How To Install NanoFil Syringe On The UMP3

How To Install NanoFil Syringe On The UMP3

NanoFil™ is a unique low volume syringe developed for improved microinjection in mice and other small animals. Using a UMP3 UltraMicroPump combined with the syringe allows you to make repeatable injections in the nanoliter range. Here we'll show you how to install a NanoFil Syringe on the UMP3 UltraMicroPump.



NanoFil syringes are 10 µL and 100 µL syringes which can be installed on a UMP3 UltraMicroPump to give you repeatable injections in the nanoliter range. We will use the collar of the NanoFil syringe and the plunger as the two points to anchor the syringe to the pump.
