It’s a Revolution, not an evolution. Masterflex® Ismatec® Reglo Peristaltic Pumps

Jan 24 2020 Read 601 Times

Cole-Parmer have just launched their new Reglo Peristaltic Pump series. These are the first highly accurate low-flow (<100-mL/min) models to receive MasterflexLive® capability and 21 CFR Part 11 and EU Annex 11 compliancy. Their combination of features provides users with a connected, intuitive, powerful, and secure fluid handling experience.

The creation of the Reglo sees the happy marriage of two brands, combining the best of the globally tried, tested and trusted technology of Masterflex® and the Swiss precision engineering of Ismatec®. Over 100 years of excellence has been drawn together, culminating in the first major design refresh Reglo Peristaltic Pumps have received in over 20 years. These devices truly deliver powerful performance with intuitive interfacing, making it easier than ever to achieve the results end users need.

These Reglo Peristaltic Pumps are ideal for the laboratory, with flow-driven technology that supports precision dispensing; functional versatility giving lab personnel freedom in their applications; and a space-saving compact footprint to conserve valuable benchtop space. In comparison to its predecessor, the new Reglo pumps have a wider overall flow range, offerng the option of dosing between 0.0001- and 365-mL/min. The models pack in advanced features designed to deliver fluids accurately, including anti-drip technology to help conserve valuable samples, speed ramping to better accommodate fluids with varying viscosities, and touch-screen interfacing that supports powerful programmable performance. Despite all of these features, the pumps take up very little room (229 x 147 x 157; H x L x W, mm), allowing them to be integrated into even the most space-limited areas.

The cartridge design synonymous with Ismatec pumps has been retained, with a choice of two or four channels, both of which fit three-stop tubing. The cartridge configurations offer a choice of 6, 8 and 12 rollers, allowing the user to choose the optimal balance of flow rate and pulsation. For the first time in the Reglo family of pumps, the popular Miniflex® pump heads have been integrated into the available options, giving  a choice of one- or two-channel configurations, both of which use continuous L/S® tubing. Furthermore, these new Reglo pumps feature a 50W BLDC motor instead of the 75W PMDC motor used in older models, allowing for powerful yet efficient performance. These small but mighty pumps continue the Ismatec legacy of being ideal for feed, transfer, perfusion, volume dispensing and time dispensing.

As hinted at above, these new Reglo pumps offer an easy-to-navigate and intuitive 5” touchscreen display. The Android™ platform on which the interface is designed helps the menu structure feel instantly familiar to most users. In addition, Cole Parmer’s secure, Cloud-based platform, MasterflexLive™ enables operators to  control and monitor thier pump via a PC, tablet or smartphone (iOS™ and Android™). End users can ensure that valuable sample loss is minimised and their safety is optimised, due to their ability to control of all pump parameters, including speed, flow rate, dispense volume, and more in real-time and remotely. Push notifications provide alerts for operating conditions and error messages. By subscribing to gain access to 21 CFR Part 11 and EU Annex 11 compliance operators will have the ability to robustly manage data, maintain digital records and control access to data.

On speaking with Cole Parmer’s Category Manager John Batts, he was enthused about this new addition to the fluid handling range, stating “For us the customer is key to our efforts, with the new Reglo being engineered in such a way that it combines all the good things that make Ismatec and Masterflex Peristaltic Pumps what they are. You can receive truly accurate dispensing of low volumes whilst being safe. The hands-free operation of these pumps allow you to remotely control the movement of as little as 0.00009-mL/min within cleanrooms, glove boxes or isolation chambers.”
