Kapnometer Gemini, für CO2 und O2 Messungen aus der Atemluft [CWE-GEMxx]
Zur kontinuierlichen O2 und CO2 Messung aus der Atemluft größerer Labortiere.
Capnometer Gemini - Introduction
Respiratory gas measurement has long been known
to be an excellent indicator of respiratory status, for both
spontaneously breathing and artificially ventilated animals.
The GEMINI Respiratory Monitor measures
breath-by-breath oxygen and carbon dioxide concentration
for accurate respiratory status assessment. The
instrument uses the latest technology fast infrared (CO2)
and paramagnetic (O2) measurement cells for unsurpassed
accuracy and long-term stability. Respiratory
rate is computed using the normal inspiration/expiration
excursion of the CO2 signal. Adjustable CO2 and respiratory
rate alarms are standard. Linear voltage outputs
are provided for both gasses and respiratory rate, and a
standard RS232 serial port provides data for external
monitoring or collection on a computer.
The measurements and computed results are reported
directly on the front-panel backlit LCD display.
High/Low alarm settings are individually adjustable,
and are stored in non-volatile memory. These settings
are restored when the unit is next used. Indicator lights
and and an audible signal provide status indicators for
proper system operation. Measurements can be displayed
as continuous (fast) or peak end-tidal readings.
Measures and Standard Features

- Paramagnetic O2 analyzer
- Infrared CO2 analyzer
- Analog and RS232 outputs
- Expandable with additional function modules
- Sample Flow 150 - 200 ml per minute
Easy setup and operation
Typical operation requires only simple setup. The
small diameter sample tubing is connected to the animal's
endotracheal tube using the supplied fittings. All
alarm settings are adjusted with a single knob. Alarm
lights are always active, but an audible alarm can be
switched on or off as desired.
The gas and rate outputs are standardized for easy
external recording. The RS232 port provides simple
ASCII formatted data that can be received using any
communications software, and easily imported into a
spreadsheet for calculation.
The only maintenance required is periodic inspection
or replacement of the supplied moisture filters.
Special input tubing includes a Nafion® membrane that
automatically dries the sample gas for long, trouble-free
monitoring. A miniature in-line hydrophobic filter prevents
water from entering the analyzer.
The GEMINI monitor includes an open slot for use
with any SYSTEM 1000 instrumentation module.
Available modules include a cardiotachometer (Model
CT-1000), blood pressure amplifiers (Model PM-1000)
and many other signal acquisition and processing functions.
A plethysmographic respiration module (Model
RR-1000) uses closed-chamber pressure changes to
monitor respiratory rate for very small animals.
