Parenteral Nutrition is the method of administering nutrients to patients who are unable to take food by mouth. DC Allen were asked to work with Baxter Healthcare to provide electronic and software design for a new generation of Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) compounders.

The new design used advanced software that recognises patient profiles and assists with the complex calculations enabling therapy to be tailored more accurately to an individual.

Working with the Illinois-based client from concept to pre-production, DC Allen provided the circuit design and PCB layouts, as well as signal processing and self-diagnostic software. This, combined with the client's own design for state-of-the-art compounding equipment for macro and micro nutrients, resulted in a highly accurate and reliable device.
