Miniaturized micro patch pump

Powerful pump dwarf for disposable applications

The researchers at the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Microsystems and Solid State Technologies EMFT have beaten their own record; their latest MEMS micropump chip now measures mere 3.5 mm side length. 2015 the Fraunhofer EMFT presented a piezoelectric micro diaphragm pump measuring 5 x 5 x 0.7 on the Compamed – already at that time the smallest micropump in the world.

The miniaturization is not an end in itself; it brings about the big advantage of high-grade parallel MEMS production, leading to rapid decrease of manufacturing costs. This again paves the way for new cost-sensitive disposable applications like patch pumps or microfluidic lab-on-chip solutions.

Despite of its small size the new silicon pump chip is able to pump air with the performance of 400 µL/min. The small stroke volume of mere 20 nanoliters also enables precise dosing of liquids. The pump also boasts an extremely good backpressure ability of up to 30 kPa (225 mmHg), making it tolerant against bubbles.

These new MEMS components round off the micro dosing technology offering of the institution, which already comprises solutions for micro flow and dispensing control systems as well as pumps and valves.

Innovative implantable solutions with titanium micropumps

Fraunhofer EMFT presents new components in its portfolio on the Compamed

From patient-friendly cancer treatment to discrete yet efficient remedy for incontinence; miniaturized, bio-compatible micropumps offer great innovation potential for modern medical technology. The researchers at Fraunhofer Research Institution for Microsystems and Solid State Technologies EMFT in Munich have now expanded their technology portfolio of piezo electric driven micro diaphragm pumps and valves to include pumps made of biocompatible titanium, in addition to the materials silicon and stainless steel available so far.

The pumps and valves approximately the size of a coin (20 mm diameter) were developed especially for applications in the field of medical technology, in particular for implantable applications such as long-term drug delivery, or for hydraulic tasks like controlling an artificial sphincter. The pumps reach flow rates of max. 15 ml/min and pressures of max. 600 mmHg. The valves are available as an energy-efficient NC version (closed when de-energized) and as an NO version (open when de-energized). The wetted materials are solely grade 5 titanium and medical fluorelastomer (FKM).

These new titanium components round off the microdosing technology offering of the institution, which already comprises solutions for micro flow and dispensing control systems as well as pumps and valves.
