The Hummingbird Pm1116 delivers reliable paramagnetic oxygen analysis to PHASEIN´s ISA Sidestream medical analyzer.

CROWBOROUGH, UK -- Hummingbird Sensing Technology's partnership with medical device manufacturer PHASEIN continues to flourish with a new agreement to work together on forthcoming projects.

Hummingbird's acclaimed paramagnetic oxygen sensing technology is used in PHASEIN's ISA sidestream gas analyser range, which combines innovative PHASEIN technologies with advanced features to optimize all aspects of medical gas monitoring. Available as stand-alone plug-in-and-measure analysers or as easy-to-integrate build-in modules, the ISA Sidestream range offers all functions required for a complete multigas analyser, from an intelligent light emitting gas inlet to an advanced flow controller and a rugged micro pump.

Oxygen monitoring for the ISA sidestream is provided by Hummingbird's Pm1116 Paramagnetic Oxygen Sensor Module, a compact, digital fast response transducer designed for measurements in anaesthesia applications. Using Hummingbird's unique paramagnetic oxygen cell, the Pm1116 offers a fast, linear, accurate, highly stable and selective response in a non-depleting unit, ensuring the ISA Sidestream delivers fast response for expired breath oxygen measurement with high accuracy and reliability.

"Our relationship with PHASEIN is an exciting one and we are delighted to be working with this young and ambitious company as we continue to refine our technology offer," says Martin Cox, Business Unit Manager, Hummingbird Sensing Technologies.

"Just as PHASEIN values the core measurement stability and reliability Hummingbird brings to its processes, we value the benefits of seeing our products perform within such a high quality and flexible analyser platform. By planning future projects with PHASEIN as they grow, we look forward to a strong and beneficial partnership."
