Published: Nov 11, 2010
DENMEAD, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Microsulis reports that the groundbreaking Accu2i pMTA system for destroying unwanted tissue and used in the treatment of liver and other cancers now carries an impressive range of electrical safety standards. The Accu2i is CE-marked and carries FDA 510(k) clearance and so is cleared for electrical safety and performance with the internationally recognised standard IEC 60601-1 for electrical safety. In addition, the system is currently cleared with the international safety standard IEC 60601-2-6, which is a particular requirement for the safety and specification for microwave therapy equipment. This is especially important for such a high powered device as the Accu2i. Furthermore, the Accu2i carries IEC 60601-2-2 – a requirement for the safety of high frequency surgical equipment including microwave systems, and Microsulis is on track toward applying the ETL mark by the end of the year.
