This year the company launched the tennessee, a new injector that is accumulator-free and ready for use as soon as needed. ‘tennessee is not only applicable for MRI but also for CT and includes a comfortable touch terminal,’ ulrich reports. ‘The injector avoids permanent, time-consuming charging and handling of heavy accumulators, therefore the daily routine is not interrupted. Due to a smooth workflow the injector is absolutely dependable for both patient and user.’
As in other ulrich injectors, the tennessee is based on a special roll pump system. Therefore, previous loading of syringes is not necessary, the firm explains. ‘Injection is directly made from media containers. Due to ulrich’s sensor technology for air detection and check valves in the patient hose of the two-part hose system, a safe examination is guaranteed. tennessee is flexible throughout, as well as comfortable and safe, and will ease up the daily workflow.’
