Ultrasound Transmission Gel

The use of Cogel Ultrasound is recommended in all medical applications, both diagnostic and therapeutic, where the use of ultrasound waves requires a coupling interface between the ultrasonic transducer and the skin. The special chemical-physical proprieties of the product guarantee high efficiency throughout the entire duration of examinations or treatments, even if they last a long time.

Relevant specification, quality and safety aspects

Cogel Ultrasound guarantees superior sound wave transmission quality across the entire frequency range typically used in medical diagnostics and ultrasound therapy. Cogel Ultrasound is a water-based, hypoallergenic, hydrosoluble, salt-free gel that does not damage the ultrasound transducers of the equipment. It doesn’t stain or grease.

The particular high-resistance reticular structure that characterizes Cogel Ultrasound limits the liquefaction effect of the gel caused by substances with a high saline content, such as sweat and body fat. The result is a considerable saving of usage as frequent additions of the product are not necessary during examinations or treatments. Cogel Ultrasound is completely free of perfumes or essences, which are notorious for causing primary allergic reactions.

It does not contain formaldehyde and its pH level is neutral. All raw materials used in the formulation of Cogel Ultrasound belong to the F.U. category (Official Pharmacopoeia). The containers used in the packaging of the gel are made of food-grade material that is completely latex-free.

Comedical carries out constant quality controls on each batch, especially on the entire production and packaging cycle of the Cogel Ultrasound line, both primary and secondary. Cogel Ultrasound is a CE marked (Class I) product and complies with the Council Directive 93/42EEC which regulates the production, commercialization and use of Medical Devices.
