A group of dedicated engineers at Interacoustics have perfected the OAE detection algorithms, offering unprecedented reliability in their resistance to noise and other artifacts.
Together with its sleek design and special on-screen user guidance, Sera™ makes sure that you always obtain a proper probe seal.
Newborn hearing screening requires complex and sensitive technology to be able to record the electrophysiological and physiological responses (ABR and OAE). At the same time, newborns have very small ear canals, which means the probe must be quite small and lightweight to fit properly. In addition, newborns often have earwax and fetal fat in their ear canal, which can impede the sensitive equipment.
SnapPROBE™ is a small and lightweight probe with a smooth surface. The smooth surface means it is easy to keep clean, accommodating for the hygienic demands in clinical practice.
SnapPROBE™ comes with two designated ear tips of a conical or narrow shape, which are longer compared to other models. They are designed to catch earwax and other foreign bodies that could harm the probe electronics.
Combined with its designated ear tips, SnapPROBE™ increases stimulus stability and reduces noise during measurements.
