Micro Medical, now part of CareFusion, has been developing Spirometers for over 20 years. Spirometry is Micro Medical's major field of research and development and is dedicated to continually improving the design and specification of instruments has kept us as world leaders in this field. Micro Medical has also built an impressively wide range of instruments, catering for every application from basic spirometry testing to long term unsupervised home trials, also specialise in producing custom designs and software for major world-wide pharmaceutical trials.

Micro Medical products are key to the diagnosis and management of COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), Asthma, Bronchitis, Emphysema, Cystic Fibrosis, Lung Cancer and other respiratory system diseases.  Our comprehensive range of products also includes CO monitors for use in smoking cessation programmes and PulseTrace for cardiovascular assessment.  Our latest developments in respiratory muscle strength and endurance measurements offer a breakthrough in pulmonary rehabilitation.

The Gold Standard transducer from Micro Medical gives you the most reproducible volume measurements for your COPD & Asthma patients. Especially effective at low flows, it complies with all current ATS and other recognised international standards for accuracy. It means that Micro Medical’s world beating spirometers are the definitive benchmark for accurate respiratory measurement - bar none. Micro Medical as the leading supplier of spirometry equipment in the UK & Ireland have recognised that the existing American Thoracic Society standards may appear inadequate for the very low flow profiles generated by severe COPD patients.  In response to this Micro Medical has undertaken an extensive research and development program to improve still further the performance of it's digital volume transducer culminating in the new Gold standard version.

This new digital Volume transducer incorporates the existing advantages of inherent stability(1) and the virtual immunity from the effects of pressure, humidity and temperature(2,3).The new transducer is the perfect measuring device for spirometry in patients with all types of chest disease.  An improvement of over 40% in accuracy as well as improved linearity at these critical low flows combined with the new advanced software has produced the new definitive Gold Standard that other existing Spirometer transducers now need to achieve.  The documented inaccuracies of the unheated fleish and wedge-bellows spirometers make the new Gold Standard spirometers from Micro Medical the devices of choice for COPD measurements.

Micro Medical spirometers have been tested independently throughout the world. They have been used on mission critical work where the failure of the instrument could lead to projects having to be cancelled. All around the world Micro Medical instruments have been proved as leaders in their field.

Micro Medical makes some of the smallest spirometry recording instruments in the world. Combining features that previously would only be found in instruments many times their size, Micro Medical uses advanced electronic design and manufacturing techniques to make the instrument as light and portable as possible.
