Our scope of supply includes fully packaged sensor and transducer assemblies. The sensors can either be selected from our standardised design range, or more frequently customised to suit specific OEM needs.
Our dedicated design team is able to develop custom solutions for a wide range of applications that fully meet the customer’s requirements, and these designs can be manufactured in our ISO13485 certified factory based in Southampton, England.
Typical applications for our sensors and transducers range from dialysis equipment, infusion and insulin pumps to contrast injectors, nebulisers to chamber empty detection, liquid dispensing.
Award-winning Opharmic technology and CeramTec ceramics enable non-invasive drug delivery
Opharmic Technology (HK) Ltd. has developed a transformational ultrasonic non-invasive ocular drug delivery device with the goal of replacing intravitreal injections. The Hong Kong-based start-up is partnering with CeramTec to develop and produce the highpower transducer that enables the technology.
CeramTec with innovative service suite for high power ultrasonic surgery transducers
When it comes to ultrasonic transducers for medical applications, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. With vertical integration from manufacture of advanced piezoceramics to the assembly of ultrasonics sensors and transducers, technical ceramics specialist CeramTec meets the increasing demand for specified high power langevin transducers.
Future proofing medical devices with advanced ultrasonic technology
In recent years, the medical device sector has seen increasing demand for smaller, more portable devices in response to various challenges the healthcare sector is facing. In this market environment, collaboration between medical device companies and highly specialised component manufacturers is key to provide tailormade solutions.
• Dry couple to rigid or flexible, disposible or reusable chambers
• Multiple levels can be detected on chambers of any size with the minimum and maximum levels as close as 4mm apart
• Pulse echo or through-beam (transmit and receive) technology, depending on the complexity of the chamber
• Multiple levels can be monitored using a single sensor block
• Detects foam as air, unlike capacitive sensors which detect foam as liquid
• Not affected by liquid or chamber colour
• Highly temperature stable
Our custom ultrasonic air-in-line sensors can be designed to suit a variety of plastic tubing, commonly used in medical equipment. The quality of our designs and the high performance of our piezo materials mean that bubble sizes down to four microlitres in volume or just two millimetres in diameter, can be detected.
Our ultrasonic therapy transducers deliver ultrasound waves at 1MHz and 3.3MHz. The material in contact with the skin can be certified as biocompatible, meaning they are suitable for a variety of applications.
Transducers can be configured to a range of frequencies depending on application, drawing from a broad range of housing materials for a variety of treatment modalities. We can work with your engineers and designers to produce a package that achieves your technical aesthetic, ergonomic and regulatory requirements.
