Mechanism of action
The technology driving the infusion process is a patented “Rotary Finger” mechanism. A micro-motor inside the pump slowly revolves in a clockwise direction turning the cam with its four projections. In each quarter rotation, a single cam projection sequentially pushes up each of the seven finger pins. This continuous cycle compresses the liquid filled tube, creating a peristaltic-like movement of the fluid. As the solution moves through the tube, it is expelled from the pump reservoir into the test subject. The accuracy of the iPRECIO pump is +/- 5%. Each pump is calibrated at factory for maximum precision. A unique ID and Calibration Factor is shown in the program window during the programming phase.
