We Offer Clean and Simple Perfusion Solutions.
Modular Cooler Heater Products
When Perfusionists Speak, We Listen.
At CardioQuip, our technology has been born out of conversations with perfusionists. We know your time is limited and valuable--so why complicate things? From our user-friendly interface to our easy cleaning methods, we strive for performance, simplicity, and precision in everything we do.
The CardioQuip MCH Series
Accurate and Efficient Temperature Control in a Compact Footprint
The CardioQuip Modular Cooler-Heater MCH Series brings accurate and efficient temperature control to the operating room. The MCH series offers
- Open Water Path- design makes cleaning fast & easy.
- Patented Adaptive Temperature Control- heats better, uses less ice and requires less operator attention.
- Intuitive Multi-Language Touchscreen Interface lets you put the controls where you want them.
- Space-saving design- Smaller footprint fits into crowded ORs.
- Quiet Operation- Reduces background noise.
- Fully validated cleaning & disinfection protocols.
- Add-On modules- increase functionality as your budget allows.
Safety is foremost in the MCH Series design. Compliance to current standards, smart alarms, hardware and software temperature overlimit controls, and integrated system monitoring ensure patient safety and worry-free operation.
Open Vs. Closed Water paths
Open Water Path
Some of our competitors use a Closed Water Path design, with enclosed tanks that are difficult to inspect and clean. The internal air pockets in these systems give dangerous microbes a place to hide, away from disinfectants. The CardioQuip MCH employs an Open Water Path design.
The internal plumbing is completely filled with water, with no hidden air pockets to harbor microbes, and sections of clear tubing are strategically located to make it easy to check for biofilm. The main water tank is fully accessible for inspection and cleaning, and the straightforward MCH quarterly cleaning procedure takes less than 30 minutes.
Adaptive Temperature Control
CardioQuip's patented Adaptive Temperature Control monitors the set and actual water temperatures, evaluates the rate of temperature change, and applies only the amount of heating and cooling necessary to achieve the set temperature without overshoot. This reduces the overall energy consumption of the MCH, and makes the most efficient use of the available ice.
In testing*, the MCH-1000 used up to 25% less ice and required up to 70% less operator intervention than competing heater-coolers.
*Test data available by request from CardioQuip, LP
The MCH Series uses a bright TFT color LCD to provide up-to-the-second information and quick temperature response. Use the +/- buttons for 0.1°C adjustments.
Touch the setpoint, and a numeric keypad appears to allow quick adjustment—or use the custom presets to store common temperature settings for ultra-fast access. Use the included 15’ (5m) tether to put the touchscreen right where you want it.
The MCH Series was designed with the end-user in mind.
Optional modules increase MCH functionality. The Refrigeration Module adds ice making capability to the MCH-1000(i), and the Cardioplegia Shared Channel Module is a perfect complement to cardioplegia delivery systems like the Quest MPS™. Add a Thermo-Electric Cooling (TEC) Module to the MCH-1000(m), and it’s the only self-cooled compact cooler-heater on the market. The Dripless Anti-Microbial Hose Kit keeps Cooler Heater water away from OR environment, features dripless connectors at both ends, and uses Silver-impregnated antimicrobial PVC tubing to resist biofilm formation.
