Can we purchase just the probe and software for our laptop or do we need to buy your complete systems?
Yes, you can purchase just the probe and software and run it on most any Windows-based laptop, tablet, or desktop (XP or higher). You just need an available USB 2.0 (or higher). We highly recommend our complete systems though as we will warranty the entire system and be able to provide technical support, remote access, and other important support capabilities on our entire system. See the Product page on this site for more details on all the available configurations.
Will it be durable and accurate for five + years?
With proper care and maintenance the VitaScan v.2 should have a useful life of five or more years. Because the system is made of separate components (probe, touchscreen, keyboard, printer, etc.), customers can change out components easily over time as needed without have to purchase an entirely new bladder scanner system.
