FISO is a pioneer in the introduction of fiber optic sensing technologies in medical applications. With its line of fiber optic pressure transducers, flagship product of the company on the medical market, FISO has built a strong reputation in laboratories and medical research centers with the versatility of the solutions it can offer. In addition, the automation level reached in the assembly process allowed FISO to reach the status of world leader as the OEM supplier of fiber optic pressure sensors.
The FISO-LS Preclinical Pressure Measurement System, exclusively from Harvard Apparatus, represents a new era in micro-catheter pressure measurements. These are the first miniature sensors that can be mass-produced, significantly reducing lead time in getting them into the lab as well as lowering the out-of-pocket costs to the researcher. Because they are fiber optic, they are unaffected by high RF or EM environments. The small sizes - 0.9 and 2 French - mean that they are useful in virtually any application.
Fiber optic pressure sensors can be used in a wide variety of applications such as urology, cardiovascular physiology, gastroenterology, neuroscience, respiratory phsyiology, ocular physiology and more. Additionally, MRI compatible fiber optic sensors are available when pressures need to be measured in the magnet, for example when triggering the MRI during specific phases of the cardiac cycle.
