Portable Medical Suction

SAM e.p.s – Emergency Portable Suction

MGE’s are pleased to release the first pictures of our new portable suction unit. The unit will also be on show on our stand (Hall 16 / G20-8) for the duration of the Medica exhibition.

The New SAM e.p.s portable suction aspirator offers a new benchmark in battery operated suction equipment. These lightweight units are ideal for use by emergency services and incorporate many new innovative features to aid the user during operation.

The SAM e.p.s can be run directly from Mains power or from a 12v\24v power supply. It is also fitted with on-board power utilising the latest battery technologies and power management to ensure that you get maximum running times when the unit is under battery power. And with a state of the art internal charging circuit, recharging times are exceptionally quick restoring the unit to maximum charge in approximately 2 hours.

Maximum Performance
Utilising over 50 years of experience in pump technologies, the heart of the SAM e.p.s is our new specially designed portable vacuum pump combining high performance with low energy usage to give reliable service with fast vacuum build up and high flow rates. The pump itself requires minimum maintenance and is fully balanced to give smooth and quiet operation.

All components within the unit have been designed to keep the weight to a minimum to allow the unit to be easily carried to where it is needed. In addition, the unit’s centre of balance is such that when picked up by the soft grip handle, it sits comfortably in the hand without twisting.

Onboard Lighting
The SAM e.p.s controls and display panels are fully illuminated for easy visibility, however as an additional aid in low light situations, the unit is also fitted with a small but bright LED light capable of lighting the whole unit clearly should it be necessary (e.g. to help when changing filters or pipework, to check the liquid level in the collection vessel)

Extra Protection
Contamination and cross-infection control are vitally important areas especially in a unit that can be moved around locations both inside and outside and here the SAM e.p.s also excels.
As you would expect, the SAM e.p.s is fitted with overflow control and also hydrophobic anti bacterial filters as standard. In addition it is also coated in MGE’s new anti-bacterial coating, BioCloak®, giving an extra level of protection 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Rotating Bottle
Another new feature is the ability to rotate the collection vessel through 90 degrees using a robust ball joint system fitted on the bottle cradle. This not only allows for easy changing of bottles but also gives the facility for the SAM e.p.s to be laid flat in difficult uneven terrain making it less likely to fall over. And with its BioCloak® coating and IP34D compliant splashproof case, damp and dirty outdoor conditions are easily coped with.

Choice of Collection Containers
The SAM e.p.s is fitted with MGE’s SAM 1 autoclavable 1000cc collection bottle. However if required, the SAM e.p.s can also be fitted with a choice of popular disposable collection systems.
