ProbeHunter to Develop Probe Adapters for Cephasonics

BBS Medical AB from Sweden will develop and market specialized ultrasound probe/transducer adapters that will allow users of Cephasonics systems to connect a variety of different probes from other companies to the Cephasonics system. As part of the relationship, BBS Medical AB will develop and market the adapters both directly as well as through Cephasonics.

“We are proud to announce that one of the leading programmable platforms within ultrasound research, Cephasonics, enter in to a co-operation with us at BBS Medical AB from Sweden as a developer of adapters to their system. This collaboration enables all universities and OEMs to quickly get support with adapters for their ultrasound research and development platforms,” BBS Medical AB/ProbeHunter Sweden CEO Björn Segall said. “Five years ago we released ProbeHunter, the real time test system, to verify the performance of ultrasound probes all brands. To the ProbeHunter system there are today approximately 50 different adapters to test all leading brands; GE, Philips, Siemens, Samsung, Toshiba/Canon, etc.
The new adapters to Cephasonics will support probes initially from Ultrasonix and over time a growing number of probes from other major ultrasound companies to be directly connected to the Cephasonics system.”

According to Randy Whiting, chief operating officer COO of Cephasonics, “this product will provide our users and developers a much greater array of ultrasound probes that can be used in research and development with the Cephasonics ultrasound engine. We’re very excited to work with BBS Medical and the ProbeHunter team to expand the ability of our platform to work with popular ultrasound probes.”
