Cole-Parmer Launches Masterflex L/S Cytoflow Pump Head for Shear-Sensitive Pumping

publication date: Aug 31, 2017
author/source: Cole-Parmer

Masterflex L/S Cytoflow pump head

Not all peristaltic pumps are designed for handling shear-sensitive fluids and live cells.

The new Masterflex L/S Cytoflow pump head was developed specifically for pumping live cells and shear-sensitive fluids. The pump head is ideal for use in biopharma and microbiology applications and performance in live-cell applications has been verified by independent test data.

The Cytoflow pump head has a large-diameter rotor resulting in high flow rates at low motor speeds. The pump head is available in 2- and 3-roller configurations—two-roller heads offer higher flow rates, three-roller heads deliver less pulsation. The pump head is compatible with all Masterflex L/S drives that accept two or more pump heads.

In addition to the high flow rates at low motor speeds, the Cytoflowpump head has a convex roller design, furthering its cell viability advantages. This combination makes the Cytoflow pump head the best choice for pump operators looking to minimize the impact on live cells and to maintain the consistency of shear-sensitive fluids.
