New Peristaltic Pump Delivers Unparalleled Flexibility in Fluid Transfer

Broad flow range and ergonomic, compact design easily integrates into space-constrained applications



Vernon Hills, Ill., September 9, 2014—A new peristaltic pump enables researchers working in bioprocessing environments to achieve the precision and reliability needed to improve their processes. The Masterflex® Miniflex® peristaltic pump delivers an expanded flow range of up to 370 mL per minute, allowing researchers to effectively dispense low- and high-volume fluids with repeatability and accuracy on a scale previously not offered by pumps of equivalent size.

Ideally suited for applications that require precision in liquid transfer, metering, sampling or filling at different flow rates, the Miniflex peristaltic pump features a space-saving footprint, versatile tubing options, and a newly designed ergonomic pump head.

“Peristaltic pumps play an important role in many applications within research and industrial settings. In bioprocessing environments, researchers are facing new requirements for speed, efficiency, and reliability in liquid transfer,” said Gregg Johnson, Senior Global Product Manager, Cole-Parmer.“The advancements of the new Miniflex address these laboratory challenges for a wide variety of fluid and media transfer needs.”

With both single- and dual-channel versions, a custom pump head and drive configuration can be developed for a specific application. The pump’s over-center cam design and automatic tubing retention system permit quick tubing changes without adjustment. The new Miniflex pump also offers:

• Small footprint, offering easy integration into small-space applications
• Continuous tubing, reducing risk of contamination and leakage • Leak detection and open head sensor options
• Custom color choices to match pump with instrument design
