Syringe Pump Delivery System
Optimized to provide precise injections

The PHD ULTRA Syringe Pump drug and cell delivery system from Harvard Apparatus, Holliston, Mass, has been optimized to provide precise injections of low nanoliter to microliter volumes of cells and drugs that must be delivered to specific spatial locations. The PHD ULTRA Nanomite features foot-pedal activation for hands-free injections. The high-resolution LCD touch screen and icon interface allows users to create and run simple to complex methods without a PC. This enables new and existing operators to easily retrieve and run any pre-defined delivery method, greatly enhancing injection repeatability and reducing the likelihood of user error. Though designed for fast bolus infusions, the PHD ULTRA Nanomite can easily deliver from low-nanoliter up to tens of mL/min injections with unmatched performance, particularly when combined with Harvard Apparatus micro needles as small as 37 gauge. The PHD ULTRA has flow ramping capability for superior continuous volume injections into organs, muscle tissue, cells, and neurons with minimal physiological impact.

Dual-Channel Bipolar Temperature Controller
Automatic control of two Peltier devices

Warner Instruments, Hamden, Conn, a designer and manufacturer of biomedical devices for the electrophysiological, cellular, and neurological sciences, introduces its CL-200 Dual Channel Bipolar Temperature Controller for automatic control of two Peltier devices. Accurately maintaining temperatures between -6° and 65°C with a single control, this model features a feedback thermistor switch that allows the user to select which thermistor is used for feedback control. Built-in protection for Peltier devices prevents overheating or freezing, while a low-noise power source makes the CL-200 ideal for sensitive electrophysiology applications. The CL-200 supplies 75 watts of power to each channel and is designed to control any Warner Instruments Peltier-driven temperature control devices.
