SFT-1000 Heart Valve Steady Flow System
The SFT-1000 heart valve steady flow hydrodynamic test system is another revolutionary test instrument from BDC Laboratories. The SFT-1000 achieves all ISO 5840 outlined test conditions for both forward flow pressure drop and back flow leakage assessment in a streamlined and extremely efficient manner. The SFT-1000 is available either in a manual configuration or as a fully automated apparatus. When fully automated, testing of a heart valve to all forward flow and back flow conditions takes only minutes.
The accompanying Statys® SFT control and monitoring software provides a comprehensive interface to program all the specific forward flow and back pressure test conditions. With high fidelity closed-loop pump control, the SFT-1000 steady flow test system then will automatically execute each condition and automatically cycle through all until the heart valve prosthesis evaluation is complete. An automated pdf-format report is generated upon completion of a test to provide clear and error-free documented results.
