NeuWave Medical’s Certus 140 is a soft-tissue ablation system that uses microwave technology to treat skin lesions. The company says it is the only gas-cooled microwave system. CO2 cylinders ensure the probe shaft remains cool when delivering microwave energy to the target lesion. In the cooling system, an infrared (IR) temperature sensor measures the CO2 tank’s temperature to gauge its capacity and ensure sufficient pressure during procedures. The noncontact, self-powered micro IRt/c. SV temperature sensor has a 0.41” (10.5 mm) diameter and is 1.47” (12.0 mm) long. Its response time is less than 50 milliseconds.
