Our Quality Testing Process

Our testing is at the highest level! While a calibrated column, stopwatch and pressure gauge will test your infusion pump. We feel that will barely meet the needs. We use a calibrated testing instrument, connected to a computer. The instrument provides an accurately measured operation of the pump, while the computer will only show the actual test results. There are no chances for technician “fudge”, your equipment must pass limits, or the software will not provide a passing test sheet.

Couple the automated testing with our high cleanliness standards, and a 26 point checklist to cover the standards established by and for all major medical equipment manufacturers.

Ardus utilizes the Certamaticâ„¢ testing unit and software calibrated to NIST standards annually and tested regularly here in our lab in-between uses. Electric safety tests meet/exceed UL 544 Standards.
