How do your products work?
We have taken traditional hand-held devices that physicians rely on and rather than expecting them to depend on ambient light or battery-powered LED lighting, we’ve applied our expertise to integrate chemiluminescent lighting. The result is a safe and highly effective lighted device which provides the clinician with vivid illumination exactly where he/she needs it most.
How long does the illumination last?
All of our products are designed to luminesce for more than 15 minutes following activation. This is typically sufficient time for most procedures and examinations. As is common with chemiluminescent products, however, the intensity will begin to fade as towards the end of the illumination period.
Do the light cartridges emit heat?
No. There is no exothermic reaction involved. The light cartridges remain perfectly cool and safe.
Are the chemicals safe?
Absolutely. The chemicals in the light cartridge contain no substances that are hazardous or dangerous.
How do I discard the products after use?
There is nothing you need to disassemble or deactivate. Simply toss the entire device into your clinical waste container. No worries about chemicals or batteries.
Are Cyalume’s medical products FDA approved?
Cyalume Technologies, Inc. abides by the FDA’s regulations. We take great measures to be in complete compliance with all applicable regulatory requirements.
What quality certifications does Cyalume Technologies, Inc have?
ISO:9001, FDA registered, Six Sigma Certification, and GMP Certified.
What other supplies or parts do I need to buy?
Our products are designed and packaged to provide you with everything you need to use them. There are no batteries or rechargers needed.
Can your products be re-used?
No. The light cartridge is intended to be activated just the one time and the device discarded. Also, our products are designed to be single-use only to effectively eliminate any risk of cross-contamination. Cleaning a single-use product for re-use takes extra time and expense which contradicts the purpose, and you have better things to do.
What is the shelf-life of your products?
All of our products have at least a 2-year expiration date.
