Precise Dose Administration

NIAAA Contract for EtOH Administration

The NIH, NIAAA (National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism) needed a system to deliver regular doses of ethanol to animal subjects to study alcoholism.  BME Systems designed and built a system to evaporate the ethanol using only ambient air and control the related parameters for safe and accurate dose administration.  The schedule is driven by an industrial PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) 24/7/365.  During treatment, the EtOH level is closed-loop controlled with calibrated, primary sensors.  Data are collected in a local historian with all relevant parameters.

BME Systems is a US Government Prime Contractor. CAGE 64WT6.
