  1. Popular UMP3 Injector is Not Your Ordinary Syringe Pump
    July 13, 2020
    [by Alec Dickson] Easy to Configure Using the SmartTouch Interface The UMP3 UltraMicroPump is easy to configure using the SMARTouch interface. It is pre-programmed for popular microsyringes and allows for user-defined syringe parameters, too. This ensures nearly universal compatibility. You can control up to two pumps, either simultaneously or independently, and the optional foot switch means hands-free operation. You can instantly verify actual injection volume on the graphical display. You can even use the touch screen while wearing gloves. Ensure Reliable Injections of Small Volumes The extremely fine thread-pitch of the UMP3 drive shaft ensures reliable injections

    The UltraMicroPump3 is a versatile microinjection syringe pump designed to support the needs of a busy lab. The UMP3 Microinjector is suitable for delivery of media from nanoliters to milliliters. the UMP3 injecotor’s user interface and system design enables delivery of highly accurate and repeatable injections. The choice for thousands of scientists, it is widely cited in research papers.   Intuitive Touchscreen Display for Easy Setup The SMARTouch controller has an intuitive touch screen interface and an easy-to-use menu for quick configuration of the syringe size, volumes and f
  3. Genetic Transfer (viral or non-viral vector) Using Microprocessor-Controlled Injector
    March 02, 2020
    With the first approved human gene therapy trial in 19891 (Rosenberg, et.al.), gene therapy has come a long way in modern medicine and is making inroads in clinics and the market in general.2,3 2017 was an important year for gene therapy when Luxurna, the first human gene therapy drug for an inherited retinal dystrophy, was approved by Food and Drug Administration (USA).4 Now several drugs are undergoing clinical trials. With an estimated $11 billion (USD) market in the next 10 years, both clinical trials and the pharmaceutical industry are expected to benefit immensely from gene therapy.5 With improved use of viral vectors (Adeno-associated virus (AAV), adenovirus, lentivirus, retrovirus, HSV) or non-viral vectors, research and clinical trials on the development of therapeutic genes have witnessed great
  4. WPI's NanoFil: Injection of Sub-Microliter Volumes in Animal Research
    August 21, 2019
    Are you looking for a microliter or sub-microliter and high precision syringe that holds needles as small as 36 gauge (G), in addition to having the capability to connect to quartz tubing? WPI’s NanoFil is the answer. We offer NanoFil syringes with NanoFil needles or the option to connect the NanoFil syringe to quartz tubing to use in research studies, mainly involving sub-microliter volume injections into animal tissues. Why Select WPI’s NanoFil (Syringe and Needle) System? Low Dead Volume The dead volume of NanoFil's is minute or neglig
  5. Choosing a Pump for your Fluid Handling Application
    October 04, 2015
    The type of pump you choose for your fluid handling will largely depend on your laboratory application. In this article, we will compare the popular pump types. Peristaltic Pumps A Peristaltic Pump has a series of rollers that rotate around the edge of the pump head. A flexible tubing is threaded around the rollers and pressed up tight next to them, pinching the tubing where it contacts a roller. As the rollers rotate around the head, the fluid in the tubing moves from the input to the output. The rate of head rotation and the size of the tubing determine the volume of fluid that can
  6. Application Kits for Use with the NanoFil for Microinjection
    June 25, 2015
      Application kits are specially designed for eye research for injecting retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and for intraocular (IO) injections. In addition, these kits may be used for brain injection in mice. They need to be used with a NanoFil syringe and UMPIII to achieve accurate, repetitive and oil-free injection in the submicroliter range. Each kit includes two pieces of Silflex tubing (one for a spare), a holder assembly, spare gaskets, and an assortment of four tips - blunt for the RPE kit and beveled tips for the IO kit. Each kit comes with one each of 33, 34, 35 and 36 gauge tips so that first time users can find the best size for their application.The Silflex tubing is the most critical
  7. When a Bigger Bolus is Better
    June 12, 2015
    First, let's consider volumes. A milliliter (mL) is one thousandth the volume of a liter (L) or 10-3L A microliter (µL) is one thousandth the volume of a mL (10-6L) A nanoliter (nL) is one thousandth the volume of a µL (10-9L) A picoliter (pL) is one thousandth the volume of a nL (10-12L) This is graphically represented at the right. Notice that the mL is one trillion times larger than the picoliter. The table (right) shows that the side of a cube with a volume of 1mL is 1cm long. Likewise, the side of a cube with a volume of 1pL is 10µm long. Just for comparison, it shows that the diameter of a sphere with a volume of 1mL is 1.24cm, and the volume of a sphere with a volume of 1pL is 12.4µm. With these volume comparisons in
  8. Using WPI's PUL-1000 Micropipette Puller
    March 06, 2015
    World Precision Instruments' PUL-1000 is a microprocessor controlled, four-stage, horizontal puller for making glass micropipettes or microelectrodes used in intracellular recording, microperfusion and microinjection. It offers programmable sequences of up to four steps with complete control over the heating, force, movement and cooling time. This allows graduated cycles for a variety of applications. PUL-1000 can produce pipettes with tip diameters from less than 0.1µm to 10+ µm.
