"This acknowledgement by the FDA further validates the stringent quality and safety standards we have always engineered into our products," stated Howard Schilling, PureLink's Director of Sales. "For our customers in the medical and healthcare vertical, this officially authorizes the PureMedia line for use in patient-facing environments such as operating rooms, ICUs, and long-term patient care facilities," he added.
The FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) compiles an annual Electronic Product Report that accesses and categorizes the radiation safety performance standards of devices from manufacturers that are submitted for approval. Certification means that the manufacturer of a radiation-emitting electronic product states that the product complies with an applicable FDA performance standard and does not emit hazardous and unnecessary radiation. Examples of non-medical electronic products covered by these standards include television receivers and monitors, video displays, entertainment lasers, cordless and cellular telephones, laser CD players and other related equipment and devices.
