The single-use liquid flow sensor LD20 facilitates the fast and reliable measurement of the lowest flow rates, explained Sensirion in a statement. The device is suitable for biomedical applications.
The sensor provides bidirectional measurement of low flow rates in the range of a few milliliters per hour and can recognize failure modes, such as air in line or infiltration.
It could be used to monitor ambulatory infusion pumps or the ultra-low flow measurements of precious medications in neonatology.
Sensirion, which is headquartered in Stäfa, describes itself as the world’s leading producer of digital microsensors. Its liquid flow sensors are used in applications including diagnostic instruments, process control and the semiconductor industry.
The company’s latest development will be presented at the trade fair COMPAMED 2017 in November in Düsseldorf.
