As genomic applications become more advanced, engineers are being tasked with finding fluidic solutions that dispense microliter or nanoliter volumes of liquids accurately and consistently. In this blog, we will discuss genomics and guide you in selecting an OEM pump that can meet the stringent requirements of the application.
As a mechanical engineer working in the manufacturing industry, you may come across the term "monomer dispensing" while working on projects related to contact lens manufacturing. In this blog, we will discuss what monomer dispensing is and why it is important, as well as guide you in selecting a piston pump for designing a monomer dispensing system.
Flow cytometry, a powerful technique used in various scientific fields, relies heavily on precision and consistency for accurate results. As an engineer designing a flow cytometry system, selecting the right pump is a critical decision that can significantly impact the system's performance. This blog post aims to guide you through this process, discussing the importance of low pulsation in precision pumps, and the key qualities to look for in a pump for flow cytometry instruments.
In the dynamic world of electronics and instrumentation, selecting the right electrical interface is crucial for optimal performance. Additionally, when it comes to controlling stepper motors, a fundamental understanding of the requirements is essential. In this blog post, we will delve into the considerations for choosing the best electrical interface for your instrument and explore the necessities for effective stepper motor control.
In the world of industrial applications, handling corrosive chemicals is a common challenge that demands careful consideration and the right equipment. Whether you're in chemical manufacturing, wastewater treatment, or any other industry where corrosive substances are part of the daily routine, the choice of a pump is crucial. In this blog, we'll explore the reasons why you might need a pump that can handle corrosive chemicals and how to select the right one for your specific needs.
If you are trying to dispense tiny amounts of fluid (typically 10 microliters or less), accuracy is one of the most crucial elements you need in a fluidic system. If your pump is consistently imprecise, you will see dispense volumes widely scattered around your desired target.
As an engineer, having a way to dispense fluids through a non-contact tip in medical diagnostic and other devices could potentially be not only life changing, but life-saving. The current options for dispensing require contact- mostly consisting of a submerged tip or use of the touch off method. Neither of these options are desirable due to either cross contamination possibility, non-repeatability, or lack of accuracy. An ideal method to solve this issue would be a pump with non-contact dispensing capabilities.
