DLCO Simulator Calibration Gas
A reference gas standard with known concentration is required for TSANZ accreditation. This product comes with three different gas compositions, DLCO LOW, DLCO MID and DLCO HIGH.
Single-breadth DLCO instruments can occasionally suffer from normal drift in the gas analyser output, which affects the instrument’s reference values. Therefore, it is essential to periodically calibrate the instrument with an accurate representative gas sample to achieve consistently high DLCO accuracy and high result reproducibility. This in turn will allow the health practitioner to more accurately diagnose the patient’s lung condition and to provide better patient assessment during follow-up tests.
This quality control is simplified with the use of a DLCO simulator along with Coregas DLCO calibration gas standards, which are:
