  • KOPF Needle and Pipette Puller – Model 730

    This equipment is used for fabrication of microneedles that can be integrated with various microfluidic devices for microinjection, microsurgery and microdroplet generation.

    Vacuum Pump – Agilent Technologies- IDP-3

    Agilent Technologies’ patented scroll pump technology line provides affordable, oil-free vacuum, can be easily integrated into existing systems, and is suitable for a broad range of both research and industrial applications. The pump creates a vacuum using a simple dual scroll mechanism—one nested scroll orbits around the other, creating moving zones of captured gas. Gas enters the scroll pump at the perimeter and is displaced and compressed toward the center hub, where it is exhausted creating low ultimate pressure at high speed. Our dry scroll pumps are ideal primary pumps for many demanding applications–delivering durability, reliability and easy maintenance. The IDP-3 operates at a pumping speed of 60 liters/min.
