Dominant Flex Suction Pump

The Dominant Flex is Medela's latest innovation in high-vacuum suction technology. One-touch adaptable flow rates allow for a wider variety of procedures to be carried out with just one pump. Designed for use in hospitals, clinics and medical practices, the Dominant Flex is the optimal medical suction pump for all suctioning needs. The Dominant Flex Pump can also be used to provide the vacuum required for use with cardiac tissue stabilizers used in off-pump coronary artery bypass and for use with epicardial ablation probes.

The first Medela suction pump with selectable flow rates

Medela’s Dominant Flex provides true flexibility for wherever adaptable flow rates are needed to allow for faster vacuum build-up or quieter operation.

The Dominant Flex Suction Pump can be used for surgical suction or as a backup to wall suction devices for various applications in hospitals, outpatient surgery centers, clinics and doctors’ practices: general surgery, liposuction, endoscopy and wound drainage.

One of the benefits of Dominant Flex is the immediate build-up of the vacuum at a flow rate of 60 l/min for increased performance and faster suctioning. For sensitive operations in which minimal distraction is essential, the noise level can be reduced simply by touching the 40 l/min button.


Benefits of Dominant Flex

The Dominant Flex offers three different flow rates in one device.

A smaller number of internal parts and enhanced accessibility reduce the time and effort needed for routine checks – all thanks to Medela’s clever engineering.

  • The Dominant Flex provides increased performance and faster suctioning by simply touching the 60 l/min flow change button, which activates the turbo mode for rapid vacuum build-up.
  • The noise level can also be reduced by touching the 40 l/min flow change button.
  • Swiss engineering and manufacturing processes make the Dominant Flex a reliable and long-lasting piece of technology.
  • The Dominant Flex has been thoroughly tested for compatibility with Medela fluid collection systems.
  • The on/off foot switch allows for hands-free operation.
  • 5-year warranty

Flow rates can be selected intuitively at the touch of a button. A simple touch delivers increased performance or reduces the noise level.

The CleanTouch technology of the on/off and flow change buttons reduces the risk of contamination.

The high-quality housing materials can withstand potent disinfection agents, and the smooth, single-piece hood facilitates cleaning.

The modern piston/cylinder drive unit (including heat-resistant, high-tech materials) provides long-lasting, dependable operation.

Patented technology and intelligent construction mean less maintenance is required.

The large vacuum gauge is easy to check at just a glance. The easy-to-turn membrane vacuum regulator helps to set vacuum levels precisely.

Versatility in all forms: the high-vacuum pump is available in rack, portable or mobile versions.

All versions can be equipped with either the Medela Reusable or Disposable Collection System.
