LAMBDA press release (12 June 2006): LAMBDA Laboratory Instruments introduces a new peristaltic pump, the MAXIFLOW. This pump extends the product range of the high quality LAMBDA peristaltic pumps PRECIFLOW, MULTIFLOW and HIFLOW, which have been specially developed for long term continuous processes like in fermentations and cell cultures.

LAMBDA Laboratory Instruments introduces a new peristaltic pump, the MAXIFLOW. This pump extends the product range of the high quality LAMBDA peristaltic pumps PRECIFLOW, MULTIFLOW and HIFLOW, which have been specially developed for long term continuous processes like in fermentations and cell cultures.
LAMBDA's unique tubing compressing mechanics reduces pulsation and is very gentle to the tubing. This leads to a long tubing life and the long term stability of flow rates even with low cost tubing. The tubing economy is such that the peristaltic pump is paid back after the use of only 80m of tubing. Thus, this is the only pump on the market which saves more money than it costs, says the company.
The MAXIFLOW peristaltic pump with its flow rate up to ten litres per hour is several times more compact than other similar pumps on the market. Despite of this high flow rate the LAMBDA pumps are so handy that they can be easily kept just in one hand and take only minimal space in any installation. LAMBDA peristaltic pumps are programmable with extensive remote control possibilities and an extremely broad digital flow rate setting in the range from 1 to 1000.
LAMBDA peristaltic pumps are used wherever a reliable, precise and long term stable operation is required - for example in continuous processes as is often the case in many biotechnology applications, fermentation, cell cultures, chromatography and the like. Therefore, they are also used together with the laboratory fermenter/bioreactor system LAMBDA MINIFOR.
A real breakthrough in the utilization of pumps is provided by the pump-flow integrator which can be further complemented by the PC control software PNet. This allows to use the pumps for new applications, where special expensive instruments had to be used before. It is possible to use the pumps to create gradients, to follow the kinetics of chemical or biological processes, measure growth rates and the extent of growth of cultures in biotechnology, etc. The LAMBDA pumps are very well suited also for chromatography e.g together with the polyvalent and easy-to-use Lambda OMNICOLL fraction collector.
The utilization of the new PNet software is not only limited to the peristaltic or syringe pumps LAMBDA VIT-FIT for liquids, but can also be used for the dosing of solid powdery substances with the LAMBDA DOSER, a unique pump for the precise dosing of solid and crystalline substances, or even for the measurement and control of the mass flow of gases with the LAMBDA Massflow controller. This is essential for automatic pH control during cell cultures with the Lambda laboratory fermentation and cell culture system Minifor or other existing fermentor systems.
