Revolutionary Infusion Pump Development
The patented infusion pump, known as Quantex , interface electronics, software operating system and user interface was designed by Design Consultants to exacting standards and rigorous cost targets.
Quantex uses an innovative rotary mechanism to achieve the continuous flow of liquids pumped through it. The new mechanism is highly accurate, as it is not sensitive to pressure and temperature effects, and it is also significantly more cost-effective than existing peristaltic, syringe and diaphragm pumps on the market. The Quantex pump has one moving disposable part, which can be easily replaced, whereas conventional pumps can have many moving parts, which are highly toleranced and subject to wear, making maintenance difficult and costly.
Quantex is currently developing the pump for use in intravenous infusions (drip lines) and will be conducting technical trials of a demonstrator prototype with St Bartholomew's Hospital, London. The Quantex pump also attracted strong interest when it was showcased at the Medical Device Technology Exhibition, the leading exhibition for the medical device and in vitro diagnostics (IVD) industry, held recently in Birmingham.
