Innovative uses for Non-Invasive and Sterilize-able Fluid Management Sensors

The “Single-Use” phenomenon has captivated the medical device and pharmaceutical markets by driving down processing costs while maintaining the highest level of sterility and quality control. Managing, controlling, and monitoring the flow of liquid media in these systems can present unique new challenges to today’s process engineer.

SMD Sensors is offering a Webinar that will focus on these fluid management sensors and will help define and review their technical performance specifications and their applications. Sensor types will cover ultrasonic flow sensors, ultrasonic bubble (air) detectors, tubing occlusion (blockage) sensors, disposable tubing pressure sensors, non-invasive capacitance liquid level sensors, and customized load and weight scale sensors. Customization will include support of end use cartridge designs for single use medical devices.

For over 30 years, SMD Sensors has been providing customized designs to suit our customer’s specific needs. Medical device applications include dialysis machines, infusion pumps, enteral feeding pumps, RF ablation, automated diagnostic machines, eye pressure sensors, surgical tool force sensors, and other robotic medical tools. In pharmaceutical markets, our sensors help automate and monitor bioprocess fermenters, filtering skids, animal research habitats, as well as critical dispensing and mixing equipment.

Before you begin your next medical design or pharmaceutical process improvement project, we invite you to contact SMD Sensors and sign up for this informative technical webinar. We are ISO9001 and ISO 13485 certified and we look forward to making your next application a success!

Key Learning Objectives

  • Flow measurement in tubing: How to detect non-invasively? How to offer pre-sterilized disaposables?
  • Detecting harmful air/gas bubbles in tubing?
  • Measuring a blockage in tubing: Do I use a Load Cell or should I measure tubing Pressure?
  • How can I detect liquid level changes in a disposable container in the most economical way?
