The TM 8000 is a high precision device for the equilibration of blood and aqueous solutions within a very short time. High precision thermostatic and rotation-speed control provide high stability and reproducibility. The operation, cleaning and disinfection steps are extremely user friendly and safe. The high sample volume of 8 ml allows a high number of analysis on the target instruments per run. Best performance is achieved using the MEON High Precision Gas Mixing System (HP-GMS).
