OBBA

OBBA is an optical analyzer used in conjunction with CB002 disposable plastic cuvette for measuring Hct%,  Sat%, Hb and blood temperature through optical non-invasive method.

This probe is designed to be utilized in any medical treatment involving extra-corporeal blood circulation. In particular, it can be used for ECLS (Extra-Corporeal Life Support) treatments with blood flow not greater than 0.8l/m. 

Features

Ranges

  • Hematocrit: 15 – 50 % Hct
  • Hemoglobin: 5-15 g/dl
  • Oxygen saturation: 40% –99% O2 Sat
  • Blood Temperature: 10 – 40 °C

 

Accuracy

  • Hematocrit: ± 5 Hct units (3σ)
  • Hemoglobin: ± 1.65 Hb (g/dl) (3σ)
  • Oxygen Saturation: ± 5 O2 Sat units (3σ)
  • Blood Temperature: ± 0.5 °C (3σ)

 

Resolution

  • Hematocrit: 0.1%
  • Hemoglobin: 0.1 g/dl
  • Oxygen Saturation: 0.1%
  • Blood Temperature: 0.1°C

Applications

  • Hemodialysis treatments (continous monitoring of the fluctuations of blood volume) 
  • Locoregional pharmacological therapies for the treatment of tumors (blood oxygeneation monitoring)
  • Respiratory assistance ARDS/ECMO (blood oxygeneation monitoring)
  • Organ preservation (blood oxygeneation monitoring)
  • Extracorporeal blood detoxification 
  • Plasmapheresis and blood donation (hematocrit monitoring)
