Blood gas analysers are used to determine levels for various gases of interest in blood. As the technology of such devices is progressing more novel devices are being researched, where the need for high performance automation is a constant requirement.
In this particular project a fully automated bag access solution was required, which was developed by using plastic injection moulded components in the access mechanism. The additional requirement was to develop a syringe system with a wide speed range for fluid dispensing.
Other work for for a lab based blood gas analyser was taken to find more cost effective solutions from a redesign and manufacturing perspective.
