MicroEye®

Continuous, real-time blood sampling – without removing whole blood

MicroEye® transforms point-of-care blood sampling from ‘point in time’ to automated continuous monitoring of a vast range of potential analytes, for improved outcomes in critical care.

  • Easy-to-use device inserted using common peripheral venous catheters.
  • Delivers dialysate to an external sensor system; blood stays in the patient.
  • Provides real-time data to standalone monitors, bedhead array systems or hospital information systems.
  • Use with ContinuMon® for accurate monitoring of glucose or lactate.
  • Concurrent collection of samples for offline analysis.

What can I Monitor?

The range of substances that can be monitored using the MicroEye® is vast including:

  • Electrolytes (potassium, magnesium)
  • Energy metabolites (glucose, lactate, pyruvate)
  • Amino acids (glutamate, GABA)
  • Hormones and neurotransmitters (dopamine, serotonin (5-HT))
  • Inflammatory mediators and growth factors (cytokines)
  • Drugs and their metabolites (unbound ‘free’)
