KD Scientific has introduced its Ezflow 2030 portable syringe pump, designed to deliver small volumes with a linear flow rate of 1-99mm per hour with +/-2 per cent accuracy.
Flow rate ranges from 0.1 to 65ml per hour, depending on the syringe size and pump linear rate.
The syringe pump can accommodate a variety of plastic syringes from 1-60ml and its horizontal design protects the syringe barrel and allows single-handed loading.
It has a bolus function which allows the user to add a quarter of preset fluid by bolus cable, without interruption of current infusion at a minimum of 30-minute intervals.
There are two audible and visual alarms, complete occlusion and low battery.
The system uses three AA batteries and battery life is 30 days or more than 30 syringes at intermediate flow.
It can also operate on a DC 4.5V power supply and comes complete with bolus cable, syringe-cover protector, leather case and batteries.
