  • (1888PressRelease) July 27, 2019 - FISO Technologies is proud to present the innovative FOP-M200, a new compact sensor with a diameter of 200 microns and a fiber introduction of 100 microns. Because the size is smaller than any competing product, FISO has once again established new industry standards and positions itself as a global leader in fiber optic sensors and signal conditioners for medical, energy, process control and R&D applications.

    “We are pleased to introduce our customers and partners to the FOP-M200. The tiny footprint of the sensor head allows it to approach smaller blood vessels without limiting natural blood flow. Maximum diameter is reduced by 0.003”. The area is reduced more than 40%; able to accurately and truly measure pressure without disturbing the flow and without affecting the pressure. In addition, such a small footprint allows engineers to design drug delivery catheters and in-situ pressure measurements without limiting the flow of drugs within the lumen," said Audrey Quillin-Pul, a medical application specialist at FISO.

    FOP - M200 product features:
    Small lead fiber that allows the FOP-M200 to be mounted in a smaller cavity

    Very "soft/flexible" introduction; limits the negative impact on catheter/wire stiffness

    Same performance as previous generation products (high precision, low drift, thermal)

    Most suitable for EN60601-2-34 and BP-22 systems
    The same proven technology platform as FOP-MIV and FOP-M260 is sold and integrated in multiple FDA-approved devices

    Maxim Vachon-Savary, director of marketing at FISO, said innovation is a top priority for FISO, and the new op-m200 is the leading technology. “With such a small diameter, it is very soft and not easy to bend; medical device design engineers are not limited by sensors for the first time. The device delivers amazing pressure data while delivering excellent deliverability and support. The fiber has unique mechanical properties, good flexibility and inherent immunity to RF and millimeter waves, and has high application value and performance.
