The Disc Pump: An Evolution in Micropump Technology

The pump is at the heart of many medical and life science devices. In this Expert Insight, John Watson, Business Development Manager, Piezoelectric Disc Pumps at The Lee Company, discusses the company’s disc pump: an evolutionary step forward in micropump technology. John spoke with Medical Design Briefs about how the disc pump helps to solve many of the challenges associated with legacy designs (such as diaphragm, rotary vane, piston, peristaltic, and syringe pump technologies), and why it is vital to ensure that the selected pump technology ultimately aligns with the system’s technical and commercial goals.
