Ultrasound Gel - a Must-Have for Ultrasound Examinations
Ultrasound gel is a contact gel used during scans to reduce the acoustic resistance between the air and the patient's skin to create a connection between the ultrasound machine and transponder. Thanks to the gel, the ultrasonic waves are conducted directly into the tissue, facilitating the medical professional's examination of the tissue structure.
Ultrasound Gel - for Ultrasound Scans and Therapies
Ultrasound gel is a non-scented, colourless, viscous gel that is used for ultrasonic scans and therapies. The diagnostic contact gel is highly conductive to sound waves and creates a non-interrupted connection between skin and ultrasound transducer. Since the ultrasound gel comes into direct contact with the patient's skin, it contains particularly skin-friendly and non-irritating ingredients.
Ultrasound Transmission Gel for Every Kind of Procedure
The leading manufacturers of ultrasound machines recommend the use of Aquasonic 100. This non-sterile gel is water-soluble, bacteriostatic, hypoallergenic and free of formaldehyde, guaranteeing a very high skin tolerance. It doesn't stain the patient's clothing or damage transducers and can be bought as a 250 ml bottle or a 5 litre canister.
For particularly sensitive patients, you can use the Aquasonic 100 Clear, a completely dye and fragrance free product. For situations requiring sterile gel, you can order the Aquasonic 100 gel as a sterile ultrasonic gel, pre-packaged in sterile packettes containing 20g each.
In addition to the Aquasonic ultrasound gel, our shop offers the OptiLube Lubricating Jelly for a particular versatile use. It is a sterile medical lube with good adherence, that can even be used for vaginal ultrasound examinations thanks to its mucous membrane compatibility.
Ultrasound Spray as an Alternative to Gel
In addition to the classical lubricant, the Praxisdienst online shop also offers the YoLux Ultrasound Spray. This contact spray is ideal for Doppler and therapeutic medical ultrasound procedures. It can even be used for ESWL. The ultrasound spray doesn't drip, yet still offers excellent glide. As a spray, the YoLux is particularly easy to apply and allows for a residue-free use without needing additional cleaning.
