Frequently Asked


What is the calibration period of IBP sensors and meters?

The calibration period is one year. We recommend to double check the conductivity once per month with a
conductivity reference solution. If biological material grows inside the cell, it could interfere the accuracy
of the conductivity measurement.

We know that competing companies do not recommend a monthly test of the conductivity measurement,
some even offer this as a "feature" of their meters. From our more than 25 years experience in developing
dialysis meters we strongly recommend monthly testing as a safeguard precaution.

  If I send my sensor or meter in for calibration, what must I included in my shipment?

As the conductivity electrode is part of the calibration process, it must be included with the meter.
If your meter has a flow probe, it must also be included with your shipment. There is no need to
ship the battery charger or other accessories.

  Why do IBP Conductivity Sensors allow you to select the Temperature Coefficient of the Dialysis Machine to be calibrated?

This is a frequently misunderstood topic that is often neglected in hemodialysis.
