There are several models listed below that allow customers to find the right product for their intended application. We use a variety of housing resins for different applications and sterilisation methods. The wide range of available media (PTFE or acrylic membranes) provides high flexibility and covers almost all market requirements.
Due to our wide choice of shapes (flat TP, "bell-shaped" TP and "dome-shaped" TP) and the very different type of materials and media used, the GVS line of transducer protectors is suitable for any blood line or other medical device.
Available membrane sizes range from 0.02 to 10 microns. Pressure isolators with flexible membrane are available for heart surgery.
Bacteria and/or fungi can create patient contamination.
These unwanted contaminants cause phlebitis and infections.
Our air vents are an ideal barrier to this contamination guarding against bacteria and fungi reaching the fluid path, and eventually the patient.
Although no one should knowingly use a contaminated solution, our air vent equipped with membranes are bacterial retentive.
For bacterial retention consideration, always keep in mind that filtering bacteria in air is about 10 times more efficient than in water, which means that this enables hydrophobic membranes of 1.2 or 3 μm to filter Brevundimonas diminuta (0.2μm by a hydrophilic membrane in liquid).
