Kemper Medical offers unbranded high pressure syringes for Nemoto injection systems. Nemoto Korindo is a Tokyo-based manufacturer and exporter of medical imaging equipment for CT and MRI, and recognized as a world leader in contrast injector technologies. Founded in 1939, the company has grown to be a leader in the field of medical injection systems. In 1972 it produced the first compression tank injector for cerebral blood vessels. At present, the company offers injectors for CT, MRI and angiography procedures that offer operators the capability of creating personalized protocols for patients in order to meet particular diagnostic goals. To ensure that their products can be safely integrated in MRI rooms, their injectors are made with non-ferrous materials.
The generic syringes sold by KMI are equivalent to their branded counterparts, but at substantially lower prices. They are of the same high quality as the originals to ensure that patient care is not compromised. Since the cost of the disposables is much less, the cost savings are also reflected in the lower costs of the procedures, which make them more accessible to a greater number of patients. Kemper Medical distributes products from 24 major medical device manufacturers and distributes its products all over the world.
The injection systems for which KMI offers OEM equivalent high pressure syringes include the Dual Shot CT injector, produced in collaboration with GE Healthcare, and the Nemoto Alpha series.
The Dual Shot uses plunger-style syringes that can be filled outside of the injector, making set up of the procedure more efficient. Further helping to improve the set-up of the procedure, the Dual Shot makes Quick Purge and Quick Fill features standard on the device.
The Alpha series includes the Dual Shot Alpha 7 and the Smart Shot. The Alpha 7 features the Power Head that makes loading syringes easier, using the one-touch adapter with the snap lock that locks the syringes into place with a “snap!” sound. It also features an assortment of pre-programmed protocols to simplify operation, including the proprietary body weight protocol. The Smart Shot is a single head injection system which offers an injection speed of up to 10ml/sec and is controlled using the seven-inch touchscreen. The device memory can store up to thirty results for easily retrieval later.
