Is your syringe pump the best labmate ?

Syringe pumps are among the most used systems to handle fluids in microfluidic devices and chambers.

However, do you really know the flow rate in your system ?

The flow rate in your device is regularly affected by a number of syringe pumps drawbacks as

  • Poor response time and residual flows due to deformable tubings
  • Limited perfusion time experiments and necessity for syringe replacement
  • Flow rate oscillations at low flow rate due to step by step pushing / refilling
  • Uncontrollable fluctuations due to micro-bubbles / frictions in the syringe pistons

For better performances, reproducible results and enhanced user experience choose the latest OB1 piezo-resistive technology !
