SALT LAKE CITY, May 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Varex Imaging Corporation (Nasdaq: VREX) today announced it will showcase its latest digital detectors, X-ray imaging tubes, connect and control devices and software solutions at the Chinese Medical Equipment Fair (CMEF), Asia Pacific's leading event for the healthcare value chain, in Shanghai on May 14-17, 2019.

Varex Imaging Corporation

Varex will also launch its new 'Local for Local' campaign at CMEF. This initiative reflects an investment in the company's Wuxi facility to service business in China with increased local X-ray tube and digital detector manufacturing and the aim of being global partners for local business.

"We are a global company that brings innovative X-ray imaging components to imaging systems manufacturers. One of our strategies is to be globally local and get as close to our customers as possible by establishing local commercial relationships, delivering local service and support, and sourcing from local suppliers as much as possible. Our customers in China want a local partner and we believe the investment in and expansion of our Wuxi facility is a key element for Varex to be successful in China," said Sunny Sanyal, Chief Executive Officer of Varex Imaging Corporation.

More specifically, the investment in the company's Wuxi facility aims to:

  • Enable Varex to offer service support, returns, delivery in China and to provide increased flexibility to support its customer base on a timely basis, and
  • Reduce shipping and tariff costs for customers

"Varex continues to grow its footprint in Wuxi, and we are in the early stages of the activities that we have planned in terms of delivering high quality service to our customers. I'm excited about the future and our investments in Wuxi will increase the level of customer service that we can provide our Chinese customers," stated David O'Reilly, Senior Manager of Operations Service Center for Varex Imaging Corporation.

At CMEF 2019, Varex will exhibit new and improved products as well as packaged solutions for Radiography, Mammography, Fluoroscopy and Computed Tomography (CT). Products to be showcased include:

Digital Flat Panel Detectors

3024MX is second-generation FPD for Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) and Full Field Digital Mammography (FFDM). The new model 3024MX has a maximum frame rate of 5 fps, 40% higher saturation dose, and improved low dose performance which makes 3024MX a robust and cost-efficient choice for 3D tomosynthesis and mammography.

CMOS 3131 is a large area FPD with great low-dose performance and imaging speed for Mobile C-arm, Cardiovascular, and Dental CBCT applications. 

3131Z first in a planned series of Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide (IGZO) based FPDs for Surgical and Dental applications with a 100 µm pixel size. The Z platform offers significant performance benefits over most a-Si detectors.

X-Ray Tubes

The Varex mammography portfolio includes the B-121, an upgrade to Varex's B-115 housing design. The unique fan shroud design allows 300W of heat dissipation compared to the 100W of dissipation with the B-115. This increase in dissipation supports the shift to 3D tomosynthesis imaging in women's healthcare.

Varex brought the revolutionary anode end grounded X-ray tube technology to the CT market and is now bringing that same technology to the cardiovascular / angiography X-ray tube market with the anode end grounded FP-1596. This is a small, lightweight, compact design with excellent image quality due to significant reduction in off focal radiation. 

The MCS-6074 is a cost-effective replacement for the GE Performix and Performix 40 X-Ray tube.  The MCS-6074 with conventional bearings, is optimized in form and function for use in a wide range of GE CT scanners, including the Optima CT660. As an updated offering from the Varex Imaging Service Solutions Group, the MCS-6074 is available with technical and logistics support to enable increased system uptime and assist our customers' success.

Software

Nexus DR™ and DRF™ software are multi-purpose digital image acquisition software systems that combines RF and DR capabilities on one imaging platform using various flat panel detectors.

Connect & Control Solutions 

The Optica™ 10 and Optica™ 40 collimators are available for integration with radiography and fluoroscopy systems. The Optica™ 10 is a manually operated collimator for integration with mobile and stationary radiography systems. This collimator is equipped with a long-life power LED that projects a bright light field on the exposed area. LED brightness and timer are adjustable via an internal USB port.

Varex Imaging will be highlighting packaged component solutions for medical applications at CMEF and will have their team of imaging experts on hand at the show to advise customers on these offerings. Andrew Hartmann, Varex Senior Vice President of Medical Global Sales and Marketing commented, "Collaboration with customers is something that differentiates us. Not only do we design and build X-ray imaging components; we also have an extensive engineering department that allows us to engage on a new project with our customers from the very beginning and provide them access to Varex engineers to supplement the work they are doing. This allows us to provide customized solutions for each of our customers."
