Watlow's New Syringe Heater Maximizes Patient Comfort and Reduces Risk

St. Louis - Watlow's new syringe heater offers a drug delivery solution designed to ensure precise liquid temperatures and reduce fluid viscosity - two features that maximize patient comfort and decrease risk. The new syringe heater offers superior operational life and its two available configurations provide flexibility and adaptability. It is customizable to most OEM requirements and features an optional, precise and repeatable temperature sensing controller.

"Our Syringe heaters are designed to warm and maintain fluids at or near body temperatures. We understand that injections made at these temperatures are more easily tolerated by patients," explains Royce Payton, Watlow product manager. "In particular, heating injections minimizes patient risk, especially for patients in frail or distressed conditions."

The syringe heater's silicone/wire configuration provides a flexible solution to customers with varying syringe sizes, while its polycarbonate/foil configuration option delivers functionality and a high tech look. The heater design features a clear polycarbonate laminate construction, which allows technicians to view fluid levels and monitor for air bubbles and its smooth outer surface and radius on all inside corners facilitates easy cleaning.

An over-mold on the syringe heater houses an electronic controller and/or temperature sensor for trouble-free servicing and extended heater life (compared to bimetal thermostats). The feature, which can be modified and color matched for a seamless and integrated appearance, also improves system reliability and reduces equipment down time.
