Crowborough, UK, 23rd October 2014 – Hummingbird Sensing Technology, a leading manufacturer of gas sensing technologies for medical and industrial markets, has signed a multi-year agreement with Beijing-based Aeonmed, one of the leading Chinese manufacturers of Anesthesia Machine and Critical Care ventilators.

The Hummingbird Micro paramagnet sensor, selected for its high reliability, non-depleting and environmental safe design and cost effectiveness to the end user has been designed into Aeonmed’s new high-end anesthesia machine 8700A, which recently received regulatory approval and launched into the Chinese market and is CE marked for EU clinical requirements.

This is a further example of how the development of Hummingbird’s innovative paramagnetic sensors for greater flexibility and easier integration in line with advances in medical equipment design is benefitting Hummingbird’s OEM medical manufacturing partners.

Hummingbird’s general manager, Dominic Corsale, said: “This is another multi-year agreement with a manufacturer of critical medical equipment that has recognized the value of our paramagnetic sensors in terms of quality and longevity – our non-depleting design will last the entire lifetime of Aeonmed’s anesthesia machine. We are pleased to further expand our presence in the Chinese anesthesia market and look forward to a long-term partnership with Aeonmed.”
