Intelligent Light guide cable tester
The only intelligent light guide cable tester that ensures the quality of your light guide cables and fits all brands and types.
Extend the lifespan of your cables, endoscopes and light source
A bad light guide cable results in exponential wear and tear of the cable, endoscope and light source.
With good cables, less intensity from your light source is needed to properly illuminate during surgery. This means less strain on the light fibers in both cable and endoscope, extending the lifespan of your cables, endoscopes and light sources.
Never a broken light guide cable
in your OR again
With GuideControl in your workflow, testing every cable before use will make sure you will never have a broken light guide cable in your OR again.
lifespan by 25%
A bad light guide cable results in exponential wear and tear of the cable, endoscope and light source. When working with good cables, less brightness is needed from your light source, putting less strain on the light fibers both your cable and endoscope, extending the lifespan of your cables, scopes and light sources.
When you have GuideControl connected to EndoscopeManager, you'll have a complete database of all your tests that are easy to navigate by serial number.
brands and types
GuideControl has auto diameter detection. It automatically detects the diameter of your connectors, allowing you to test any brand or type. So no more rummaging through your pile of testers trying to find the right one.
An easy 10 second test
Testing with GuideControl is quick and easy. With it's automatic diameter detection it fits any brand and type of cable so no more trying to find the right tester for a specific cable. A test takes 10 seconds and gives you a pass or fail on top via the LED DoviCircle.
Detailed test reports with images of your cable are available in EndoscopeManager.
How we test
GuideControl tests your light guide cables on 3 parameters, each parameter is given a score based on the measured values referenced to the manufacturers specifications and cloud reference. The tested parameters are as followed:
Measures light transmission of the cable (lux). It measures the amount of light on both the input, and output of the cable, giving you the light transmission value.
Measures the color correctness of the light after being transmitted through the cable based on the HSV value. This eliminates the possibility of misinterpretation of the image during surgery due to discolored light.
Measures the quality of the fibre package in your light guide cable with a camera. The device takes an image of the output of your cable. It then identifies the damaged fibers and gives you a percentage of how many fibers are damaged, so you can adhere to your IFU.
