Temperature Measurement Option for All Isolated Organ Systems

PLUGSYS TCAM Module

Perfusate temperature can be measured in one of two ways:with the PLUGSYS Thermocouple Amplifier Module (TCAM) or using a handheld thermometer with a digital readout. The perfusate temperature is measured by inserting a thermocouple probe directly into the perfusion line (into the tubing.) All IPL systems are accurately thermostated. Temperature measurement is only necessary on studies using different temperatures, such as transplantation studies.

Perfusate temperature can be measured in any HSE isolated perfused organ system in one of two ways: with the PLUGSYS Thermocouple Amplifier Module (TCAM) or using a handheld thermometer with a digital readout. The perfusate temperature is measured by inserting a thermocouple probe directly into the perfusion line (into the tubing.)

  • Temperature Measurement with TCAM (73-1792) provides an analog output to record temperature changes with a Data Acquisition System.
  • Temperature Measurement with a Handheld Thermometer (73-4945) provides measurement on a digital display.

Choose either of the options above and add:

  • 52-1732 Copper Constantan Thermocouple Flexible Implantable Probe
  • 73-1911 Extension Cable for Thermocouples, 6 ft L
  • 73-4193 Adapter for inserting tip catheter, small temperature probe or PE catheter into left ventricle via aortic cannula (Tuohy Borst Adapter)

It is important to measure and monitor perfusate temperature. If too high, perfusate temperature will damage the cells; above 40oC, the heart will die.
