The 107 Microdialysis Pump is a portable battery-driven pump and very easy to use. The 106 pump syringe is filled with 2.5 mL of sterile perfusion fluid, connected to the microdialysis catheter and then placed in the pump. When the pump lid is closed, a 5-minute flush cycle begins and is followed by an automatic decrease to the pre-set operating rate.
The pump has a flexibie flow rate that enables the user to change the flow for different purposes: low flow rate for high recovery of low molecular weight substances in a tissue, or high flow rate for blood flow measurements and for more frequent sampling intervals.
The operating flow is adjustable to eight different settings: 0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 and 5.0 µL/min by adjusting the dial on the pump.
