October 14, 2015 — Kopp Development Inc. has released a new entryway system for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) rooms — FerrAlert Halo II Plus. This detection system dramatically reduces alarm fatigue by not alarming on the MRI door and ferromagnetic objects exiting the MRI room. Alarm fatigue reduction is a top priority for ECRI and The Joint Commission.

In addition, FerrAlert Halo II Plus will accept the forthcoming accessory from KDI, the Ferromagnetic Incident Log Manager (F.I.L.M.). This logging device will assist with root cause analyses and facilitates The Joint Commission compliance.

FerrAlert detectors feature unique, patented technology to detect and precisely locate the offending ferrous objects.
