  • World's smallest dead volume injection syringe
  • Use with WPI needles 33-36g
  • Fits UMP3 microinjection pump

Features

NanoFil is a specially designed syringe developed in response to customer requests for improved microinjection in mice and other small animals. It makes quantitative nanoliter injection much easier and more accurate than any other method currently in use.

No oil backfilling necessary

In traditional nanoliter injection, the dead volume of the syringe and needle is backfilled with oil as a displacement transfer. This makes the process messy and risks contamination of the injected sample. NanoFil's low volume, flexible tubing eliminates the need for oil. Injection is now simpler, and less messy, and there is no possibility of oil contamination in critical applications such as ophthalmology research (please see the Retinal Pigment Epithelial (RPE) and Intra Ocular (IO) injection kits.

How it works

When the inner diameter of the tip on a conventional syringe is reduced to less than 100 micron, it is very difficult to back fill the solution at a reasonable speed. NanoFil solves this problem by using a tip coupling mechanism that makes it possible to change the syringe tip during the experiment.

Tips

Specially designed tips as small as 36 gauge (110 micron OD) are offered in both blunt and beveled styles. Our studies have shown that these tips will cause less trauma to the tissue than any other form of micro syringe currently in use. NanoFil has a unique coupling mechanism that allows many different forms of small tubing and tips to be coupled with the syringe barrel.
