The IV ExprésTM
(Nov 30, 2000)
version of Debiotech’s " IV Exprés "
infusion pump is now a part of the equipment for use aboard the
International Space Station " Alpha ". The US
Space Shuttle " Endeavour " was launched on
november 30th 2000 and carried one of eight " IV
Exprés " pumps delivered to NASA.
The immediate interest of this kind of medical equipment is to provide
emergency care to the Space Station’s inhabitants in the case of
unforeseen injuries or disease.
The selection of " IV Exprés " for that particular purpose
is a significant acknowledgement of Debiotech’s efforts toward miniaturization
and reliability in its infusion pump technology, which will directly
benefit to every patient in the home care and hospital setting.
Every Debiotech employee takes pride in being part of this unique
