Evaluation kit for single-use flow sensor is now available

16-08-2021 | Sensirion | Design & Manufacture

The Sensirion LD20 single-use liquid flow sensor series is suitable for fast, precise and reliable measurements of the lowest flow rates in biomedical applications. Also available now is the evaluation kit for the LD20-0600L version. The sensor manufacturer offers its customers the sensor quickly and easily for initial evaluations and proof-of-concept prototype tests in small quantities.

The LD20-0600L liquid flow sensor is based on the company's CMOSens Technology and optimises costs by simplifying the design with no sacrifice to easy fluidic, electrical and mechanical connections. Luer lock fittings assure safe and secure integration into the fluidic line. The straight and unobstructed flow channel design has no moving parts. Medical-grade wetted materials give outstanding chemical resistance and exceptional media compatibility. While it can give bidirectional measurement of ultra-low flow rates up to 20ml/h, the sensor may also be utilised to detect common failure modes such as occlusion, air in line or free flow with unprecedented speed and sensitivity.

The single-use liquid flow sensors of the series measure the liquid flow rate at the point of interest for more effective patient treatment and increased safety. The intelligent, compact and cost-effective sensor series is ideal for an extensive range of biomedical applications in the field of critical and home care, such as monitoring of ambulatory infusion pumps, ultra-low flow measurements of precious medications in neonatology and paediatrics, or subcutaneous flow measurement, to name but a few. Furthermore, the sensors of the series allow the development of smart medical devices and satisfy the requirements of global trends such as point-of-care, patient compliance, complex drug administration and wearable designs.
