Baxa Corporation Launches Repeater Pump II With P2 Technology
December 03, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsLas Vegas, Nev., December 3, 2007 – Baxa Corporation announces its launch of the Repeater Pump II, designed to provide accurate delivery of pharmacy solutions into a variety of containers, without the need for calibration. The Repeater Pump II is the first no-calibration pharmacy pump, and uses a fixed-volume pumping design commonly referred to as ‘positive displacement.’ The positive displacement nature of the Repeater Pump II eliminates the need for calibration or adjustment, providing accurate liquid delivery regardless of source container, final container, tubing diameter and fluid viscosity.
“This next-generation pump builds on our experience with the market-leading Repeater Pump,” notes Product Manager Laura Zoerner. “Its vibrant touch screen makes it easy to use by eliminating buttons and knobs that can be hard to press. The product’s icons and colored graphics make controls easy-to-find and easy-to-use.” The Repeater Pump II incorporates a number of features that have been designed through user feedback and customer preference trials. These include snap-and-go tubeset installation and memory field recalls at the touch of a button, which makes it easy to get started and repeat common applications.
Baxa is demonstrating the capabilities of the new pump during the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists Midyear Clinical Meeting, the largest annual gathering of industry professionals, in Las Vegas, NV from December 3rd through December 5th, 2007.
At the Baxa exhibit, booth number 2106, pharmacists can see first-hand how the pump automatically adjusts to the viscosity of the fluid being pumped. Baxa representatives show the pump’s flexibility in handling IV or oral medications to and from bags, bottles, vials and syringes with efficiency and accuracy. The Repeater Pump II is anticipated for full commercialization in spring 2008.
