Remote Operated MRI Compatible Syringe Pump meets the needs of the MRI environment.The MRI Syringe Pump from Harvard Apparatus combines a two syringe pumping mechanism, constructed of nonferromagnetic metal, with a 30 foot cable connected to the pump electronics control box. A Run/Stop switch on the remote actuator allows control of the pump when standing next to the MRI.

• Ideal for drug delivery and tracer studies, MRI imaging.

Full Description

These MRI Compatible Syringe Pumps have a non-ferromagnetic syringe pumping mechanism which holds two syringes, and should be positioned at least five feet from the core of the MRI. The syringe pumping mechanism has its own start and stop control, and is connected to the control box of our standard PHD 2000 Syringe Pump. Cable is 30 foot long.

  • ±0.5% precision
  • Programmable — advanced capabilities with programming from the keypad
  • Built to last — rugged construction for a lifetime of service
  • 2 year warranty
  • Highest Accuracy and Precision
  • Low Flow Rates

A bright, easy to read, two-line fluorescent display can be easily read from across the lab. A target volume key makes it easy to dispense a set volume. An ergonomic ‘Autolock’ release mechanism is easy for even small hands to operate and can never be left unlocked. The numerical keys utilize the familiar ‘telephone’ layout. High Pressure or Small Volumes This Syringe Pump delivers over 200 pounds of force against the syringe plungers. For applications with viscous fluids or requiring high pressure, this is the pump to handle the job.

The Programmable version of the MRI Compatible Syringe Pump provides advanced capabilities directly from the keypad. No external computer is required. The pump can store up to four programs of 10 sequences each. Programs are stored in non-volatile memory. No other pump can provide this level of control and flexibility with the accuracy of all of Harvard Apparatus’ PHD pumps. Built-to-Last This pump uses high quality, industrial grade components that will deliver years of smooth operation.

Two Models Model 70-2130 Infuse/Withdraw MRI Syringe Pump Model 70-2131 Programmable MRI Syringe Pump

Harvard Apparatus Programmable MRI pump has the most advanced programming functions and yet is very easy to use. The pump can store up to four programs of 10 sequences each. Programs are stored in non-volatile memory. No other pump can give you this level of control and flexibility.
