Previous methods of analysing CO2 levels in exhaled breath weren’t the most user friendly. Mains powered devices such as spirometers require a specific technique in order to give consistent results. This poses a particular challenge for younger and older users. In addition, these systems don’t measure very low levels of CO2 quickly or accurately enough to gauge respiratory performance.
That’s where our CO2 sensors could help transform your application. Our sensors accurately measure changing levels of CO2 in exhaled breath, as an integral part of your respiratory device or system. You can measure CO2 levels from 0-100%, at a rate of 20 readings per second.
So if your application needs to take fast, repeated measurements, at varying concentrations, you’ve come to the right manufacturer. Wireless respiratory systems are now a reality, since our sensors are still low power enough to be battery operated. You also have the option of portable, handheld and wearable devices, as our miniature sensors fit inside very compact products and systems.
Our solid-state CO2 sensors have been successfully used in healthcare markets for well over a decade. Typical applications we’ve supplied include: breath (or respiratory) analysis for capnography, metabolic assessment and sports science; instruments for use in laboratories; solutions for IoT (Internet of Things) projects; and various bio-medical research applications. Then there’s the more weird and wonderful applications we’ve done, such as CO2 sensors for preserving lifesaving organs.
Typically, we would recommend our SprintIR® range of high speed CO2 sensors for healthcare applications, when you need to measure fast changing CO2 levels. SprintIR® sensors take 20 readings per second, and maintain best-in-class records for fastest response times. Please see our SprintIR® sensors here.
The exact sensor required depends on what you want to use it for, the operating conditions, and any special features desired. If the SprintIR® sensors do not meet your requirements, you can use our product selector to specify your exact requirements.
