The Model KDS 310 Syringe Pump is suitable for pumping radioactive chemicals where a beta or gamma shield must be present because of its remote pumping unit and control box. The control box can be located up to six feet away, which permits it to be located behind a radioactive shield to protect the operator. Small size, remote control, and a rugged mounting arm make it suitable for use with micromanipulators, stereotaxic frames, and other clamping devices. When used on a stereotaxic frame, direct injection can be performed, reducing the volume of sample required. The microprocessor-based controller uses a bright display and membrane keypad with a simple menu-prompt system for easy setup. The pump features preset rate and volume control. The dispense volume is displayed continuously, and the pump shuts off automatically when the preset volume has been reached.
