New generation fiber-optic pressure measurement systems

GÖTEBORG, SWEDEN—AUGUST 20, 2007

Samba Sensors AB, Sweden, distributed in the US and worldwide by BIOPAC, introduces new generation fiber-optic pressure measurement systems using ultra-miniature sensors—the new Samba 201 (BIOPAC MPMS100A-1) and Samba 202 (BIOPAC MPMS100A-2).

Micropressure Measurement - fiber optic system

The new systems are stand-alone devices developed for high precision pressure monitoring, with a primary use in life science applications. New features include:

  • Two fiber-optic transducers can be connected simultaneously for relative pressure studies (Samba 202 – BIOPAC MPMS100A-2).
  • Size, weight, battery operation and internal data storage capacity make it fully portable and suitable for most research conditions, e.g. studies on location and in the MRI lab.
  • Data sampling rate of up to 40 kHz offers unmatched possibilities to visualize detailed pressure patterns during fractions of a second, all within a hand held device.
  • Improved pre-calibration concept—the transducer’s calibration information is now stored directly on its optical connector. The information is automatically read into the Samba (MPMS100A) unit at start-up. No further recalibration is needed.
  • USB 2.0 port to facilitate data transfer into a computer.

The new Samba system and the ultra-miniature Samba Preclin™ transducer (BIOPAC TSD170 series) is particularly useful for cardiovascular studies, e.g. to monitor real-time intravascular blood pressure (IBP), left ventricular pressure (LVP), right ventricular pressure (RVP) and right atrial pressure (RAP) in mice and other small animals. The system’s insensitivity to all forms of electro-magnetic fields offers the ability to monitor all these parameters in real time during MRI scanning.

Examples of other areas where the Samba system offers unique performance include neuro-trauma, respiratory, orthopaedic, oncology and urology research.
