Platinum’s trained professionals evaluate and install sophisticated, complex medical equipment and systems to include standalone equipment and components that contain integrated circuitry and microprocessors. Platinum has a thorough understanding and knowledge of integrated systems designs and is able to determine whether items are compatible with existing utilities and existing equipment and components and what modifications to utilities are necessary to ensure the equipment operates as the user intends. Platinum’s biomedical equipment technicians provide technical advice to research staff regarding technical reviews of new equipment considering needs, environment, available facilities, network requirements, quality, repair ability, purchase, and overall life cycle management. We also offer advice and assistance in equipment selection, application, care, and operation, and advise prospective users on maintainability, suitability, and adaptability of equipment.
We inspect new equipment to determine whether the equipment is safe and operating within manufacturer's specifications, perform installation of new medical equipment systems, and communicate with research staff to provide assistance and in-service training, setup, calibration, operation, and application of equipment. Our technicians perform maintenance, troubleshooting, repairs, overhaul, and surveillance testing of electronic components, medical equipment and systems, and modifications. We conduct preventive maintenance checks and services (PMCS) inspections of research equipment and operate a wide variety of Test Measurement and Diagnostic Equipment.
