Gold Standard Non-mercurial Sphygmomanometer
Developed to provide a reliable and accurate alternative without mercury, achieved using silicon chip technology replacing the traditional mercury column with an electronic pressure detection system.
Validated to the ESH International Protocol by the Mayo Clinic. It is also sold as a test reference manometer for calibrating and checking aneroid devices – chosen by leading pharmaceutical companies for their testing services in the UK.
Peace of mind for calibration
The greenlight 300 comes with a 10 year calibration warranty as standard. The device does not require frequent calibration checks, leaving you more time to focus on patients.
The premier alternative to mercury
Mercury sphygmomanometers must be handled with care due to the risk of toxic effects when mercury is spilt. Health and safety measures must also be in place to deal with spills appropriately. Increasing concerns about mercury contamination have led many people to look for a mercury alternative.
The difficulty has been finding an accurate, reliable alternative and concerns have been expressed by many experts about the replacement of the mercury sphygmomanometers in clinical practice with potentially less accurate devices.
Overcoming problems associated with other types of sphygmomanometer: it is non‑toxic, robust and most importantly, automatically self-calibrates to zero when switched on, thus ensuring reliable accuracy. The traditional mercury display is replaced with LEDs clearly displaying pressure in steps of 2 mmHg, and the clinically important cuff pressure deflation rate is indicated.
Shown to be compliant with the US standard for non-automated sphygmomanometers, ANSI/AAMI SP9:1994, and has been approved by the FDA (K040410). It has also been shown to be compliant with the European standards BS EN ISO 81060-1 and BS EN 1060-3.
The device has confirmed accuracy of +/- 3mmHg and has been validated to the ESH International Protocol by the Mayo Clinic.
