Some of the ultrasound gels on the market introduce a layer of different ultrasound velocity, which changes the angles of the ultrasound. This interferes with the measurements. We are pleased you have made HR® jelly available again

Transonic Systems Inc., an industry leader in transit time ultrasound and providing real-time, accurate, intuitive, and reliable flow measurement, has conducted an evaluation of HR® Lubricating Jelly and concluded that HR’s ultrasound transmission velocity is considered to be an extremely close match to blood at body temperature. Thus HR® Lubricating Jelly provides a contact layer with the absence of air (air blocks ultrasound) which does not interfere with the ultrasound measurements. “Some of the ultrasound gels on the market introduce a layer of different ultrasound velocity, which changes the angles of the ultrasound. This interferes with the measurements. We are pleased you have made HR® jelly available again” said Mark S. Alsberge, Vice President of Medical & Regulatory Affairs for Transonic Systems.

HR® Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is thrilled to receive such positive feedback from such a reputable company as Transonic Systems. “We are proud of the quality and effectiveness of HR® Lubricating Jelly and look forward to working together with Transonic Systems to make our product available to customers of Transonic Systems” said Dr. Robert L. Waltz, VP & Chief Medical Officer of HR® Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

HR® Lubricating Jelly will be available for purchase & distribution October 1, 2010; for more information please visit http://www.hrpharma.com
