Innovative solutions in “Proven Excellence” quality
At a modern production center, pre-owned medical systems – from x-ray, to computed tomography, to ultrasound – are refurbished, given the “Proven Excellence” quality seal, and then resold worldwide. Siemens Medical Solutions showcased this concept at the Medica 2005.
For more than five years, medical systems have been accepted for trade-in, refurbished, and resold. Most of these systems come from Siemens customers participating in upgrade programs. Customers include physicians in private practice as well as university hospitals with more than 1000 beds. Thanks to its wide range of system configuration capabilities as well as numerous service and financing offerings, RS can individually meet almost any customer requirement with its comprehensive portfolio – from ultrasound devices for routine diagnostics to biplanar cardiac cath labs for interventional diagnostics.
The Internet is an important component in the marketing strategy of RS and serves as an additional sales and communications channel. The website www.siemens.com/refurbished contains information regarding the entire RS portfolio, the “Proven Excellence” process, and contact persons. It also contains trade-in offers for pre-owned medical products.

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.
How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
