Syringe Pumps Application Selection Guide SYRINGE PUMPS Application Selection Guide 8 • • • W ith more than 60 years of experience in the development, manufacture, and support of the highest quality syringe pumps, and 100 years in fluidics, Harvard Apparatus has a wealth of experience to share in recommending the right solution for your application. Following is only a partial guide of some application suggestions. Contact our Technical Support group for their input or with questions for the best pump to meet your need. If you do not see what you feel is the best solution for your application, give us a call as we often develop or modify standard products for particular applications at little or no extra cost. Neuroscience Applications in this area include: microdialysis and site specific microinjection into various brain regions. For stereotaxically guided, single channel microinjection, see the Pump 11 Elite Nanomite on page 16, or the PHD ULTRA™ Nanomite on page 28. For single or dual probe microdialysis, see the Pump 11 Elite on page 11 or Pico Plus Elite on page 14. For applications using a liquid switch, or for running multiple experiments simultaneously, see the PHD ULTRA™ on page 19. Infusion and Drug Delivery Delivering accurate volumes and flows is critical to maintaining dosing regimens, interpretation of pharmacokinetics and other data. • • • For single or dual channel infusions, see the Pump 11 Elite on page 11, or PHD ULTRA™ on page 19. If MRI or MRI Compatible PET studies are being conducted, see the PHD 22/2000 on page 32. To run multiple studies from a single pump, see the PHD ULTRA™ on page 19.
