Bio-Probe Flow Transducer

When the Bio-Console® 560 System is used with the TX50 Bio-Probe® Flow Transducer the natural conductivity of the blood is used to determine actual flow rate, not an estimate.


Bio-Probe Flow Transducer

  • Accurate measurement to +/- 5% of flow rate*
  • Maximum 24 hour drift of less than 50 cc/min
  • Unaffected by turbulence, hematocrit or temperature

* Below 1 liter/minute, accuracy is 50 cc/minute
