Cool Pair Plus, which sells, services, refurbishes and repairs MR cryogenic equipment, will be joining the Avante Health Solutions family of companies.
“We anticipate that Cool Pair Plus will immediately provide accelerated growth within the Avante Diagnostic Imaging platform,” said Avante in a statement.
Avante’s diagnostic imaging services include on-site repair, discounted OEM-compatible parts, equipment upgrades, remote diagnostic tools, equipment planning and logistics, a technical hotline and mobile storage. The company has businesses specializing in ultrasound, surgical equipment, rental services, patient monitoring, oncology and diagnostic imaging.
For those who need to move fast and expand clinical capabilities -- and would love new equipment -- the uCT 550 Advance offers a new fully configured 80-slice CT in up to 2 weeks with routine maintenance and parts and Software Upgrades for Life™ included.
In 2018 the company acquired refurbisher Ultra Solutions
to expand its capabilities and footprint in the ultrasound market, as well as its inventory of parts, probes and ultrasound systems. The same year, it partnered with Equipment Maintenance Solutions (EMS)
to expand its footprint into MR and CT service, sales, parts and rentals.
Cool Pair Plus offers exchange and repair services for MR coldheads, compressors, adsorbers, and helium flex lines for major manufacturers, and provides on-site MR magnetic service, including turnkey installations for these solutions. It also has a history of consolidation, having acquired the Tripwire MR monitoring product line from Simplexable
in 2018. It described it at the time as "an important addition" to its existing da Vinci Remote Magnet Monitoring System.
Coor Pair Plus will continue to operate at its current site in Algonquin, Illinois. It is ISO 13485:2016 certified like other Avante companies.
