Inflation Devices

For nearly 30 years, Merit Medical has been a market leader in inflation device technology. By working closely with clinicians, we are able to create innovative devices to meet the need for faster inflation, greater capacity, accuracy, and reliability.

Our broad product portfolio offers a wide range of features and price options–analog and digital, low- and high-pressure capacity–for inflation, deflation, and measurement of pressures in a variety of balloons and stents.

basixALPHA™

Built for Better Inflation

The basixALPHA™ Inflation Device is an analog inflation syringe with a +30 ATM/BAR (zero to + 441 PSI) capability and 20 mL capacity, designed for use in a variety of interventional procedures. More than just an accessory, the basixALPHA has a number of product features which increase ease of use and solve common clinical challenges.

basixALPHA Inflation - Better Features for Better Inflation - Merit Medical

Unobstructed Visibility

A clear polycarbonate barrel allows for better visualization of bubbles in the device.

Fast Inflation Times, Minimal Effort

Coarse threads and a smaller diameter barrel enable quick inflation times. Rotational torque and number of revolutions to reach pressure have been minimized with the intent to reduce clinician hand fatigue.

Ergonomic Handle

Engineered to fit the natural curves and sizes of operators’ hands.

Simplified One-Handed Prep Touch

Depress the handle for one-handed prep, freeing the opposite hand.

Blue Diamond™

With a precise digital pressure gauge

and digital timer, you don’t need to wonder how long an inflation was or what pressure was obtained. The Blue Diamond™ digital inflation device offers an integrated digital gauge and timer with the ability to record and recall prior inflation information. Ideal for ensuring precise inflation pressure and for tracking procedure data.

The Blue Diamond Inflation Syringe is used to inflate and deflate balloon angioplasty catheters or other interventional devices and to measure the pressure and time of inflation within the balloon during the procedure. It is also used to dispense fluids into the body and monitor the pressure of that fluid.

basixTOUCH™

Fast and versatile – the basixTOUCH™

provides expanded capacity for inflation. With 35 ATM pressure capability and 30 mL syringe volume, the basixTOUCH is ideal for any interventional lab using high-pressure, large-volume balloons. With wider threads and quick-release handle, the basixTOUCH offers rapid inflation and deflation to busy labs that need top efficiency.

basixTOUCH40™

Higher performance when you need it most.

The average procedure may require multiple inflations, making the time required for inflation and deflation critical. The basixTOUCH40™ delivers the speed you need and the performance you demand to meet the requirements of your busy lab.

basixCOMPAK™

The gold standard inflation device for interventional balloon inflation

With over 10 million devices used worldwide, busy interventional labs can rely on the basixCOMPAK™ for their procedures. The basixCOMPAK offers 30 ATM pressure and 20 mL volume and can be packaged with a wide variety of angioplasty kits and procedure packs.

Hemostasis Valves

Patients and medical staff want to reduce blood loss as much as possible

In response, Merit Medical has developed a full line of hemostasis valves to minimize blood loss in interventional medicine, while also supporting a wide array of procedures and devices. Merit Medical has been a market leader in the design and manufacture of hemostasis valves and has manufactured over 10 million valves to support the diverse needs of our users.
