Download Microinjection Systems Brochure   Empowering Scientists with Reliable Instruments Serving scientists for over 50 years, WPI offers a variety of instruments for microinjection including pumps, pipetters, microscopes and more. One of our most popular pumps for microinjection is the PV850 Pneumatic PicoPump. The PV850, PV830, uPump and MICRO-ePUMP were designed to simplify intracellular injection. You get repeatable microinjection in volumes ranging from picoliters to nanoliters. The volume injected is controlled by the inside diameter of the glass tip, the pressure and the time. The PV850 offers eject and hold pressure. The hold pressure prevents backfilling of the pipette by capillary action, ensuring repeatable injections. In addition, the PV830 also has vacuum pressure which allows you to securely hold a cell with one pipette while you inject it with another.  The uPUMP and MICRO-ePUMP have a built in pressure source, eliminating the need for an external pressure supply. The MICRO-ePUMP with Integrated Cell Penetrator and Internal Pressure Source is perfect for intracellular injection. The Cell Penetrator delivers a highly localized voltage signal to a targeted injection site to facilitate penetration with minimal trauma. WPI h
  2. Instruments for Zebrafish Research - Oocytes, Embryos, Larvae and Adults
    January 28, 2021
    World Precision Instruments (WPI) offers a broad range of research instruments for zebrafish (Danio Rerio) research, from the time the genetics of the subject are modified through the point where the physiological effects of the change are monitored. Whether researchers are performing microinjection or making cardiovascular measurements, the WPI product line includes instruments for research on oocytes, embryos, larvae and adult zebrafish.

  3. Affordable New Injector: Configure the PV850 Software
    September 08, 2020
    [by Gabe Gonzalez] The PV850 Injector is designed to simplify intracellular injection and a variety of other microinjection tasks. The PV850 uses regulated air pressure for injecting cells with fluid. Injected volumes range from picoliters to nanoliters. The port supplies positive pressure for high-pressure ejection maximum of 8 7PSI. The PV850 Microinjector offers separate regulated compensation (back filling prevention) and ejection pressures with a precision timing circuit that switches from injection pressure to compensation pressure automatically. Timing, injection pressure and compensation pressure are adjusted independently using the intuitive touch-screen user interface. Time intervals can range from 2 seconds down to

  5. 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
  6. CardioPhys ECG is Perfect for Affordable Cardiotoxicity Testing in Small Animals
    May 18, 2020
    [by Mikaël Berrou] CardioPhys™ and Cardiotoxicity When a new drug is discovered with an effect against a pathology, a natural public demand would ask to administrate it immediately. Although the new drug may be beneficial in many aspects, that new molecule could potentially have side effects that need to be evaluated. The most important potential side effect is cardiotoxicity. What is Cardiotoxicity? Cardiotoxicity is the damage to the heart by harmful chemicals (www.nccn.org/patients/resources/life_with_cancer/managing_symptoms/cardiac_toxicity.aspx), and its evaluation ha
  7. Researcher Shares Video of MICRO-ePORE™ Assisted Cell Penetration
    August 02, 2019
    The new WPI MICRO-ePORE™ pinpoint cell penetrator is a simple and versatile system that can be used to facilitate microinjection of a diverse array of compounds and biomolecules into oocytes and pre-implantation stage mammalian embryos. Patent pending Flutter Electrode Technology assists in small, clean, precise membrane penetration without tearing or damaging the membrane. It results in substantially increased viability of embryos. In this quick video, Dr. Pelczar from the Center for Transgenic Models in Switzerland demonstrates the ease o

  10. Microinjection in Zebrafish Otocytes
    August 23, 2013
    Researchers at the University of Michigan are using WPI's PV820 for injecting a morpholino solution into the lumen of the otic vesicle of 1-day old zebrafish embryos.  Then, they use electroporation to introduce mif and mif-like morpholinos into the developing inner ear tissues.
