Our mass flow controllers in particular see extensive use in bioreactors, pill coating and the creation of artificial atmospheres for research. Our flow meters are used to leak test critical medical devices like stents, while our larger industrial devices are used to heat or steam-clean bioreactors and in facilities management in hospitals.
Blood is one of the most complex substances for determination of the Hg content. At the same time, blood is the most important diagnostic medium used for monitoring the effect of Hg vapor on the human organism. In almost all the countries, personnel of mercury-involving production facilities are regularly examined for the Hg content in blood, which should not exceed 20–50 µg/l, whereas in the case of a person unexposed to mercury vapor the blood normally contains 1–3 µg/l of Hg.
The main way of mercury removal from human body is it s urinary excretion, which is an important diagnostic medium for screening examination of population, risk group determination, and diagnostics and treatment of mercury poisoning.
A number of components in a typical heart-lung machine require precise gas flow control. One typical component is the oxygenator, which is used for exchanging oxygen and carbon dioxide in the blood during surgical procedures. Axetris offers solutions for high-performance oxygen gas flow control in medical applications in the form of meters, controllers or gas mixing manifolds.
Hospitals and other healthcare facilities are where people go to when their immune systems are at their weakest. Their bodies may be fighting a flu virus or cancer or have open wounds making them extremely vulnerable. This is no time for pathogens to be wafting about in the air and HVAC systems. One virus or bacterium landing on an open wound can cause an infection that could be life threatening or cause an otherwise successful operation to go very badly for the patient.
Indoor Air Quality and advanced environmental control strategies are playing a growing role in patient safety as hospitals and medical care facilities strive to improve wellness metrics and provide the best in healing environments. Three key factors make attention to indoor air quality particularly important in health care settings.
Environics gas mixing, blending and dilution systems provide for precise mixing of gases for a wide variety of clinical applications. Our systems can produce gas concentrations from percent to ppb levels for single or multi-point calibration. The high accuracy of our mixers make them the units of choice for a wide variety of laboratory and research applications. For example, Environics Biological Atmosphere Incubation Mixers provide stable and accurate gas mixes for any laboratory or clinical need. You can...
Several gases are used in the hospitality industry, mainly carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrogen (N2). These gases pose a serious risk should they leak, this risk can occur from fixed piped gas systems or individual cylinders of gases. Analox offer a range of fixed & portable gas detectors suitable for various applications which use gas, including beverage dispensers, and are ideal for detecting gas leaks. From portable oxygen monitors, such as our Aspida, to fixed monitors including our Ax60+ and O2NE+, our full...
