Captus® 3000 Portable Thyroid Uptake System

 

Portable Thyroid Uptake System

The new portable Captus® 3000 provides significantly improved portability and maneuverability. This lightweight module is easy to move and position. The system folds into a compact form for convenient storage. The stand can also be quickly disassembled into four lightweight sections for easy handling and transport to another site. It can be quickly reassembled in only a few minutes. The portable system provides enhanced range of motion for patients on a gurney, chair or standing.

The portable system includes all of the well known Captus® 3000 software modules.

The thyroid uptake module provides flexible protocols, including decay corrected dose, standard capsule measurement, aliquot correction and multiple capsule factor. Reports include detailed count information and calculated percent uptake. Results which exceed predefined normal ranges will be flagged.

Bioassay module stores individual efficiencies for bioassay geometry, multiple measurements for each staff individual and flags value above preset trigger levels.

Fully automated quality assurance program using Cs-137 and Eu-152 rod sources provided with system. QA includes full system calibration, Zero offset, energy resolution, energy linearity, efficiency calculations, constancy, chi-squared and MDA functions.

1024 channel user friendly Multi-Channel Analyzer provides automatic and manual ROI selection, ability to use stored auto-calibration setup, or manually adjust zero, gain and voltage. Spectra can be saved and retrieved for comparison. An isotope library with data for over 90 isotopes is included. All MCA adjustments are software controlled.

Timed Activity Analysis module enables automatic timed measurements with decay corrected results in either graphical or numeric display.

Wipe test functions include menu driven format and automatic isotope identification feature. Wipes may be grouped for convenience. Values above preset trigger levels will be flagged.

Lab test features include I-125 and Cr-51 Blood Volume protocols. Red Blood Cell Survival for Cr-51 results are decay corrected with report options for graphical or numeric representation.

System also provides data storage and retrieval, archive and export features. Both summary and individual detail reports are available for each module.

Optional Dicom interface pulls patient information from information systems network and sends reports back to PACS.

Performing Thyroid Uptake measurements has never been easier. The Captus 3000 combines a totally new software program with the latest PC technology to create a Thyroid Uptake system that is fast, reliable, and extremely easy to use.

The Captus software has been designed to get you up and running in virtually no time at all. The program contains a "Quick-Start" feature that walks the user through all of the initial setup functions. The "Quick-Start" feature also serves as an excellent teaching tool. The Captus 3000 software is a full service program with Thyroid Uptake, Wipe Testing, Bioassay, Schillings, Dicopac®, Blood Volume and RBC Survival functionality built in. The Wipe Test module has been a "New" feature that allows the flexibility of predefined or user defined groupings. The entire program has "Fly Over" control bars to allow quick access to whatever function is necessary.

QA is of course completely automated and now includes a "New" feature for measuring Minimum Detectable Activity. With the use of the two included reference standards (Cs-137 and Eu-152) the system will move from Calibration to Constancy to Chi-square with limited time and effort.

There is a new and versatile 1024 Multichannel Analyzer (MCA) module that allows measurements of energies up to 2 MeV. The MCA module also has an isotope selection library with over 90 preloaded isotopes and adjustable ROI's for easily reproducible counting parameters.

CAPTUS 600 Well Counting System

CAPTUS 600 is a complete microprocessorcontrolled thyroid uptake system to meet the needs of your department. The CAPTUS 600 is a high-quality device that offers a cost effective alternative to PC based systems.

With functional power to handle the heaviest workloads, the CAPTUS 600's 256-channel pulse-height analyzer provides features not found on any other non- PC based thyroid uptake system. The Thyroid Uptake module provides protocols where a standard can be measured at each uptake, or the dose can be automatically decay-corrected by the software. Thyroid bioassay for staff members is obtained with only one neck count.

The printer generates complete easy to read reports for all procedures. Menu-driven operations use easy-to-follow prompts on a large screen. The compact spring arm stand permits easy patient positioning and moves on 4 heavy-duty revolving casters. The base is designed to hold an optional well detector. When the optional well is purchased with the CAPTUS 600, the system can be used to count laboratory samples or perform Wipe Tests.

FEATURES
• Effortless Thyroid Uptakes and Staff Bioassays
• Convenient alpha/numeric keypad for inputting patient name, demographics, etc.
• Optional Well Counter allows Wipe Tests, Blood Volume, Schilling and RBC Survival Tests
• Memory for 15 patients with up to 4 uptakes per patient
• On-screen display of a full featured 256 channel MCA with presets, multiple ROIs and configuration archiving
• Multiple capsule administration protocols
• Daily test and Chi Square programs
• Pre-dose measurement feature with automatic residual activity subtraction
