microQuark - PC-based Spirometer
microQuark is the PC-based spirometer designed by COSMED for lung function screening. It can be used with any PC, either desktop or laptop, by simply installing the application software and connecting the USB cable to the USB port of the computer. Performing spirometry tests is extremely easy and intuitive with microQuark and OMNIA, the new generation software developed by COSMED, which is included in the standard package. Fast, simple and cost effective spirometry screening is now available to all users.
Plug and play technology. microQuark can be used with any PC, either desktop or laptop, by simply installing the application software and connecting the USB cable to the USB socket of the computer.
Validated Digital Turbine Flowmeter. Independently validated turbine flowmeter by LDS Hospital using the ATS 24 standard volume-time waveforms (Crapo R. O. 2004 “Validation of COSMED turbine vs ATS 24 standard volume-time waveforms“).
Powered by OMNIA. OMNIA allows intuitive, immediate spirometry testing with advanced text interpretation and graphical tools for quick assessment. Includes new standards and predicteds according to latest ATS/ERS guidelines (2005 Consensus, GLI, etc).
Pediatric Incentivation. Possibility to perform spirometry test with a selection of innovative pediatric incentivation graphics with user defined effort grade on both volume and flow (both PEF and FVC predicteds).
Simplified workflow. OMNIA user interface and its workflow management have been designed to simplify procedures and to reduce testing time.
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.
