The new FlowSens system from Guerbet is an innovative solution for the injection of contrast agents and saline solution in CT imaging. It includes a dual soft bag injector (class IIb, CE marked), a complete range of associated disposables (class IIa, CE marked) and services. The injector is adapted to single or multi-patient markets, mono or bi-liquid uses. It is available in pedestal or ceiling-mounted versions.
Presented for the first time at the recent ECR meeting this unique, innovative solution enables Guerbet to broaden its range in the field of medical equipment and devices for diagnostic imaging market.
CE Marked in the first quarter of 2014, FlowSens will initially be marketed in Europe (first in Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland) then gradually in other regions of the world.
FlowSens and its associated disposables are designed to fit seamlessly into the organization of radiology services. Ergonomic and easy-to-use, FlowSens aims at meeting the practical requirements of radiologists and radiographers.
Composed of a soft bag injector, a complete range of associated disposables and services, the FlowSens solution is the only one on the market which combines a hydraulic syringe-free injection system with intuitive usage and safeguarding of procedures at every stage of the injection. FlowSens is compatible with ScanBag and all types of contrast agent available on the market.
Guerbet Group CEO Yves L’Epine declared “We are very pleased to make available to radiology professionals a contrast agent injection solution which is the only one of its type in the world, developed in France by the Guerbet Group subsidiary Medex. This launch is in line with the Guerbet Group’s strategy of diversification into medical devices linked to the use of our contrast agents for diagnostic and/or interventional radiology”.
FlowSens targets a market segment with high growth potential. Its syringe-free hydraulic injection system and its clear advantages distinguish it from the existing competitors’ offering (syringe & peristaltic based systems).
