The MPII Mini-Peristaltic Pump is a small, economical and convenient peristaltic pump ideal for applications requiring pump with a small footprint.

The MPII uses 1.6 mm ID x 3.2 mm OD (1/16 x 1/8) tubing and it can support one or or two tubes simultaneously. Two front panel controls provide flow rates from approximately 0.8 to 12.25 ml/min. The second control is a two position toggle switch marked x1, x2 which selects low or high flow rates.

The easy-loading four-roller pump head is on top of the stout metal box. The back of the pump head effortlessly rotates into an open position and either one or two tubes can be dropped into slots. The loaded roller section simply rotates back against spring loaded jaws and locks into place. The tubing is automatically in proper wiping contact with the pump head rollers. Each pump is provided with a 12.5 mm (0.5 in) rod clamp on the back so that multiple pumps can be mounted vertically onto a lattice rod.
