Electronic Monitoring - ensuring accuracy

AcuShot™ needle-free injectors have onboard electronics which monitor key components and injection characteristics for each shot. If the data becomes inconsistent or an operating error is made, the injector will make an audible sound and will display the nature of the error on its LCD display. The AcuShot™ injector electronically monitors each injection, recording data from multiple points. 

On-board electronics assist the operator in many ways;

• simplify priming the injector
• accurate dosage selection and delivery
• records “shot” data for several thousand injection cycles
• simple transfer of data to a PC using a USB interface and basic software
• suggest power cylinder selection

If the injector is not operating properly, an audible beep will sound and a message will be displayed on the LCD screen, such as:

“Orifice plugged” - If the orifice is plugged
“ Dry Firing” - If the vaccine supply runs out
“ Charge Battery” - If the battery needs to be recharged
“ Check Cylinder” - If the recommended pressure is not reached

 

Superior Power Cylinder Technology - long lasting, consistent power

AcuShot™ needle-free injectors get their injection power from a proven, more consistent Power Cylinder technology. This Power Cylinder is compressed and locked into triggering position by our patented motorized mechanism. The motor is driven by the latest in Lithium Polymer rechargeable battery technology.

AcuShot’s patented design insures that even when the battery begins to lose it’s charge, injection quality is not affected at all. Successful injections are as easy as pulling the trigger.

AcuShot™ injectors are able to deliver over 500,000 injections before the Power Cylinder should be replaced. 

Similar to today’s cordless tools the battery is removable, rechargeable and installs in the unit. AcuShot
batteries will typically provide power for 1000 injections, before needing to be recharged.

 

AcuShot Power Curves

• Very sharp initial pressure

• Consistent power delivery during injection cycle

• Force generated as power cylinder is compressed

• Triggering or releasing the Power Cylinder applies full force to the injection piston immediately

• Power delivered when needed most, at the beginning of the injection cycle to pierce the skin
and muscle

 

CO2 power curves

• Gradual build-up of initial pressure

• Slow decay of power as CO2 needs to maintain pressure in piston chamber

• Pressure from CO2 container must travel through hoses and valves before it can pressurize piston chamber

• Mechanism must be 100% sealed to be efficient and affective

• Escaping gas can quickly freeze valves, fittings and skin
