Cortex Disposable Turbines

Replacement box of 100 Turbines

Since the disposable turbines were introduced, they have established themselves in the market far beyond our expectations.  This is for a replacement box of 100, you will need to have already bought the new mask adapter and opto-electronics too.

Like many of our customers, you too can benefit from the advantages of the disposable turbine. Switch now!

An overview of your advantages:

  • Pre-calibrated (saving volume calibration time).
  • Individually wrapped
  • No sterilisation required
  • Resource saving – no need for a 3L Calibration syringe.


Cortex Disposable Turbines

The disposable turbine option was established in 2019 whilst we were in a pandemic, as an option to carry out CPET testing with minimal risk. This option can give users a faster turnaround time for back-to-back testing, and can be a more cost-effective solution depending on the user’s requirements.


The disposable turbine is already calibrated for you. The Cortex CPET software automatically detects the using of the disposable turbine, the calibration can be executed, but is not applied here.

Disposal of the Turbine

Once you have completed your CPET test, the disposable turbine can be disposed off in your regular mixed waste. They are only intended for single use, so they must not be reused.

Take special care when disposing the turbine when used on a highly infected patient.


Even though it is unnecessary to disinfect the disposable turbine, it is important to make sure the mask, mask adapter and electronics housing are thoroughly cleaned and then disinfected. Mask and mask adapter do not have to be separated.

Remove the opto-electronics for cleaning, then discard of the turbine. With the opto-electronics aside, place the remaining parts into a sterilising solution. We recommend you do not leave the components in the solution for any longer that 5 minutes. Then leave the components to dry naturally at room temperature.

The system components must be cleaned as well as disinfected, otherwise encapsulation of protein residues can occur, which can lead to pathogens being transmitted.


To ensure accurate measurements you must update the Cortex CPET device to the current firmware (V1.03.14 or above) before using the flow sensor with disposable turbine for the first time (see hardware manual).
