Technologies for infusion pump improvement and calibration (TIPICAL)

The objective of the TIPICAL project is to enhance the benefits of infusion systems such as pumps and bags. By developing flow sensors for real-time diagnostic purposes, a calibration method to accurately calibrate the infusion pumps, and a transfer standard to travel between the calibration laboratories and the point-of-use safety and precision in medical infusion systems will be significantly improved.

The TIPICAL project is funded through the EUROSTARS Programme and performed in close cooperation with Bronkhorst High-Tech B.V. and BioFluidix GmbH.
