Features

A wide selection of oxygen sensors is available to suit both physiological (in vivo) monitoring and a variety of in vitro applications. Sensors featuring integrated thermocouples support automatic temperature-compensation of oxygen readings. Oxygen sensors are supplied in sealed Tyvek® pouches.

Bare-fibre oxygen sensors

  • NX-BF/O/E Oxygen-only bare-fibre sensor

Flexible, minimally invasive sensor suitable for localized oxygen measurements from virtually any tissue type, or for in vitro dissolved oxygen applications.

Tissue placement via introducer (e.g. Angiocath®)
T-90 response time approx. 20 s
Manual temperature compensation required
Removable/adjustable Luer
MRI compatible

Dimensions:
Tip diameter: approx. 250 µm
Exposed tip fibre length: 6 cm
Total sensor length: 2.5 m

Reusability: Limited due to fragility

NOTE: THIS SENSOR TYPE IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN 8 M LENGTH FOR MRI APPLICATIONS


  • NX-BF/OT/E Oxygen/Temperature bare-fibre sensor

Flexible, minimally invasive sensor suitable for localized combined oxygen/temperature measurements from virtually any tissue type, or for in vitro dissolved oxygen applications.

Tissue placement via introducer (e.g. Angiocath®)
T-90 response time approx. 20 s
Automatic temperature compensation
Removable/adjustable Luer

Dimensions:
Tip diameter: approx. 350 µm
Exposed tip fibre length: 6 cm
Total sensor length: 2.5 m

Reusability: Limited due to fragility


Needle oxygen sensors

  • NX-NP/O/E Oxygen-only needle-encased sensor

23G surgical steel-encased sensor featuring greater physical robustness, suitable for localized oxygen measurements from virtually any tissue type, or for in vitro dissolved oxygen applications. Oxygen detection via lateral 'windows' distal from the sensor tip. Larger tissue sampling area/volume than bare-fibre type sensors (1 mm?).

Tissue placement: directly, or via introducer (e.g. Angiocath®)
T-90 response time approx. 3 min
Manual temperature compensation required
Fixed/potted Luer

Dimensions:
Needle diameter: approx. 650 µm
Exposed needle length: 6 cm
Total sensor length: 2.5 m

Reusability: Good


Large area oxygen sensors

  • NX-LAS-1/O/E Oxygen-only large area sensor (1 mm?)

Sensor tip shielded within a short 23G surgical steel cage, oxygen detection via lateral 'windows', 1 mm? tissue sampling area/volume. Suitable for localized oxygen measurements from virtually any tissue type, or for in vitro dissolved oxygen applications.

Tissue placement via introducer (e.g. Angiocath®)
T-90 response time – approx. 3 min
Manual temperature compensation required

Dimensions:
Tip cage diameter: 630 µm
Tip cage length: 5 mm
Sleeving diameter: 820 µm (first 50 cm)
Total sensor length: 2.5 m

Reusability: Good


  • NX-LAS-8/O/E Oxygen-only large area sensor (8 mm?)
