The greatest benefit of laboratory syringe pumps (also known as syringe drivers), is that they can be used in nearly every application that involves infusion of specific fluid amounts at a consistent rate. Particularly in the microscale and the nanoscale. These intricate devices are prominently utilized in many chemical and biomedical research areas.
Electrospinning and Electrospraying
Electrospinning and Electrospraying are examples where syringe pumps are used to infuse the chemical solution into a high voltage setup. These processes synthesize nanofibers and nanoparticles. In most electrospinning laboratory set-ups, the syringe pump is installed to feed the sample solution through an insulating tube. The polymer solution in the tube is extruded towards the collector as it exudes out of the orifice of a charged needle using a high voltage power supply (DC).
General Chemistry experiments require dispensing chemical solutions in strict amounts. Laboratories utilize efficient syringe pumps for various experiments. In standard experimental trials, a parameter like flow-rate bears importance. Which is why chemists use varying ranges of solution feeding rate.
Chromatography is a common laboratory practice for separating a mixture of liquids into individual components. Liquid chromatography (LC) requires a robust pump system for the infusion of solutions. The device can additionally play a key role in reducing errors in the areas of microanalysis and instrumental analytics. Prime examples would be mass spectrometry (MS), high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS).
Mass Spectrometry is used in analytical chemistry for determining the composition of an unknown sample. Materials of interest are ionized and broken down to fragments. These fragments represent elements that samples are comprised of. For such a complex technique, the amount of the samples needs precision and accuracy. Hence, laboratory syringe pumps are needed to carefully evaluate a liquid sample. Since pumps incorporate consistent and steady flow, they are key instruments for direct infusion mass spectrometry.
Syringe pumps that are well-suited for micro-fluidic applications, assisting research in areas like micro-environmental control. In addition to this, they facilitate accurate infusion in biomedical research, like feeding small animals or infusing small doses to specific locations. Furthermore, laboratory syringe pumps are useful for speeding up the research and reducing inaccuracies during fluid delivery in many advanced fields.
Micro-dialysis techniques use syringe pumps for a minute flow of solution to monitor concentrations of biochemical molecules. Usage is primarily found in pre-clinical animal cell analysis and environmental research for soil flux sampling. Similarly, pumps like these are a valid alternative in veterinary medicine, as they have proved to be helpful in facilitating research involving animal models. The laboratory syringe pump also facilitates the administration of fluids/blood products to very small animals as the traditional means can risk the overdose of fluids to smaller animals.
