The Alpha Wireless pH Monitoring Capsule is the newest advance in ambulatory reflux monitoring. The small pH Capsule is fixed to the oesophageal mucosa, above the LOS, via vacuum suction using a straightforward delivery device with a simple 3 step, slide and click process, reducing the risk of issues with either deployment or attachment.
The capsule has improved data integrity as data is temporarily stored in the capsule before transmission to the recorder and offers up to 96 hours of monitoring, allowing for 4 full days of acid detection.
The capsule will then naturally drop from the mucosa and be excreted out. Manufactured with a dry reference electrode resulting in a longer shelf life.
