Question
For the TU5 Series Turbidimeters can Hach provide guidance regarding RFID and medical devices?
Summary
TU5 RFID and medical devices
Answer

Here is a summary statement and a supporting document that gives “guidance” on the effects of RFID on medical devices, such as “pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), and other electronic medical devices”.

There are no definitive answers, because there are countless number of factors involved, including RFID transmitters as well as medical devices, and because both technologies are evolving so quickly.  The attached document from the FDA provides the current status without defining any definitive regulations or rulings.

The user manual for each instrument does include a "Safety information for RFID modules" section:
TU5300 sc & TU5400 sc Series User Manual

TU5200 Series User Manual
