Information regarding fake Littmann Stethoscopes:
According to 3M, many different types of Littmann Stethoscope
have begun to appear on the market using the Littmann logo. These
fakes are usually available via the internet. The quality is
markedly worse than that of the original. These Stethoscopes are
usually on offer via Ebay or small online shops. 3M recommend that
to be completely sure you are purchasing the genuine article,
always buy from an authorised dealer.
DocCheck Shop is, of course, an authorised Littmann dealer.
