Fluid & Cell Transfer Pump

The i-FILL® pump has demonstrated comparable impact on cell viability to the best-in-class pumps for this application. Even after extended recirculation times, the impact on cells was minimal and comparable to specially designed peristaltic pumps for live cell transfer.

Intellitech collaborated with University of South Florida to Perform a Comparison study of Different Pump Technologies' Impact on Cell Viability. The i-FILL Pump Compared Head-to-Head Against a Leading Peristaltic Pump

The study examined the application of i-FILL Micro pumps for transporting live cells. The team conducted viability experiments with sample volume suspensions of NIH-3t3 fibroblast cells and examined their cell integrity via live-cell imaging. An approximate cell density of 3.57 x 105 cells/ml and a flow rate of 1.9 L/min was used at sampling times (circulation) of 5, 20, and 60 minutes.

The results proved the i-FILL is a viable alternative to peristaltic pumps for live cell transport.  Fill out the form below to receive a copy of the report’s Executive Summary.

The i-FILL pump has been trusted as a precision dispensing pump in drug product, media and diagnostic reagent filling applications for more than 20 years.  It is now proven to be a highly capable, low-shear, live-cell transfer pump for critical applications where peristaltic pumps fall short. Precise control of dispensed volume, flow rate, acceleration and deceleration with this hybrid diaphragm/positive displacement pump provides unmatched accuracy and repeatability on dispensed volume, flow rate and fluid flow characteristics. Materials in the single-use fluid path have been qualified for cell suspensions and drug product applications.

An easy-to-use touch screen interface allows the ability to save recipes for product transfer with varying flow rates.

Both the i-FILL Micro and the i-FILL are highly configurable for flow rates from 2ml/min to 1L/min.
