Giraffe Blue Spot PT Lite Phototherapy System

The Giraffe* Blue Spot PT Lite offers high-intensity phototherapy for effective treatment of hyperbilirubinemia.

Benefits

The Giraffe Blue Spot PT Lite makes advantages such as these routine for any neonatal care unit:

Outstanding performance 

  • Emits Blue LED light in a narrow spectral band, focusing on Bilirubin’s peak absorption wavelength to speed its breakdown. 
  • Provides high-intensity light output in a compact, lightweight and user-friendly package.   
  • For aggressive treatment of hyperbilirubinemia, you can use the Blue Spot PT in conjunction with our BiliSoft LED system to maximize surface-area coverage.  

Easy to use 

  • Compact and lightweight, the Blue Spot PT is quickly positioned for precise delivery of therapeutic light. Yet it’s easily rotated out of the way for patient assessment and care.   

Comfortable for everyone 

  • With the innovative gooseneck design and optics, the Blue light is aimed at the patient, away from caregivers and neighboring beds. 
  • The light source is tucked away safely in a box well removed from the patient, to protect shield both ambient heat and noise, as well as the risks associated with positioning bulky equipment overhead.       

Technology

Advanced technologies make the Giraffe Blue Spot PT Lite a great solution for treating hyperbilirubinemia in virtually any setting.

  • Its light focuses on a narrow spectral band of 430-490 nm to speed bilirubin breakdown.
  • It offers excellent light uniformity across a large spot, enabling full body-surface coverage and effective dosage.
  • Its blue LED bulb's nominal life is 10,000 hours - almost four times longer than a conventional halogen bulb's.
  • All this capability is offered in a unit weighing only 4 kilograms, with a light box measuring just 17.8x30.5x11.4 cm.

Specifications

Among the Giraffe Blue Spot PT’s most important specs are these:

  • Unit size: 17.8 cm W x 30.5 cm H x 11.4 cm D (light box) 
  • Unit weight: 4 kg 
  • Spectral irradiance: 45 μW•cm-2•nm-1 +25%/-20%, measured after a five-minute warm-up on a new unit with a new bulb, 38 cm from lens to spot center, by a BiliBlanket Light Meter II with 400-520 nm range 
  • Bulb type: Blue LED 
  • Nominal bulb life: 10,000 hours 1 
  • Noise level: <50 dBa measured 1 meter from the unit 
  • Mode of operation: Continuous 
  • Standards: Product ETL is certified to the following standards: UL 60601-1, IEC 60601-1, CAN/CSA C22.2 #601.1, IEC 60601-1-2, and IEC 60601-2-50     

1.  IEC standards recommend bulb replacement at 25% output reduction, which corresponds to 27 uW.cm-2.nm-1 and occurs at approximately 10,000 hours. However, sufficient irradiance for effective phototherapy continues well after 25% reduction.

Tour

  • Innovative, Dependable Design

    Therapeutic light is delivered through a flexible lightpipe for fast, easy positioning. Flexible lightpipe lets you focus the therapeutic light just where it needs to be, which minimizes exposure to caregivers and infants in neighboring beds.
  • High Intensity Phototherapy

    Delivers focused light therapy directly to the patient, minimizing undesired exposure for caregivers and patients in adjacent areas. Emits blue light in a narrow spectral band of 430-490 nm, focusing on bilirubin’s peak absorption wavelengths to speed its breakdown May be used in conjunction with the GE BiliSoft LED system to maximize surface area coverage.
  • Flexible Mounting Options

    Flexible mounting options allow for fast, easy positioning, to save both valuable time and space. Bed mounted units conserve space in all care areas. Roll stand mounted option provides added flexibility.
  • Lower total cost of ownership

    Giraffe Blue Spot PT delivers significant bulb cost savings with its blue LED light source that can last up to 10K hours 10K bulb hours is equivalent to 6-7 years of typical clinical usage (normal product lifecycle) Current Halogen replacement bulb is $250 and lasts ~2.5K hours, so that’s cost savings of approx. $1K per device over the life of the product (6-7 years) 80% less energy consumption reduces electricity costs (greener technology)
