About Transonic Systems Inc.
Founded in 1983, Transonic Systems pioneered the first commercially viable use for transit-time ultrasound flowmetry in animal studies, now the gold standard flow measurement system for physiological research in mice to man. Innovation in Transonic's flowprobe design has enabled true blood flow measurement in vessels as small as the renal artery in a mouse, and as critical as a bypass graft in human open heart surgery. The increasing focus on Quality Outcomes has generated growing demand for Transonic Systems' clinical flow measurement devices that provide timely measurements of blood flow during cardiac, cerebrovascular, vascular, and transplant surgeries. Measurement of vascular access flow with the Transonic Hemodialysis Monitor has revolutionized dialysis care. "Transonic Inside" flowmeters have found uses in artificial heart implants, organ preservation devices and heart bypass pumps. Through steady technological refinements and close collaborations, Transonic maintains its position as the leading innovator in flow measurement technology. http://www.transonic.com/
