Alpha Technics Selected to Design Sensor for Joint FDA and University of Maryland Scientific Study
Date:10/1/2013

Irvine, Calif. (PRWEB) October 01, 2013

Alpha Technics, an industry leader in the field of precision thermal temperature systems measurement, was selected to design a rapid response sensor for a joint FDA and University of Maryland study on the monitoring of human body temperature.

The objective of the study was to evaluate the speed of response and differences in ultimate temperature measurement when a very fast response sensor is inserted into a true body cavity, such as the mouth, as opposed to “pseudo” body cavities, like the armpit or palm. Alpha Technics designed a custom-made temperature probe to aid in the joint study between the FDA and the University of Maryland.

For this study, which was presented at the American Society of Mechanical Engineering 2013 Bioengineering Conference, a very rapid response sensor was required that could withstand the physical demands of application in and on the body and cleaning in between uses. The sensor also needed to be well insulated from the external ambient environment so as to accurately reflect the temperature of the tissue block being measured. In addition, the sensing system required a relatively high speed (seven times per second) and very high resolution (0.001 °C) instrument to capture the time response and to differentiate differences in group data.

“Alpha Technics was pleased to work with the FDA and the University of Maryland to design a temperature measurement device that met the unique and precise needs of their study,” notes Lisa Marie Ryan, President, Alpha Technics Inc. “Alpha Technics designs a wide variety of temperature measurement systems and devices, including temperature probes, temperature sensors and sensor components, to meet the strict needs of customers in highly specialized industries."

Alpha Technics has the ability to design precise and highly accurate temperature measurement devices for commercial uses. Its clients include companies in the biotech/life sciences, HVAC, medical/disposable and general industrial industries.
