The TM 8000 Flex is a high precision device for the equilibration of blood and aqueous solutions over an extended temperature range (20°C – 39.9°C). The TM 8000 Flex expands on the current advantages of the TM 8000 with an innovative active heating and cooling system, enabling reliable tonometry of samples deviating from 37°C. Best performance is achieved using the MEON High Precision Gas Mixing Sytem (HP-GMS).
