Cosmed microQuark turns any laptop or a PC into a lung function analyzer complete with software

Cosmed microQuark is the new spirometer designed by COSMED for lung function screening. 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 port. The great advantage of this product is the new software developed to allow any user to manage reliable screening spirometry in a simple and quick way.

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“).

Pediatric Incentives

Possibility to perform spirometry test with a selection of innovative pediatric incentive graphics with user defined effort grade on both volume and flow (both PEF and FVC predicteds).

Powered by OMNIA Software

OMNIA allows intuitive 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).

OMNIA is supported by a powerful algorithm that automatically process results and provides interpretation text strings, including numerical results and graphical data presentation (pictograms).

OMNIA is available both as a single stand-alone workstation or in a client/server configuration for small or very large network environments.
