µDispense for analytical instrumentation

The micro-dispense module µDispense® is a compact system for process-safe liquid handling in analytical devices. It doses and meters liquids in the microliter and milliliter range very precisely. The size is based on the format of common syringe pumps.

The micro-dispense module is characterized by a modular design with optional actuator modules, such as switchable in- and outlet, various pump sizes, filters and flow sensors for volume flow control. The core component is a micro annular gear pump, which ensures precision, accuracy, low pulsation and high durability. It reduces maintenance expenses due to its long service life.

Due to the interface compatibility, existing syringe pumps can be replaced by µDispense. With the Cavro® script language protocol and an extended command set, µDispense behaves similar to a programmable syringe pump.

In addition to dispensing smallest volumes of liquid, the quiet and rotary operating micro pump enables continuous and reversible volume flow. The system is rinsed with high flow rates. Herewith, you will find the right dispensing pump for small dispensing volumes and microfluidic applications.
