Software release: flexiWare 7.5

SCIREQ is proud to announce the release of flexiWare 7.5, the latest version of our Study Management and Experiment Control Software. flexiWare 7.5 is a major upgrade that adds several new and exciting features to the software.

Dose Response

Our latest software allows flexiVent users to rapidly generate dose response graphs as well as customizable pre/post graphs directly within the flexiWare software. This enables a visualization of differences between study groups virtually in real time as the study progresses, and it tremendously reduces the time required for post-processing and reporting.

Moreover, the new flexiWare 7.5 allows plotting responses to inhaled challenges against an estimate of the delivered (i.e. inhaled) drug dose rather than concentration of drug in the nebulizer. We will soon issue more details on this significant, important refinement for dose response studies involving aerosols .

Multi-Subject Extension Support

flexiWare 7.5 now fully supports the new flexiVent multi-subject extension (MSX) that permits studying up to four subjects simultaneously with a single flexiVent FX system. The software now seamlessly adapts ventilation and perturbation scaling as subjects are added or removed from the system, and new calibration methods and analyzers have been added to support the assessment of lung mechanics using transfer impedance.

Ventilation Enhancements

flexiWare 7.5 also introduces a number of enhancements to the control of mechanical ventilation for flexiVent users. We have added Pressure-Controlled Ventilation (PCV) as a new mode of ventilation that, when used with the MSX, allows standardization the inspiratory pressure across parallel subjects. For single-subject configurations, the software now offers a feature to control the delivered volume when using volume controlled ventilation patterns. This algorithm accounts for gas compression within the ventilator circuit to ensure that the subject is receiving the desired tidal volume with the best possible accuracy.

HOW DO YOU UPGRADE?

If your current flexiWare installation is covered under our Complete Care program, our Technical Support team will be happy to assist you in downloading and installing your free upgrade. Otherwise, please contact our sales team at sales@scireq.com for further details and pricing information.
