The new FISO-LS fiber optic pressure sensing system, specifically designed for life-science research and available from Harvard Apparatus in the United States and many other regions, is the first FISO pressure sensing system designed for multi-use, non-disposable applications. The small sensors, at 300-, 640- and 1000-micron diameters and pressure ranges of +/- 300 mmHg and 0-10 bar, are designed to be used in any pre-clinical physiological pressure measurement application. Whether the researcher is measuring intracranial, gastro-intestinal, uro-genital, respiratory, spinal, intraocular, left ventricular pressure and more, the system is designed for accuracy. As signal transduction does not rely on fluid-filled catheters, there is no need to be concerned with hydrostatic pressure columns, dampening by air bubbles or the natural dampening of signal in fluid transduction.
