5-year warranty

Medela provides a 5-year warranty on the complete pump.

On/off Foot switch

Enables hands-free operation

Medela suction pumps can be used for various applications in hospitals, outpatient surgery centres, clinics and doctors’ practices such as general surgery, endoscopy, wound drainage, vacuum assisted delivery and any other application where a reliable and precise suction source is needed.

A strong alternative to wall vacuum.

The Dominant Flex and Basic pumps offer a strong alternative to wall vacuum, as the independent vacuum avoids overflow into wall systems and provides a smooth, consistent, and reliable vacuum level. The heavy-duty piston-cylinder system creates whisper-quiet and robust operation. The initial investment in this suction pump is easily recovered from the many years of reliant functioning with minimal maintenance requirements and long replacement cycles.

Dominant Flex gives you the freedom to choose the required flow

The Dominant Flex provides superfast ramp-up of the vacuum at a flow rate up to  60 l/min for increased performance and faster suctioning. For sensitive operations where less flow rate is required, the flow can be reduced to 50 l/min or 40 l/min by simply touching the button and thereby adjust the vacuum build-up time and sound level. 

Basic pump brings Swiss ingenuity and simplicity to surgical suction procedures with constant flow

With a constant high flow of 30 l/min, the Basic pump is the partner for reliable and simple suctioning.

Provide reliable and powerful suction while addressing hygienic concerns
With Dominant Flex and Basic pumps, the smooth, single-piece hood design facilitates cleaning, and the materials can withstand potent disinfection agents. The CleanTouch on/off button on the housing lets the person operating the pump switch it on and off with a simple touch: there are no gaps or grooves, which means there is less risk of contamination.

Rack or portable versions

Both Dominant Flex and Basic pumps are available either as rack or portable version (check for local availability).

The rack version is the classic version to be attached to a trolley for allowing mobility and handling, or for use in endoscopy towers.

As portable version, the pump can be conveniently placed at the patient's bedside and be easily moved from one place to another. Moreover the portable version can be equipped with Medela suction jars thanks to the handle.
