RJC Enterprises, LLC Your OEM Supplier of Fiber Optic Sensors For Medicine

Current RJC Fiber Optic Sensor Users

The Fabry-Pérot Pressure Sensor has been manufactured and sold for industrial applications since 1988, and for medical applications since 1993. The first approved medical application was for measuring intracranial pressure (Integra NeuroCare) – over many days and weeks – in comatose patients, a demanding application where sensor/system stability and accuracy were very important.

There are a number of RJC customers actively working on specialty vascular and intracranial applications, and these new products will be described once they are approved and released to the clinical market.


In 2003, Arrow/Teleflex began using RJC sensors/systems in their Intra Aortic Balloon Pump (IABP) product line. In this product line, the RJC Model 60 Fiber Optic Pressure Sensor is installed in the distal tip of the Arrow® Intra Aortic Balloon Catheter to record aortic pressure waveforms.

To support the RJC Fiber Optic Pressure Sensor, the RJC Model 645 Fiber Optic Measurement Assembly is installed in the Arrow® WAVE® IABP and is a critical component in this pump. The recently released Arrow® AC3 Optimus™ IABP continues to use RJC pressure sensors/systems to provide intra-beat inflation timing accuracy across the broadest range of patient conditions — including those with severe arrhythmias1.
