cath-lab-tube-price-guideThe interventional lab in most hospitals is a critical room that needs to perform like a workhorse for cardiac catheterization, electrophysiology, embolizations, ablations, and a slew of other procedure types. Downtime on a cath lab results in rescheduling patients at best and, if a lab fails during a procedure, it’s all hands on deck to care for the patient while working to get the equipment up and running again!

In these crucial and complex systems, one of the most important components is the X-ray tube. As a core component of the imaging chain the tube carries a heavy work load, generating X-rays and managing heat. As you weigh out the risks and rewards of supporting your own service in-house vs. placing it under a service contract, the following guide is designed to help you plan for the eventual failure of your lab's X-ray tube.

Cath Tube Price Guide

The table below covers part numbers and pricing for the X-ray tubes found on the most common digital cath models in use today. In addition to being available from your lab's OEM, these tubes can be found on the secondary market for significantly lower prices depending on the level of use they've seen in the field.

If your cath lab is from a manufacturer or model line that doesn't appear here, contact us. Our parts representatives can still get you a quote and help you find the tube you need.

System Mfr./Model Tube Model Part # OEM Cost Low-Use Used Mid-Use Used
GE Innova MX-160A 2216500 $185,000 $60,000 - $80,000 $35,000 - $50,000
Philips Allura FD10 MRC-200 0508 9890-000-85143 $183,000 $45,000 - $65,000 $35,000 - $45,000
Philips Allura FD20 MRC-200 0407 9890-000-85103 $183,000 $65,000 - $85,000 $40,000 - $55,000
Siemens Axiom Megalix Cat 125 5764506 $96,000 $40,000 - $60,000 $30,000 - $40,000

The Takeaway

Far be it from us to be doomsayers, but it is true that no X-ray tube lasts forever. When your tube's time comes, we hope we can help you get your interventional lab back in the game as quickly and affordably as possible. Reach out to our team if you'd like to get set up in our parts buying system proactively for even better response times. And if you need a tube today- request one right now by calling 1-877-621-2887.
