MC6000 Syringe Pump - TriContinent

MC6000 Syringe Pump

The TriContinent MC6000 is a multi-channel syringe pump designed for multiple probe liquid handling applications. This pump introduces an industry exclusive feature of rotary shear valves for optimum liquid handling performance. Our long-life valves were specifically designed and manufactured by TriContinent for multi-channel syringe pump applications to completely eliminate inherent performance limitations (clogging, pumping and leaking) associated with solenoid valves.

Coupled with the ability to use long-life UHMWPE seals, the MC6000 Multi-channel Syringe Pump surpasses all other products of this type in performance, life, reliability and maintenance requirements.
