Em-tec Announces Release of SonoTT aQuila System

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., March 27, 2024 /PRNewswire/ – Em-tec, part of PSG and Dover (NYSE: DOV), announced the introduction of the new SonoTTTM aQuila System, its latest innovation in the field of non-invasive blood flow measurement for life-sustaining, extracorporeal treatments.

The SonoTT aQuila Flow Measurement System is designed to advance the safety and quality of flow-measurement applications during a variety of medical treatments, such as extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), the use of a heart-lung machine (HLM), apheresis, (hemo)dialysis, and distal perfusion. Extracorporeal applications where blood that was removed from the body and is oxygenated often provide important cardiac support to keep a patient alive. Consequently, it is necessary to adapt liquid-bearing life-sustaining applications to the needs of the respective therapy and patient.

“We are excited to launch the new SonoTT aQuila System, which represents the next-generation technology that allows us to better serve our existing and new customers and open up strategically important markets,” said Christian Steer, Director of Product Management at Em-tec.

The features of the SonoTT aQuila System allow:

  • Early detection of complications or anomalies that may occur during an extracorporeal procedure, including clogged filters and inadequate blood flow;
  • Quicker detection of changes in the current flow rate that may indicate deterioration of the circulation condition; and
  • Recording of blood flow measurements that can be transferred to an electronic patient file for easy access to detailed patient documentation.

Stand-alone sensor technology, such as that offered by Em-tec's new SonoTT aQuila System, can be flexibly used for the independent measurement and display of blood flow values, resulting in enhanced safety and quality in a wide variety of treatment methods in which blood flow monitoring is vital.

The innovative SonoTT aQuila System was developed at the Finning site in Germany. It is produced exclusively there and supports the company’s position as an attractive innovation hub and versatile high-tech employer in the region.
