Paragon Oxygenators

The Paragon is the first range of oxygenators to be manufactured in the UK.

 

Its tailor made precision manufacturing process allows a greater degree of control over every aspect of its production, enabling quality and attention to detail achieved at all stages.



Highlights include:

 

  • Every unit is monitored through a series of quality control checks throughout the production process before being tested over and above normal clinical requirements. This is to ensure performance, reliability and integrity before it is made available for use. 

 

  • Every unit is coated as standard with our proprietary surface coating "Rheopak".

 

  • A unique and innovative product design allows end users to specify the orientation of each port to better fit their individual set up in theatre. This feature fits with Chalice's ethos of providing exactly what the customer wants. 

 

  • Each model can be easily built in to customised tubing sets, with user specified lines pre-connected for quicker/easier set up. Being built in the same facility as our bespoke tubing pack manufacture allows a seamless transition between two departments.

 

Each of the 6 Paragon Oxygenators are available in different models:  

Paragon

The standard Paragon Oxygenator has a Polypropylene Micro Porous Fibre Gas Exchanger and is available either as a separate stand-alone product, or as an integrated unit when used in conjunction with the Paragon venous & cardiotomy reservoir - making a complete and dependable system.  

MicroNet

 



The Paragon MicroNet is identical to the standard Paragon with the exception of a highly efficient filter membrane incorporated in to the Polypropylene gas exchanger. The MicroNet filter has a composition allowing a 40% open area, helping to maintain low blood side pressures as it filters out micro aggregate down to 40µ.

This popular model can contribute to reduced circuit priming volumes and costs as some end users choose to remove their traditional arterial filter and rely on the highly efficient internal filter of the oxygenator.  

PMP




The Paragon PMP is a stand-alone unit that is specifically designed for long-term applications such as ECMO/ECLS. Possessing all the benefits and features as the standard Paragon, but with the exception of a Polymethylpentene Plasma Tight Fibre Gas Exchanger, an essential requirement to allow extended use.

The Paragon PMP has an intended use of up to 15 days and has recently been revised to incorporate a vent at the summit of the gas exchanger to aid priming and gross air removal.
