New smart syringe pump

27th May 2014

Parker has recently introduced a new smart syringe pump for assay applications. The product is targeted at OEMs working in the field of clinical diagnostics and analytical chemistry systems. The 30mm syringe pump offers excellent performance for systems that require ultra-precise fluid delivery. Optimised for long life the new pumps deliver a minimum of five million cycles, thus improving system reliability and reducing downtime. The system is ideal for applications such as in-vitro diagnostics, hematology, molecular diagnostics, flow cytometry, genomics, proteomics, liquid handling, sample preparation, chromatography and precision flow control.

Parker has listened to the future requirements of life science OEMs and the need for simplified and compact instrument designs has become clear. The new pump is one-third the size and weight of standard 30mm syringe pumps, which offers tremendous flexibility for instrument designers. Combined with excellent resolution and non-pulsatile flow rates down to 7.5 nano litres per second, the pump offers superior performance. It can easily replace current pumps, with the advantage of being directly mounted onto motion systems.

It is also worth noting that by directly mounting a pump onto a motion system, instrument manufacturers can simplify designs by completely removing transfer tubing between the pump and probe, thereby eliminating any loss in performance associated with long transfer lines.

Performance is a significant advantage with this pump. With its closed-loop servo motor featuring a 228,495 step resolution, instrument designers can achieve the precision needed with much smaller sample/reagent volumes and ultra-low flow rates to stand out from their competitors when it comes to accuracy and precision. By moving to smaller sample and reagent volumes OEMs can develop more efficient assays that improve speed and reduce cost. The smart syringe pump is CE compliant for emissions, immunity and safety.
