NanoFil Microliter Syringes for Accurate Microinjections
NanoFil™ is a unique low volume syringe developed for improved microinjection in mice and other small animals. It comes in both 10 and 100 microliter volumes and can be paired with a UMP3 UltraMicroPump for making accurate microliter injections. NanoFil stainless steel needles range in size from 33 to 36 gauge.
NanoFil™ is a unique low volume syringe developed for improved microinjection in mice and other small animals. It makes quantitative nanoliter injection much easier and more accurate than any other method.
NANOFIL is a 10microliter syringe, and NANOFIL-100 is a 100 µL syringe. The large volume of the syringe is useful for applications that require multiple injections. The speed of the flow at the needle of the NANOFIL-100 can be 10 times faster than the 10 µL NanoFil when used with UMP3 UltraMicroPump. The limitation of the 100 µL syringe is that the injection volume resolution is lower than that of the 10 µL syringe.
Reduced Needle Size and Dead Volume
The design reduces the needle size and dead volume of the system. The smallest metal needle offered for NanoFil is our 36-gauge stainless steel needle which is so small it can be inserted into the opening of a 33-gauge needle. Offered in both blunt and beveled styles, the needle causes less damage to the tissue than other micro syringes on the market.
Requires NO Oil Back Filling
In traditional nanoliter injection, the dead volume of the syringe and needle is backfilled with oil as a transfer medium. This makes the process messy and risks contamination of the injected sample. NanoFil’s low-volume tubing eliminates the need for oil. Injection is now simpler and less messy, and there is no possibility of oil contamination in critical applications such as ophthalmology research.
