Medical and Surgical Industry Applications
From cardiology to gastroenterology, there are numerous medical and surgical applications for ultrasound probes – For these purposes, general sterile procedures require that the probe is protected with a sterile cover. KEP ultrasound probe covers provide clear, distortion-free imaging solutions while aiding in the prevention of cross-contamination during these procedures.
Cardiology – We manufacture covers for ultrasound probes that are used in cardiology and during heart surgery.
Gynecology – Probes are used to provide better images for use in diagnosis. Our covers allow them to get into close proximity to the target organs without sterilization concerns.
Urology – Urology ultrasound transducers require sterile covers in order for the proper procedures to be performed.
Radiology – The X-ray department carries out ultrasound procedures to perform biopsies, using a wide range of probes which require a sterile cover.
Intra-operative applications – During surgical interventions ultrasound probes are used to image organs and must not risk any concerns for contamination.
Gastroenterology – For the imaging of stomach, intestinal wall, pancreas, gallbladder, and other anatomy, gastroendoscopes with a sterile, covered ultrasound tip are used.
Consistent Quality and Fit
Our compounds offer consistent quality – Providing optimum fit and protection for your industry’s ultrasound probes and transducers. The cost of cheap quality ultrasound probe covers is high – If they are improperly fitting they can risk coming off into patients during procedures, risking cross-contamination which could then lead to serious medical problems.
We inspect every product that comes out of production for consistency and quality to ensure our customers’ products are ideal for their customers and their patients – not to mention their bottom line.
Ultrasound Probe Cover Compounds
Our ultrasound probe covers are available in a wide range of quality latex and nonlatex compounds that provide the strength and flexibility needed for many different applications in the medical and surgical industries. Our non-latex compounds are recommended for patients and professionals with latex protein sensitivities.
We work alongside our customers to ensure their ultrasound probe cover orders fulfill all of their needs. Plus, we offer value-added conveniences like design, custom packaging, labeling, and inventory management to ensure that your products fit your exacting specifications.
