Syringe Pumps for Microfluidic Applications
Chemyx syringe pumps are routinely used in microfluidic applications to precisely control interactions of liquids in tiny micrometer scale channels. In microfluidic devices, syringe pumps are used to control the flow of fluids through microchannels with high precision and accuracy. The pumps are particularly useful when dealing with low flow rates and small volumes of fluids, which is typical of microfluidic systems. Syringe pumps allow researchers to manipulate the flow of fluids in microfluidic channels to control the mixing of reagents, create gradients, and deliver precise doses of drugs or other fluids to cells or tissues in vitro. This laboratory technology has led to the creation of powerful tools for scientists to control fluid physics, cellular environment and advances in this technique are revolutionizing biology procedures for enzymatic analysis, DNA analysis, and proteomics. Additionally, syringe pumps can be integrated with other instruments such as microscopes, detectors, and sensors to create fully automated microfluidic flow control systems.
One of the main advantages of syringe pumps in microfluidics is their ability to deliver precise and accurate volumes of fluid over extended periods of time. This is critical for many microfluidic applications, including cell culture, drug delivery, and chemical synthesis. Furthermore, syringe pumps can be easily programmed to deliver complex flow profiles, which are often necessary for creating specific chemical or biological environments in microfluidic devices. Syringe pumps also offer high levels of reproducibility, which is important for scientific research where consistency and accuracy are essential. Overall, the use of syringe pumps in microfluidics has greatly advanced the field and has enabled researchers to perform a wide range of experiments that would not be possible with other fluidic handling techniques.
Chemyx syringe pump systems are used extensively in microfluidics and are cited in numerous publications. As the primary mircrofluidics pump, our microfluidic systems are renowned for high accuracy, precision, and reliability during processes critical for fluid delivery functions. Our microfluidic syringe pumps support microfluidic chips and custom fabricated PDMS devices for a diverse range of applications from studies of fundamental physics, single cell studies, lab-on-chip, micro-environmental/chemical environmental control and medical diagnostics.
2 independent channels act as 2 syringe pumps in one with the option of having both channels operate at different speeds. With the most precise and smallest step resolution on the market, this independent channel syringe pump is the best system on the market for microfluidic delivery.
