The AMEGAS system can be used to monitor nitrogen dioxide (NO2) as well as a wide range of other gases and contaminants in the medical industry.
This modular system can be used as a permanent monitor or as a portable point to point periodic checker ideal for pharmacopoeia compliance. Using the latest sensor technology with the required accuracies users can monitor the following: oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2), volatile organic compounds (VOC), dewpoint (H2O), carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitric oxide (NO). There is also a sample port to conduct an oil mist test, the unit also datalogs and has MODBUS.
Nitrogen dioxide is toxic by inhalation so it is a vital part of pharmacopoeia standards as a contaminant which must be monitored to ensure the safety of patients who are being administered a medical gas.
Up until the AMEGAS was available common practice was to use colorimetric tube systems and/or a selection of gas detection systems. Users can now monitor continually with one system and achieve the accuracies required in the standards.
As the AMEGAS is provided in a robust carry case on wheels it can be used to either check multiple locations or set up permanently either free standing or in an equipment rack meaning that it suits the requirements of individual hospitals and QC Pharmacists charged with checking the medical gases.
