Cephasonics Launches the cQUB-1

Cephasonics cQUB-1 White-Label Ultrasound System

Santa Clara, Calif., October 22, 2014—Cephasonics, a technology-innovation leader with a game-changing embedded-ultrasound platform, today announced the introduction of the cQUB™-1 (cQuest Ultrasound Box™-1), the first product in a new family of cQUB white-label ultrasound systems designed and manufactured by Cephasonics for purchase by companies to rebrand with their own brand name and model number.

“The cQUB family is the next natural progression in our go-to-market ultrasound solutions,” said Richard Tobias, CEO of Cephasonics. “In addition to the scanner, we designed a new simple clinical user interface for an iPad mini™ with intuitive touch controls, including scan-depth control and image-enhancement buttons. This provides ease-of-use and improved workflow efficiency.”

“Sonographer input and customer feedback was invaluable in the product and user-interface design process,” Mr. Tobias continued. “We’re seeing high interest in this market-ready product from our customer base and began our first customer shipments in August 2014.”

The cQUB-1 is a complete 64:192 (channels: multiplexed channels) ultrasound system with an integrated computer that has a connection on one end to an ultrasound transducer. It can be displayed on devices such as tablets, laptops or PCs (clients) using Cephasonics’ cQLink™ client/server wired or wireless technology. The entire system is fully encased in a tough industrial-plastic enclosure with a sturdy handle for portability. It can be configured for any setting, including pole mounting in either vertical or horizontal configurations.
