A new wave of breast pump manufacturers is challenging industry leaders with smart, compact, user-friendly designs.
Smiths Medical is scrambling to address cybersecurity risks involving its wireless infusion pump, a type of device that is particularly vulnerable to attack.
As medical devices get smaller, valves are evolving to suit OEMs' needs. Frank Vinluan This Koganei PVR media isolation valve has less than 35 mL of dead space, which is important for ensuring accuracy and repeatability in laboratory and testing equipment. As medical devices...
As medical devices require smaller pumps that fulfill rigorous design requirements, the relationship between OEMs and suppliers is shifting.
A syringe pump driven by a servomotor outperforms standard stepper motor–driven syringe pumps in microdispense lab applications.
Although their core technology is relatively simple, solenoid valves are getting smarter and more versatile, opening up more avenues for medical device designers.
Micropumps are part of the panoply of medical device technologies that are enabling the trend toward miniaturization. A case in point is the mp6 diaphragm micropump from Bartels Mikrotechnik GmbH (Dortmund, Germany). Used in drug-delivery and infusion-pump applications, the pump transports tiny...
With increasing medical device miniaturization, micropumps are pressuring their way into portable and wound-care applications.
Multiport Manifold The MultiPort manifold from Halkey-Roberts Corp. provides a simple way to connect multiple IV fluid delivery systems, including systems of the gravity drip, syringe push, and pump types. to ensure that fluids are delivered to the patient safely, the manifold is designed to offer...
First it was leaky battery damage. Now it is pressure sensor calibration drift. For the second time this year, the FDA has classified a Hospira recall of its GemStar Infusion System as Class I, which means there is potential for significant injury or death related to the device. Two separate,...
