Scientifica’s PPS combines full computer control of ten pinch valves and a high-performance peristaltic pump, allowing the user to conduct fully automated and highly accurate perfusion. The PPS is contained within electrically isolated stainless steel housing with a magnetic base for simple and stable mounting.
If you are considering the PPS, you might consider the Slice Recording Chamber Kit or SliceMate temperature controlled tissue chamber.
Intuitive, convenient control
The PPS is operated using a module within Scientifica’s ‘LinLab’ software, which is supplied free of charge. LinLab enables remote operation of the perfusion directly alongside micromanipulators, XY stages, microscope Z axis movement and temperature control devices.
Set perfusion protocols
As an alternative to manually controlling the features of the PPS, custom protocols can be created, stored and recalled allowing the user to step away from any manual intervention of the PPS and return once the sequence has finished. This is invaluable when repeated tasks such as cleaning, priming or assay protocols are required, saving time and ensuring consistency. For added convenience, a data log is written for each experiment for evaluation and optimisation.
Fast manual operation
Using the graphical interface, the user can quickly and easily access the following functions:
- Activate and deactivate each of the inflow valves
- Divert the perfusion flow to the preparation chamber or waste, or recirculate the solution
- Commence and pause the pump
- Alter the pump speed, correlating to adjusted flow rates
