The syringe pump offers enormous advantages for microfluidic applications due to its volumetric delivery principle and minimized pulsation. However, it also has a major disadvantage compared to other pumps: the delivery naturally ends as soon as the syringe is empty. In this blog post, you can find out how syringe pumps can nevertheless be used for continuous dosing. Read on »

Mankind has reached a point where new active substances are urgently needed, as various bacterial strains have developed resistance to the known antibiotics and can no longer be used to combat them. The role microfluidics and the so-called compartmentalized flow can play in the search for new active substances is discussed in the current article of the #CETONIacademy. Read on »
