Ivenix offers the most modern Infusion System built to make infusions safer, simpler and more cost effective. The large-volume pump has a best-in-class user experience and the infusion platform uses the most advanced software & interoperability framework.
Overview: Ivenix partnered with Saint-Gobain Life Sciences Medical Components to supply key components for the single-use portion of their large-volume infusion pump.
The Product: Ivenix developed an infusion system including a large-volume infusion pump, infusion management system and a portfolio of single-use administration sets aimed at reducing medication errors and related healthcare costs.
The Challenge: Saint-Gobain was tasked with manufacturing two small, technically difficult silicone parts, with the goal of providing low cost components at high volume.
The Solution: Saint-Gobain collaborated with Ivenix to determine their critical-to-performance specifications, including tight-tolerance dimensions and material selection. Saint-Gobain’s capability for fast and accurate prototyping allowed Ivenix to trial multiple materials and multiple design iterations until the design was selected that achieved the best combination of performance and manufacturability. Initially, other prototype houses and manufacturers recommended an extruded part for Ivenix which proved to be unsuccessful. Saint-Gobain’s engineering team advocated for an injection molded approach which was demonstrated by using rapid prototyping capabilities followed by a full production run, which yielded parts with the required durometer and surface texture. Finding a solution to provide intricate components at a competitive price helped Ivenix achieve the design intent and launch their product, bringing patient safety and cost effectiveness to the Infusion market.
