Freedom to choose

Designed to streamline and simplify your aspiration procedure.
The AXS Universal Aspiration Set is the next-generation of vacuum technology advancing aspiration of thrombus in the neurovasculature.

Features and benefits

Image of Easy to use

Easy to use

Intuitive design that allows for single-user operation and optimizes staff efforts.

Image of More aspiration power

More aspiration power

Higher maximum vacuum than competitors to better hold on to clot. Advanced engineering also makes the pump whisper-quiet while providing more power!*

Image of On demand aspiration

On demand aspiration

Sterile field control with on-demand aspiration speeds up the procedure and eliminates the need for multiple operators.

Portable trolley with hands-free foot-switch

Simplifies transport and placement and allows a single operator to turn the pump on and off without breaking sterility.

Image of Find clot

Find clot

The ClotFinder™ specimen cup retains the clot for quick and easy identification of aspirated thrombus.

  • Maximum pressure based on bench testing. Please consult the instructions for use for maximum pressures for each device. N=1 for each unit. Testing was completed on the same day at approximately 458m above sea level. Data on file. Bench test results may not necessarily be indicative of clinical performance. Testing was completed by Medela on behalf of Stryker.
