In hemodialysis, medical standards require worldwide to monitor the devices for patients’ safety. Based on our experience with the special requirements of our customers in medical technology, we have developed the optical sensor BLD which monitors the dialysate and triggers an alarm as soon as smallest amounts of blood run into the dialysis fluid.
The blood leak detector is used where the transmittance of liquids has to be monitored. For this purpose, the wavelength and the response thresholds of the detector can be adapted easily. The default configuration has been optimized for the detection of blood in clear liquids and has been developed for the high sensitivity demands in dialysis.
The non-invasive sensor is characterized by the following features:
Compliant with the strict safety standard IEC 60601-1 3rd edition
Wavelength and evaluation ensure the detection of smallest amounts of blood in the dialysate
Optimal protection against ambient light
