The new single-use Quattroflow® Microdosing QB2-SD Pump operates entirely differently from the legacy line of Quattroflow products. Using the principle of positive displacement with a rotary action, the lightweight QB2-SD gently transfers fixed cavities of liquid of 25 μl with a maximum flow rate of 2.7 L/hr around a rotor from inlet to outlet. This provides high levels of accuracy without the need for additional sensors that are typically combined with peristaltic pumps. The pumps also generate a high vacuum capability and handle high viscosities.
The system allows easy and rapid changeovers since the single-use pumps simply click in and out of a motor drive, which is especially convenient when wearing full PPE.
The QB2-SD Microdosing Pump can be gamma irradiated up to 50 kGy with USP <88> Class VI certified materials, making it an ideal solution for handling biologics, including cells, proteins, mAbs, etc.
