Medtronic announced Thursday that the company has received a CE Mark for valve-in-valve procedures using its CoreValve and CoreValve Evolut transcatheter aortic valve implantation system.
A modular design enables infusion pump manufacturers to use a single sensor model in a variety of applications.
A company that works in pneumatic motion and fluid control technologies have released a new pressure regulator targeted at medical device manufacturers that want to ensure products deliver air or medical gases accurately even at low pressures and low flows. The RM1 pressure regulator is designed in accordance with relevant international standards and is available with both high and low flow options for matching regulator performance with application requirements.
A company that developes and produces drug and fluid access devices and components for the OEM healthcare market has developed an in-line check valve suited for medical device applications such as infusion therapy and enteral feeding. The A220-ADM16 acrylic valve features a preloaded, normally closed latex-free silicone diaphragm that allows flow in one direction while preventing flow in the opposite direction.
A new miniature proportional valve offers manufacturers of acute, sub-acute, and emergency or ambulatory care ventilators the advantages of a small footprint, low energy consumption, a long operational lifetime, and high accuracy. The Flatprop EQP valve occupies the same space as the manufacturer’s...
FDA says San Diego-based CareFusion 303 has initiated a Class 1 recall its Alaris Pump Module, Model 8100 (formerly Medley Pump Module) due to a risk that the pump module door keypad overlay may separate from the keypad assembly, which may cause serious adverse health consequences.
FDA announced in August that Baxter Healthcare (Deerfield, IL) had initiated a Class 1 recall of its Automix Automated Nutrition Compounder Systems due to incorrect key press responses caused by fluid entry into the device’s keypads.
A designer and manufacturer of precision engineered compressors and vacuum pumps found in medical systems offers a line of twin piston pumps and compressors designed to withstand the most demanding applications.
A company that provides pneumatic motion and fluid control technologies to the medical industry has introduced an inline pump for microfluidic handling that features a cartridge syringe that can be replaced on-site in just seconds with no tools required. Now users of clinical chemistry equipment...
A developer of fluid control systems for the medical industry has released microfluidic rocker valves. The valves come in sizes of 10, 16, and 22 mm and in two- and three-way versions. Their performance-to-size ratio allows them to be incoroprated into such portable medical devices as oxygen concentrators, dialysis equipment, and diagnostic instruments. The smallest version is available with orifices up to 1.6 mm wide and resistance to pressures as great as 73 psi.
