Datamars’ UHF LaundryChip family, suitable for use in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

LaundryChip™ 401 and 301 from Datamars have been successfully tested as MR Conditional. The MR conditional label guarantees the suitability for use in Magnetic Resonance Imaging equipment, meeting clinical needs for MR safety and compatibility and ensuring in this way both patient safety and diagnosis integrity. This certifies the absence of harmful substances at levels that can be dangerous for the human body. Therefore, a patient wearing a garment or a textile with embedded a Datamars 301 or 401 UHF transponder can be safely scanned in an MR system at 1.5 or 3 Tesla, while having a minimal impact on the MR images.

To reach such a result, Datamars’ Research and Development team has made an in-depth analysis of each component used in the transponder and when needed, replaced them by a-magnetic elements. Intensive Magnetic Resonance testing has been also performed by an accredited ISO certified lab, specialized in testing medical implants and other devices specifically for MRI safety and MRI compatibility.

The UHF textile tags have an intensive use, from from nursery homes to nuclear plants. The tag quality and certifications are extremely important to ensure maximum safety and comfort in any type of application
