Hello Mr. Farid.

I went to the National Thal. Conference in Lahore earlier this year where the person who manufactures the pumps locally was also present. Many people complained about the failure of the pumps. He then explained that the reason of him using the cheaper quality components were to make it affordable and he says that he replaces all the defective pumps that come to him free of cost. However, if you don't want to consistently send him back the pumps for repairs then he recommended to buy the expensive version of the pump which was about Rs. 11,000-12,000 (Could be more in the market).

So, you can go check in the market for the expensive version of the pump. I have forgot the name of the pumps but they were in the name of his daughter.

Hi,

I just checked the rates between CDN$ to RS and it is approx RS 57.20 to 1 CDN$. We paid CDN$3,000 for our pump two and a half years ago. This is really expensive as it translates to RS171,600 for a pump, we bought the pump in Canada but made in UK. I don't remember the brand name but will check and post later. This is a rip off. The pump is being used six nights a week for two and a half years as of todate and never had a single problem. Please update regarding the  performance of pumps available in Pakistan as I can use this info to help some other patients around here.

Thank you.

Hi Farid,

I have been using Graseby Medical's Model MS 16 A since 1989 (thankgod) without any problems. I got it from UK, cant remember how much it cost back then but i just googled it and found one available for 300 GBP (or around PKR 30,000). This model is pretty reliable as i've seen other patients in Pakistan using it for many years as well. The company that makes it (Smiths Medical) doesnt have it listed on it;s official site but you can see the set here

http://www.marcalmedical.com/product%20info%20ms16a.htm   

and here

http://www.gb-medical.co.uk/proddetail.php?prod=515-2123&PHPSESSID=f36e3d7431b20dfd84648b56a63ca1fd

or visit the company's website for newer models here: http://www.smiths-medical.com/catalog/syringe-pump/graseby-syringe-pumps/

I'm sure you can find these in Pak, I'll look around as well and if i see an authorized distributor i'll let you know or you can order directly from the net as well.

Hi,

The pump we are using is same as Graseby Model MS 16 A. I am surprised why we had to pay so much in CDN$. I could have flown to UK to get the pump and still save money.
