May 18, 2006 - Utilizing piezo resonance technology, ExOsense(TM) Sensors monitor presence or absence of fluids from outside of plastic containers used by medical diagnostic instrument manufacturers. Units offer calibration-free installation, affix via self-adhesive disc, and sense fluid regardless of color. Applications include reagents, waste, diluents, detergent/wash, coolants, saline, and pure water contained in opaque, translucent, or transparent plastic reservoirs.

The New ExOsense(TM) Non-Intrusive Liquid Level Sensor: Sensing From Outside Plastic Containers

PLAINVILLE, CT. Gems Sensors & Controls introduces the new ExOsense(TM) non-intrusive liquid level sensor. ExOsense sensors utilize patented piezo resonance technology to monitor fluids from the outside of plastic containers-extensively used by medical diagnostic instrument manufacturers.

ExOsense attach to the outside surface of plastic bottles or containers and detect the presence or absence of fluid opposite the sensors. ExOsense offers easy, calibration-free installation for instant sensing -it simply affixes via a self-adhesive disc by peeling and sticking to the container.

"We developed ExOsense specifically to solve a need that In Vitro Diagnostic OEMs consistently requested," said Evan Berns, Vice President, Gems Sensors & Controls. "Our focus is to eliminate fluid contamination while improving instrument uptime and maximizing container volume. The ExOsense product design and technology allows for maximum configurability to quickly and robustly fulfill the broad range of product specifications presented by medical OEMs."

ExOsense incorporates proprietary Gems transducer technology employing piezoelectric material and the principal of acoustic impedance mismatch. When piezoelectric material is excited, it creates an acoustic signal as a function of the natural resonance of the material. This signal is directed through the bottle wall and the strength of reflected pulse is sensed by the ExOsense solid-state circuitry to determine the presence of fluid opposite the sensor.

Designed with diagnostic instruments in mind, the ExOsense senses fluid-regardless of color, such as reagents, waste, diluents, detergent/wash, coolants, saline and pure water-contained in opaque, translucent, or transparent plastic reservoirs.
