Clinical application

Pentamix 3™ - At the touch of a button

Setting up and using the Pentamix™ 3 Mixing Unit

Figure 1

Figure 1:

  • The Pentamix™ 3 Automatic Mixing Unit operates at twice the extrusion speed compared to the Pentamix™ 2 Automatic Mixing Unit. This reduces the tray filling time by approximately half.
  • The Pentamix™ 3 mixing unit can be turned off with the main switch on the front.
  • Readiness is signalled by the solid green LED. The LED blinks when the device is doing a self-check after turning on and during operating conditions that do not allow safe clinical use.
Figure 2

Figure 2:

  • The Pentamix™ 3 mixing unit automatically detects when suitable Penta™ Foil Bags with Penta™ Authentication Label and metal-reinforced cartridges are inserted. The Pentamix™ 3 mixing unit then operates with optimal mixing parameters.
  • After releasing the start button, the Pentamix™ 3 mixing unit automatically releases the plungers, which can be recognized by the sound of the drive.
  • 5:1 systems without Penta™ Authentication Label and/or non-reinforced metal Penta™ cartridges cannot be dispensed safely with full extrusion speed. In this case, the Pentamix™ 3 mixing unit will extrude the materials with the speed of the Pentamix™ 2.
Figure 3

Figure 3:

  • The locking lever of the Penta™ cartridge for the Pentamix™ 3 can be opened without opening the cover of the mixing unit. The mixing tip can be changed more easily. (Fig. 2)
  • The lever of the Penta™ cartridge for Pentamix™ 3 snaps into place in the completely opened position to allow easy change of the mixing tip.
Figure 4

Figure 4:

  • Hand wheels as well as start buttons are located on both sides of the device for convenient operation by left- and right-handed people.
  • Insertion of the cartridges is simplified because the plungers snap into the uppermost position and the locking lever of the cartridge serves as a useful handle.
