Sensors continue to play a key role in medical technology with the goal of making medical devices safer and even more effective, and at the same time simplifying their operation. First Sensor has been a long-standing manufacturer and supplier of sensor system solutions for medical technology, and hence it is well placed to understand the applications of customers.

At First Sensor, customers can find both the standard and ideal sensor system solution for their measuring tasks. Sensors represent the key components for the reliability and quality of customers’ products and solutions. This is the reason why First Sensor takes great care in its development, production and service activities – working according to certified procedures and processes. With EN ISO 13485 certification, the company complies with the high requirements for medical products. Geared to the highest quality standards, First Sensor has become one of the top providers of sensor solutions for measuring flow, pressure, oxygen, liquid level, radiation, light and acceleration.

It is a well-known fact that medical technology saves lives and First Sensors are aware of the complex measuring tasks and challenges involved. The highly sensitive ultra-low pressure sensors developed by First Sensor can detect the abrupt occurrence of even mild slight spontaneous breathing, thereby helping to keep the patient‘s respiratory effort as minor as possible. First Sensor’s flow sensors can measure quickly and detect the flow direction. They are suited for portable devices.

The company also offers flexible capacitive liquid level sensors that can be used by customers to measure in a non-contact and thus sterile way. Finally, the wide range of photodiodes from First Sensor provides both fast and sensitive measurements of visible, infrared and ultraviolet light as well as ionizing radiation.

First Sensor provides customized sensors, systems and solutions that are developed and manufactured to meet customers’ requirements. This can range from basic modification of a standard product to the development of an integrated system with various components or the development of an entirely new unique sensor. Customers can contact the company’s sales and development engineers before they adapt the design, specifications and functionality of their applications to current standard sensors at significant time and effort.
