Paper: Electrospinning PCL Scaffolds Manufacture for Three-Dimensional Breast Cancer Cell Culture

I am always excited to see a mention of SyringePumpPro! This time I confess I might be a little more excited because it's the first scientific paper mention of SyringePumpPro and Spraybase equipment.  SyringePumpPro has had an association with Spraybase for  a few years now, and it's been wonderful working with the team. I am not going to pretend that I know what Electrospinning PCL Scaffolds Manufacture for Three-Dimensional Breast Cancer Cell Culture is about - it's completely out of my area of expertise - I don't know anything about cells except that I own a lot of them and [...]

New Website Launched

Today is a very special day - I have launched the new SyringePumpPro website. The new site is a complete tech upgrade from the old Joomla site which has run reliably for years. Thanks Glady's I need to thanks Glady's for her help - she has chased my mad ideas and produced an attractive and functional site whilst I have tried to present her with the content. Old Accounts I haven't migrated the Joomla accounts mostly because I wanted to loose the thousands of user registrations from folks trying to hack the old site - which they never managed by [...]

Benzene Formation In Electronic Cigarettes

Found a new paper today - caught my eye because I have several customers who are electronic cigarette (“e-cigarettes”) manufacturers. Syringe pumps are an ideal way for manufacturers to fill the vaping cigarette devices. They will create multi-pump programmes and and then use the SyringePumpPro multi-pump recipie method of loading their pumps with the correct programs for each of their cigarette formulas. This way they know that they are reliably dispensing the components of their vaporizing liquids. This makes it easier for non-technical pump operators to dispense the correct ratios of ingredients. This is important as some components of the [...]

Automated Perifusion System

Congratulations and a shout to Prof Savas Kaya et al on the release of their new paper: An Automated Perifusion System for Modifying Cell Culture Conditions over Time In their work they used two syringe infusion pumps to deliver complex patterns of media/nutrients over time to cell cultures. The automated syringe pump perifusion system (New Era Pump Systems, Inc., Farmingdale, NY, Model NO. NE-500) is a timed system that pumps solutions out in exact amounts in a perfectly timed manner that corresponds to a code created by the computer program SyringePumpProV1 (SyringePumpPro, Gawler, South Australia, Version [...]

DIY Syringe Pump – Outrageous Claims

I fully support the clever people making open source syringe pumps. But I don't support some of their outrageous claims. Worse still nobody ever seems to challenge them. None of this page is intended to be an attack on any person or project - but some of these claims - WOW! If you wish to take issue with what I have written here please contact me - for a friendly discussion. The world needs cheap pumps to help where there isn't the funding to support the purchase of commercially available pumps. I do have a used pumps page - where [...]

What challenges will you face - making your own pump. Here are the some of the major skill sets you will need to build a DIY pump. 3d printing - setup, stl files, printing, diagnosing printing faults - warped prints, light weight prints, cleaning up the printed part to acheive parts fit. CAD skills -you might not have to make changes to the chosen pumps cad files - perhaps you can source the identical components the designer(s) used, but you will need to be able to examine the CAD files to help with assembly. Mechanical Assembly - working with just [...]
