Quark SPIRO

Modular Spirometry Laboratory with additional bronchial challenge, airways resistance and forced oscillations tests

  • Quark SPIRO is a modern modular laboratory for complete spirometry testing, with easy-to-add advanced test features like forced oscillation technique, integrated dosimeter and airway resistance.

    Modularity allows to configure Quark SPIRO according to any kind of requirement. This cost-effective solution gives the opportunity to scale at any time to a more complex configuration.

    Low maintenance costs, no need for technical expertise and user-friendly software, make Quark SPIRO the perfect tool for accurate, frequent and reliable spirometry tests in any hospital department or physician’s office.

    Quark SPIRO includes both standard calibration procedures and advanced calibration procedures to verify accuracy, including pneumotach linearization and verification of all flowmeters (turbine, PNT). Latest technology in flowmeters (available choice between turbine or pneumotach) and other hardware components guarantee accurate measurements and fast test procedures.
  • Key Features
    True modular design architecture. Modularity allows to configure Quark SPIRO according to any kind of requirement. This cost-effective solution gives the opportunity to scale at any time to a more complex configuration.

    Flowmeters choice. Quark SPIRO can be configured either with multi-use pneumotach (X9) or with multi-use digital turbine.

    Powered by OMNIA. COSMED has developed a contemporary, simple and ergonomic software interface with intuitive workflow and hierarchy. OMNIA is based on standard SQL database to store unlimited data securely and guaranteeing lifetime data ownership.

    Simplified workflow. OMNIA user interface and its workflow management have been designed to simplify procedures and to reduce testing time.

    Quick and easy calibration procedures. Quark SPIRO includes both standard calibration procedures and advanced calibration procedures to verify accuracy, including Pneumotach linearization and verification of all flowmeters (turbine, PNT).

    Automatic interpretation of tests based on latest scientific guidelines. OMNIA is supported by a powerful algorithm that automatically process results and provides interpretation text strings, including numerical results and graphical data presentation (pictograms).

    Network ready. OMNIA is available both as a single stand-alone workstation or in a client/server configuration for small or very large network environments.
