Lipid Rescue for LAST

We are working on updating our Lipid Rescue kits(used for local anesthetic toxicity) in the Pyxis machines. I am specifically looking for information on whether the use of the 1.2 micron filter tubing is necessary in this situation. Also, if the filter tubing even supports the high rates of infusion(question has been posed to the manufacturer, but no reply yet). Rates of infusion can be more than the Alaris pump max rates of 999ml/hr. Any info and/or suggestions is appreciated!
