Vue Ultrasound Gel

Vue Ultrasound Gel is a non-sterile, single use, non-invasive medical device used in medical diagnostic ultrasound procedures.

Vue Ultrasound Gel has been specifically formulated for use during ultrasound procedures. The primary role of an ultrasound gel is to act as a conductor for the ultrasound waves, allowing them to pass into the body without being affected by the air. The secondary role of ultrasound gel during ultrasound procedures, is to allow the probe or medical device used for the procedure, to move smoothly, reducing resistance and potential discomfort to the patient.

When selecting an ultrasound gel, it’s important to select the right format of gel for the procedure and the patient.

Sterile ultrasound gel

We offer Vue Ultrasound Gel in 20ml sachets, single-wrapped and double-wrapped.

Our single-use, sterile ultrasound gel formats are ideal for use in any healthcare setting where infection prevention and cross-contamination are key considerations. Vue Ultrasound Gel double-wrapped sachets are recommended for use during procedures that require a sterile technique.

Vue Ultrasound Gel should be used for external examinations only. However, the benefit of using a single-use, sterile format of ultrasound gel, ensures it is suitable for all external ultrasound examinations, on intact skin.

Sterile, single-use sachets of Vue Ultrasound Gel have a shelf-life of five years.

Non-sterile ultrasound gel

We offer non-sterile Vue Ultrasound Gel in bottles of 250ml and 1l. These larger volume options of ultrasound gel are ideal for use in a busy healthcare setting. Non-sterile ultrasound gel is suitable for use during low risk, general examinations on intact skin, and not immediately prior (within 24 hours) to an invasive procedure on the same area.

Non-sterile ultrasound gel should be used for external examinations only and is not suitable for use on immunocompromised, neonatal, or critically ill hospitalised patients.

Non-sterile bottles of Vue Ultrasound Gel have a shelf-life of three years if unopened or one week from opening.
