About Best Medical Canada

Best Medical Canada is located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.  We are an internationally recognized leader in the development and manufacture of radiation measurement devices.  The company was incorporated in 1984 (as Thomson Nielsen) and since then we have worked almost exclusively in radiation detection technologies.

Thomson Nielsen was acquired by Best Medical in the summer of 2005, and has since been renamed Best Medical Canada.  Best Medical Canada will continue to be actively involved in research and development on the MOSFET products in various medical applications.

The goal of Best Medical Canada is to offer unparalleled quality products and services to our customers around the world.  We strive to supply our Canadian customers with a convenient shopping experience for their hospitals and clinics.  Our extended business hours can accommodate facilities across the nation.

Our Technology

Our core technologies are internationally recognized as leading edge and we continue to spearhead technology development to maintain our significant lead in all fields.

Our proprietary MOSFET (Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor) technology is rugged enough to withstand flights into the high-radiation environment of space.  Equipment has been flown on a number of satellites as well as being used inside MIR Space Station.  The MOSFETs have been worn by Astronauts on the International Space Station as a part of a Human Health project in order to measure dose to the body during space walks.  At the same time, Best Medical Canada's dosimeter is the smallest in the world, at 1 millimeter square, and can be used in the most sensitive medical applications, such as pediatric cardiology.
