Original Press Release

NEW SMARTouch™

Press release date: April 12, 2017

World Precision Instruments (WPI) has announced the NEW SMARTouch™ controller for use with up to two independently controlled UltraMicroPumps (UMP3).

The new SMARTouch™ with UltraMicroPump 3 is the next generation of syringe pumps. It features Patent Pending technology which includes:

  • Total system calibration – Calibrate the syringe and the controller together as a system. This feature eliminates the variability of the syringes and delivers the calibrated volume.
  • Smart Smoothness – the controller can be set to automatically adjust microstepping according to the injection rate to deliver the smoothest flow.

User Defined travel limits – set the limits for a specific syringe in the software. This prevents the pump from over-driving the plunger into the syringe potentially causing syringe breakage.

In addition, the system features all the functionality of the previous Micro4 analog controller, plus:

  • All operations controlled through interactive touch screen.
  • Graphical indication of the flow and the volume in the syringe.
  • Automatic end stop detection dependent on volume.
  • Dual pump display – run two pumps independently from one controller
  • Automatic pump detection.
  • Pause / Resume feature allows dosing during infusion/withdrawal. Volume accumulated will be displayed.
  • Visually displays the % volume left in the syringe.
  • Fully compatible with all earlier versions of the UMP modules.
