A new versatile computer-controlled gustometer has recently been described Andersen et al. The device was built to match the specific needs of scientists running behavioral, electrophysiologal, and hemodynamic investigations. The setup mainly consists of several low-pressure neMESYS syringe pumps for dosing of liquid taste solutions directly onto the participants’ tongues. Read on »

In a recent publication, Peschke et al. successfully realized microfluidic biocatalytic cascades in a compartmentalized microfluidic chip with excellent stereoselectivities. In the experimental set-up, different substrates and cofactors solutions were placed in neMESYS low pressure syringe pumps and perfused through a four-channel PMMA microchip, which is loaded with enzymes immobilized on magnetic beads at a very low flow rate of 1 µl/min.
