Syringe Pump

Dodson P

The syringe drive was designed to be a low-cost device to repeatedly deliver small volumes (~10ul) or to slowly deliver larger volumes.

One example use of the pump is to provide liquid rewards in operant behavioural experiments.

Data set contents:

  • .stl files for 3D printing the main components
  • AutoCAD Fusion 360 file of the complete pump
  • stepper motor library for Arduino microcontroller
Assistance with this dataset

We welcome researchers wishing to reuse our data to contact the creators of datasets. If you are unfamiliar with analysing the type of data we are sharing, have questions about the acquisition methodology, need additional help understanding a file format, or are interested in collaborating with us, please get in touch via email. Our current members have email addresses on our main site. The corresponding author of an associated publication, or the first or last creator of the dataset are likely to be able to assist, but in case of uncertainty on who to contact, email Ben Micklem, Research Support Manager at the MRC BNDU.
