Infusion studies on large animal species such as dogs and NHPs are typically conducted with a small infusion pump in the pocket of a specially-fitted jacket. The pump draws from a drug bag sized to the test article
Weighing only 180g, our OrchesTA™ model 500 peristaltic pump is one of the smallest ambulatory pumps on the market. The versatile pump can deliver flow rates from 0.1 to 100ml per hour and works with drug bags from 50 to 300ml in capacity. Battery life is approximately 1L.
Combine the model 500 with jackets from Lomir Biomedical and ports and infusion sets from Ava Biomedical for a complete system. Group housing of jacketed animals is possible as demonstrated in posters from Charles River Laboratories Montreal and Citoxlab France at the 2018 Society of Toxicology.
Connect the model 500 pump with a cable to an OrchesTA™ pump transceiver to control and monitor your infusion study remotely using OrchesTA™ Infusion Automation software — limit human interaction with the animals, automate repetitive tasks and reduce the opportunities for programming and documentation errors.
