As a mechanical engineer working on the hardware design of IVD platforms for ISO:13485 medical devices, it's essential to understand the different fluidic architectures and their pros and cons. Two popular methods for dispensing fluids accurately and consistently are air over liquid dispense system (aka, time pressure dosing system) and piston pumps.
Synthetic DNA, also known as gene synthesis, is an artificial process that involves the creation of DNA sequences through chemical synthesis. This technology has many potential applications in fields such as medicine, biotechnology, and genetic engineering. To create synthetic DNA, specialized instruments are required that use several types of fluids to create the desired sequences. One crucial component responsible for transporting fluids throughout the instrument is the pump. In this white paper, we will discuss the process of selecting a pump for an instrument used in the creation of synthetic DNA.
