC standards to accurately assess the environmental parameters of infant incubators and radiant warmers.”
Weighing just 3 pounds, the compact INCU II can simultaneously measure relative humidity, airflow, sound, and six independent temperature points. Its color-coded probes make it easy to switch between the sensors for testing temperature in an incubator or the five pucks for verifying the environment of a radiant warmer.
The large LCD screen of the INCU II displays real-time test results, along with pass/fail indicators. Once an incubator reaches a steady temperature, it takes just 15 minutes to conduct a sequence of tests, which can be customized and stored in the analyzer. Test data can then be sent and monitored from a computer, using a USB cable or the INCU II wirelessly*.
“The INCU II offers the portability and intuitive interface biomedical technicians’ desire with the advanced technologies to accurately test commonly available incubators and radiant warmers,” explains Ashton Solecki, INCU II Product Manager. “In addition, the INCU II comes with a placement pad that helps technicians learn how to correctly place the temperature sensors and pucks.”
Along with complying with the latest global industry standards, including IEC 60601-2-19 (incubator), IEC 60601-2-20 (transport incubator), and IEC 60601-2-21 (radiant warmer), the INCU II supports China sound standards (Class II).
The INCU II is the next generation INCU from Fluke Biomedical, and will be offered worldwide.
*Wireless capabilities will be available worldwide, starting January 26, 2016.
