DOSE IT Laboratory Peristaltic Pump
Laboratory Peristaltic Pump
Looking for an easy-to-use peristaltic pump?
In today’s laboratories, peristaltic pumps are often first choice when liquids within the range of several milliliters to several liters have to be transferred. The main advantage of these pumps is that the liquid transferred remains enclosed inside the tubing. As a result, the risk of contaminating either the product or the pump itself is prevented. However, most laboratory peristaltic pumps are difficult to program, are oversized and bulky.
DOSE IT has been especially designed for laboratories looking for an easy-to-use, compact and portable peristaltic pump. With its light weight and compact design, DOSE IT fits everywhere in the lab and can be easily moved. The intuitive user interface with straightforward instructions makes it very easy to operate. DOSE IT is especially helpful for dispensing culture media, buffers or other solutions.
How it works
DOSE IT offers easy handling and straight-forward setting of parameters. It is lightweight, fits everywhere in the lab and can be moved easily. The large display and the intuitive user interface make it very easy to set the parameters and operate DOSE IT. Simply choose a dispensing protocol and press run.
1) Compact design - fits everywhere
2) Large display allows for intuitive programming and operation
3) Fliptop pumphead allows for an easy and quick tubing exchange
4) Different tubing sizes - compatible with tubing from 1-8 mm inner diameter
The intuitive user interface coupled with the large display makes it extremely simple to program and operate the DOSE IT. The setting of all functions and parameters is self-explanatory so that with minimal learning time everybody can start working immediately. The flip-top pumphead for easy tube loading further reduces the time for preparation and set up of the pump.
Compact and portable
With its very small footprint and light weight, DOSE IT fits everywhere in the lab and can be moved easily – no need to waste valuable bench space or to have a pump in every lab. The smooth and rounded surface makes it easy to clean. The position of the pumphead, display and keypad is optimal for ergonomic working.
DOSE IT provides all features necessary to support the individual needs in quality control. All process relevant information can be documented using a standard label printer (e.g. the EPSON TM-U220) or by directly transferring the information to a personal computer.
The DOSE IT pumphead accommodates different tubing sizes (1 to 8 mm) so that a wide range of volumes can be dispensed with speed and precision. The dispensed volume can range from hundred microlitres to several litres. The versatility of the DOSE IT reduces the need to have several single-purpose pumps in a lab.

Uses and Applications
- Media dispensing
Efficient dispensing of culture media, buffers and other solutions
The peristaltic pump DOSE IT is designed to make the dispensing of culture media, buffers and other solutions easy and efficient. The simple programming and straightforward operation of the DOSE IT is ideal for laboratories where several different dispensing protocols are frequently used.
- Coating or washing of Petri dishes
Coating or washing of Petri dishes
Coating Petri dishes using the DOSE IT CUSTOMIZE mode.
COATING PETRI DISHES is a common task in tissue culturing laboratories. Using the CUSTOMIZE mode allows defining an efficient protocol for coating or washing a defined number of Petri dishes. Coating/washing solution can be added and removed in series, making the application fast and reliable.
- Filling of density gradient tubes
Filling of density gradient tubes
Filling of density gradient tubes using the DOSE IT CUSTOMIZE mode.
Density gradient centrifugation is frequently used to separate different cell types or cell organelles, ribosomes or DNA from crude cellular extracts. The CUSTOMIZE mode permits gentle and fast building of density step gradients. To avoid stirring up the different layers, dispensing starts gently at a low flow rate and then ramps up to the target speed.
- Serial dilutions
Serial dilutions using the DOSE IT CUSTOMIZE mode.
Serial dilutions are extensively used in microbiological testing as part of the sample preparation for the total viable cell count in food. By programming an air gap before taking up the sample into the prefilled tubing system, the CUSTOMIZE mode allows you to efficiently carry out serial dilutions.
