Take Control of Your Life Sciences Automation and Robotics Equipment

Take Control of Your Life Sciences Automation and Robotics Equipment

Hospital and research labs are demanding environments. Automated fluid delivery and liquid handling systems require very high levels of precision. Mission-critical equipment such as centrifuges, peristaltic pumps, and die injectors demand accurate velocity control, smooth and efficient motor control, and ultra-precise positioning.

Performance Motion Devices' line of motion control ICs, digital amplifiers, digital drives, and boards are the result of more than twenty years of motion control experience and know-how. They provide all the technical features you need for meeting your Life Science product performance objectives and delivering products on time.

PMD has vast experience with a wide array of life science applications including precision fluid pumping and handling, centrifuges, blood analyzers, medical sample delivery, drug infusion, stent control, and many other applications. Our technology is a core component of FDA-approved lab equipment manufactured by life sciences OEMs the world over.

Liquid Pumping

Improving Liquid Handling Pumping Through Optimized Feedback

Liquid pumping systems often use peristaltic pumps to deliver reagents and other fluids to test sites. This article demonstrates the statistical differences in delivered volume with and without an adaptive control system, and the resulting higher accuracy achieved.
