PMP ECMO Oxygenator by Eurosets s.r.l.

The Eurosets AMG is an oxygenator consisting of a Polymethylpentene (PMP) gas exchange module with an integreated stainless steel heat exchanger

The Path of Biocompatibility

The Eurosets AMG ECMO Oxygenator is coated with an advanced Phosphorylcholine coating.  Phosphorylcholine (PC) is a major lipid head group component found in the outer surface of biologic cell membranes, and it plays a major role in biocompatibility by preventing protein absorption and eliminating contact activation.  The PC coating binds water tightly, presenting only a water surface to the bloodstream.  The mechanism mimics a biomembrane, and because the PC coating is non-reactive, it is therefore not consumed like heparin.  This can reduce thrombin generation and decrease platelet consumpsion (1,2,3).  

As there is no heparin in the coating, it makes it quite a bit easier to take heparin out of the circuit needed.  

  • Low thrombogenic
  • Low inflammatory
  • Stable
  • Resistant to bacterial adhesion
  • Resistant to component activation
  • Biocompatible coating does not contain heparin
