A-scan probes are one of the most fundamental ultrasonic modalities and the starting point for more complex methods of ultrasonic imaging and examination. Blatek provides premium quality A-scan transducers in a frequency range of 10MHz to 20Mhz made with finely tuned piezo-composite material and a maximized optimization second to none. We manufacture A-scan probes that have a fixation light in the center of the transducer face for alignment with the visual axis. Every transducer we manufacture is built with documented bills of materials, procedures, and testing that is under ECN control.
Our B-scan transducers are built to create two-dimensional, cross section views. B-scan probes are constructed with the same high grade bio-compatible materials and follow the rules of regimented processes, procedures, and testing. Customers can choose their frequency and ergonomics with Blatek providing the optimum matched piezocomposite stack.
The Doppler Effect is this: if the sound source is moving toward the listening device, the wavelength is compressed and the pitch increased. The opposite is true when that sound source moves away from the listening device. This scenario is used in ultrasonic systems for visualization and measurement of blood flow. Blatek can tackle your CW Doppler needs in your configuration and requirements. Currently, all Doppler transducers at Blatek are constructed using our proprietary piezo-composite for the best sensitivity possible.
Pachymetry is derived from the Greek pachy meaning “thick” and metron indicating “measure”. This one dimensional form of A-scan probe is used to accurately measure thickness of and within the eye. Blatek continues to be a world wide leader in Pachymetry probes. With bio-compatible materials and state-of-the-art ceramics, these time tested designs continue to feed and impress the pachymetry market. Frequencies starting at 10MHz and 50MHz provide the necessary resolution needed for precise and accurate measurement. Apertures less than 2mm are typical with potted cables and connectors of the customers’ choice.
