A NATURAL PROCESS
THAT LEAVES NO TRACES AND CAN BE REPEATED
THE ADVANTAGES OF CO2 OVER CONTRAST AGENTS
UNLIMITED AMOUNT OF INJECTIONS POSSIBLE
With conventional contrast agent injectors, at each injection, the iodine will accumulate in the patient’s body and will need hours to be eliminated through the kidneys. It is a lengthy process that is not completed during the surgery. With CO2 injectors, the CO2 is eliminated at each circulation cycle when the blood reaches the lungs.
This means that you can do as many CO2 injections as you need if you respect to the timing of blood circulation (which depends on the injection site) and the capacity of the patient’s lungs. With the INX-1000A you can even program periodical automatic injections for the whole duration of the surgery, as long as you remain in the patient’s capacity to naturally eliminate the CO2
This is especially useful during long angiography surgeries in interventional radiology, where you may need to do a lot of image acquisitions.
LOWER VISCOSITY VISCOSITY, IMPROVED IMAGE QUALITY
Carbon dioxide has a lower viscosity in comparison to iodine-based contrast agents. This characteristic allows CO2 to effectively penetrate the finest vessels within the vascular system, resulting in enhanced image detail and enabling the visualization of vessels that may remain imperceptible when using conventional contrast agents.
NO SIDE EFFECTS
Using CO2 has no side effect and it is quickly eliminated once the blood circulates through the lungs. This is particularly important for patients that have allergy to iodine content agents or patients that have kidneys deseases or failure.
LESS X-RAYS NEEDED
CO2 has a lower density and produces images in negative contrast. This lower density allows for the acquisition of images with reduced X-ray dosage, improving patient safety and health.
CO2 has a very low cost compared to any contrast agent, resulting in lower operate costs.
QUICK PURGE SYSTEM
AUTOMATIC GUIDED AND USER FRIENDLY PROCESS
Automatic guided user friendly purge process in 7 steps. Between one and two minutes for the achievement of the 7 steps.
After the purge, the users will be sure to have 100% CO2 in the machine and in the line, effectively eliminating any traces of the physiological solution and residual gases. Once this process is complete, the machine is ready to safely inject a new patient.
The CO2 content in the INX-1000A and the patient line is monitored in real time by an electronic high precision CO2/air analysis sensor.
DIFFERENT INJECTION MODES
FLOW RATE MODE
Automatically calculate the injection time
When you set a volume and a flow rate, the INX-1000A will automatically adjust the injection time.
When you set a volume and an injection time, the INX-1000A will automatically adust the injection flow rate.
CONSTANT FLOW RATE
CONSTANT FLOW RATE AND HIGH PRECISION
Constant flow rate injection and low flow rate injection with 1 ml/s precision. Other CO2 injectors available on the market do not manage the regulation of the flow rate.
This is an essential feature to adapt the flow to the procedure, particularly to the size of the vessel. Small vessels have lower blood circulation speed. If you are targeting the contrast of extremities or small vessels, it is necessary to have a long injection with a low flow rate. Controlling the flow rate is also a necessary and safety-critical feature when injecting close to parts sensitive to the creation of bubbles.
REAL TIME INJECTION GRAPH
You can use this graph to visualize the injection process accurately, providing real-time status updates, including the start and completion times.
INTEGRATED PRESSURE REDUCER
The pressure reducer is seamlessly integrated within the INX-1020A, eliminating the need for a separate pressure reducer on your cylinder. This setup minimizes the risk of damage to the pressure reducer in case of cylinder falls or impacts.
The machine continually monitors pressure and is has a constant pressure system that maintains the preset pressure within:
min: +/-1mmHg at 35mmHg
max: +/-10mmHg at 1500mmHg
ADMNINISTRATION KITS AND DISPOSABLES
ALTERNATE BETWEEN CO2 AND CONTRAST MEDIA
Our sterile and latex-free disposables are specially designed to alternate between injecting CO2 and iodinated contrast media.
A 2-way valve with two Luer lock connectors enables you to connect your iodinated contrast media injector at the same time as the INX-1000A and to switch at any time between the INX-1000A and a conventional contrast media injector.
Double filtration with two hydrophilic filters protects the patient and machine with the highest viral and bacterial standards.
- Double filtration
- Anti Return valve
- Included 50 ml single-use syringe
- 2 way valve
- Latex Free
AUTOMATIC AND REAL TIME CO2 PRESSURE ADJUSTMENT
NO NEED FOR PRE-PRESSURIZED CO2 TANKS OR BAG
With the INX-1000A, the pressure is automatically and instantaneously generated by a sophisticated electronic proportional valves system. You can change at any moment the pressure, even during the injection process, should you wish to repeat the injection with higher pressure.
Notably, there is no need for a pre-pressurized CO2 tank or bag.
Specific cart for the storage of the CO2 bottles and administration sets.
