Technology so unique, Quest Medical was awarded eight U.S. patents for this perfusion system. At the heart of the MPS®2 system are Spline-Piston pumps coupled with state-of-the-art pressure sensors enabling unparalleled drug delivery accuracy. The MPS2 provides independent control of potassium and carioprotective drugs, providing the flexibility to deliver any cardioplegia protocol or strategy.
The Quest Myocardial Protection System, consisting of the MPS 2 Console and the MPS 2 Delivery Set used together, is intended for use by perfusionists and physicians to deliver whole blood (from any arterial source) and/or cardioplegia solutions to the heart during open heart surgery up to six hours.
Flexibility with Any Cardioplegia Protocol or Strategy
Deliver any cardioplegia strategy:
• Intermittent microplegia
• Ratio cardioplegia (4:1, 8:1, 1:4)
• Extended arrest protocols (single-dose strategy)
• Dual delivery lines provide superior control of potassium and cardioprotective drugs
• No need to stop and manage clamps or valves
• The Auto-Pressure feature regulates and maintains targeted delivery pressure

Quest Microplegia is confidence.
Quest Microplegia with the MPS 2 Myocardial Protection System is a cost-effective strategy utilizing undiluted blood with targeted amounts of cardio-protective additives, adjustable to meet the changing requirements of each patient. Adequacy of perfusion, early recovery of metabolism and function are best achieved with the MPS 2 system.

67% More Surface Area Means Cooler Temperatures Faster
The New MPS 16-Core Heat Exchanger Delivery Sets deliver cardioplegia at cooler temperatures more efficiently across all delivery flow rates and offer an additional access port to bolus or sample.
To retrofit an existing MPS 2 console for the new 16-core heat exchanger, please order an MPS 2 Locking Block Conversion Kit (Cat No. 5001032). It’s easy to install and will allow the MPS 2 Console to accept both the 10-Core and 16-Core Heat Exchanger.
