VERNON HILLS, IL — The best of the globally tried, tested and trusted technology of Masterflex combined with the Swiss precision engineering of Ismatec offers pump operators a pumping experience with the new Masterflex® Ismatec® Reglo Digital Peristaltic Pump Series. Over 100 years of excellence have been drawn together, culminating in the first major design refresh for the Reglo Peristaltic Pumps. These devices truly deliver powerful performance with intuitive interfacing, making it easier than ever to achieve the results operators need.

In comparison to its predecessor, the new Reglo pumps have a wider overall flow range with the option of dosing between 0.00009- and 368-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 touchscreen interfacing that supports powerful programmable performance—all while taking up very little space (178 x 152 x 165; H x L x W, mm), allowing these pumps to be integrated into even the most space-limited areas.

The cartridge design synonymous with Ismatec Reglo 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 six, eight, and 12 rollers, allowing you 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 you 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” capacitive touchscreen display so it can be used with disposable gloves. The Android™ platform on which the interface is designed helps the menu structure feel instantly familiar to most users. In addition, these are the first highly accurate micro-flow (<100-mL/min) models to receive MasterflexLive™ capability and 21 CFR Part 11 and EU Annex 11 compliancy. This secure, cloud-based platform allows you to control and monitor your pump via a PC, tablet or smartphone (iOS™ and Android™). You can ensure that valuable sample loss is minimized, and your safety is optimized, due to the ability to control 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.
