Calibration best practice in Standards

Infusion pumps, also known as syringe pumps, are used to automatically deliver critical fluids to patients at precisely programmed rates or intervals. When these devices are used to administer high-risk medications, inaccuracies in delivered flow rates can have significant safety implications; especially for drugs with narrow ...

Enabling a quantitative approach to cardiovascular disease diagnostics

Over a third of all deaths in the EU are caused by disorders of the heart or blood vessels collectively described as cardiovascular disease (CVD), making it the leading cause of mortality. As well as the significant social toll, CVD is also estimated to cost the EU economy around €210 billion a year. The current ‘gold standard’...

Metrology to protect the high voltage grid

Electrical losses are one of the main contributors to operational costs in power networks. To minimize this network operators are transitioning from high voltage alternating current (HVAC) to more efficient high voltage direct current (HVDC). Partial Discharge (PD) measurements, detailed in the international standard IEC 60270,...

Expanding European capability in small-scale magnetic field measurements

Technology based on the ‘Hall effect’, which determines magnetic field strength by measuring the voltages induced by electric current, accounted for more than 50% of the €1.7 billion global market for magnetic sensors in 2019. Magnetic measurements are important to ensure the correct placement of batteries or device performance...

Measurement traceability for 3D printing

More than 500 000 medical devices are on sale in Europe, generating around €51 billion annually and accounting for one third of the market worldwide. This sector could potentially benefit from the rapidly expanding additive manufacturing (AM) industry. Commonly known as 3D printing this technique could allow the low-cost fabric...

Expanded humidity measurement capabilities

Monitoring and control of humidity are essential requirements in a variety of Europe’s manufacturing industries. For example, humidity affects pharmaceutical and biochemical product quality and storage lifetimes. Most humidity sensors are based on capacitance measurement technologies that exhibit measurement drift, so regular ...
