System supports rapid development and testing of hardware for COVID-19 treatment
Goleta, California – March 24, 2020 BIOPAC Systems, Inc. announced a new Ventilator Validation System for engineering and device manufacturers to use when designing and testing new and existing ventilators for human use. The VVK100-SYS includes a pulmonary airflow transducer, airway pressure transducer, amplifiers, calibration syringe, and a data acquisition system with automated pulmonary function analysis software. Components of the system have been used by thousands of researchers and developers in the world’s top universities. Each system can monitor up to eight ventilators at a time, and multiple systems can operate in concert to increase productivity and maximize efficiency.
“Medical device companies, research institutions, medical centers, labs, and prototype developers need a fast way to develop and manufacture ventilators,” said BIOPAC CEO Frazer Findlay, “and BIOPAC has produced pulmonary and respiration products for over 30 years. We can help in the fight against COVID-19 by supporting ventilator research and manufacturing with access to quality validation tools, and we can easily provide the resources to meet this urgent need.”
Included in the Ventilator Validation System are five important components:
Use the VVK100-SYS for measurements for ventilator validation, including Pressure and Timing; Cough Pressure Release (obstruction valve); Positive End-Expiratory Pressure (PEEP); Pressure; Oxygen Concentration; Air Flow & Volume.
Ventilatory Validation Systems are available immediately. Contact your local BIOPAC representative for more information.
