PLUGSYS Oxygen Partial Pressure Module (OPPM)
Used to measure oxygen concentrations with CLARK-style electrodes in biological fluids of isolated perfused organs
The Oxygen Partial Pressure Module (OPPM) is a polarographic amplifier for the PLUGSYS system. It is used to continuously measure oxygen concentrations with CLARK-style electrodes.
The main application is recording of pO2 concentrations in biological fluids, e.g. perfusate or effluent of isolated perfused organs, using the corresponding electrodes e.g. Mini Oxygen Electrode.
The digital display indicates either electrode polarization voltage, O2 concentration as percent or mmHg or the electrode current. The input circuit of the module includes an isolation amplifier (potential separation between sensing electrode and circuit ground of the PLUGSYS measuring system) to avoid measurement problems due to ground loops.
