Key Features

  • Computer-controlled pump operation
  • 8 separate flow cartridges
  • Standard flow rate is between 0.36 ml/min to 36 ml/min
  • Extra low flow option provides flow rate from 0.005 ml/min to 0.25 ml/min
  • For use with most multi-chamber, non-pulsatile BioDynamic test instruments

Overview

Gear_Pump

The TA Electroforce gear pump provides a steadier flow output compared to peristaltic pumps and can be used on most ElectroForce® BioDynamic® test instruments with off-axis pulsatile flow.

Key Features

  • Computer-controlled pump operation
  • The gear pump provides steady flow output
  • Pump flow rate ranges from 17 ml/min to 1760 ml/min
