Acertara Acoustic Laboratories, an independent ultrasound acoustic measurement, testing, and calibration laboratory, has received a patent related to diagnostic ultrasound probe testing. United States patent no. 8,803,532 is the 15th awarded to Acertara for ultrasound and probe testing devices and the 40th given to the company overall.

Acertara’s engineering team developed the FirstCall ultrasound probe testing device 13 years ago at Sonora Medical Systems. The company recently introduced the Aureon and Active-Z devices, which each have several patents pending.

“It is our passion to once again redesign the probe testing market by creating disruptive technologies that match the very complex and sophisticated ultrasound probes being used today, including 2D matrix arrays. Our team is excited by the challenge of taking our test equipment product development legacy to the next level, and creating products that insure the safety and efficacy of ultrasound probes and systems,” said G. Wayne Moore, president and CEO of Acertara.
