The Affinity CP centrifugal blood pump, part number AP40, is a low prime centrifugal pump with smooth cone and low-profile fins, that gently handles blood, resulting in low hemolysis. It is designed for use with Bio-Console™ pump speed controllers with a new, high efficiency remote drive, 560A, providing the durability you've come to expect from Medtronic.
Available with a choice of biocompatible surface options; Cortiva™ BioActive Surface with non-leaching End Point Attached Heparin or Balance™ Biosurface, a hydrophilic biosurface without heparin.
The Affinity CP centrifugal blood pump may be used with the Stöckert™ and Sorin™ centrifugal pump systems or the Sarns™ and Terumo™ centrifugal systems by attaching the Affinity CP adapter. The adapter may not be available in your country. For more information, contact your local sales representative.
