Product News: New Masterflix Ismatec Reglo Peristaltic Pumps from Cole-Parmer

The combination of features aims to provide a connected, intuitive, powerful, and secure fluid handling experience

15 Jan 2020


Cole-Parmer has announced the new Reglo Peristaltic Pump Series, which are designed to be highly accurate low-flow (<100-mL/min) models with MasterflexLive® capability and 21 CFR Part 11 and EU Annex 11 compliancy. 

The creation of the Reglo sees the happy marriage of two brands, combining the globally tried, tested and trusted technology of Masterflex® and the Swiss precision engineering of Ismatec®. Over 100 years of innovation has been drawn together, culminating in the first major design refresh the Reglo Peristaltic Pumps have received in over 20 years. These devices truly promise to deliver powerful performance with intuitive interfacing, making it easier than ever to achieve the results you need. 

These Reglo Peristaltic Pumps are ideal for the laboratory, with flow-driven technology that supports precision dispensing; functional versatility giving you freedom in your applications; and a space-saving compact footprint to conserve valuable benchtop space. In comparison to its predecessor, the new Reglo pumps have a wider overall flow range, giving you the option of dosing between 0.0001- and 365-mL/min. The models pack in advanced features designed to deliver fluids accurately, including anti-drip technology to help conserve valuable samples, speed ramping to better accommodate fluids with varying viscosities, and touch-screen interfacing that supports powerful programmable performance - all whilst taking up very little space (229 x 147 x 157; H x L x W, mm), allowing these pumps to be integrated into even the most space-limited areas. 

The cartridge design synonymous with Ismatec pumps has been retained, with a choice of two or four channels, both of which fit three-stop tubing. The cartridge configurations offer a choice of 6, 8 and 12 rollers, allowing you to choose the optimal balance of flow rate and pulsation. For the first time in the Reglo family of pumps, the popular Miniflex® pump heads have been integrated into the available options, giving you a choice of one- or two-channel configurations, both of which use continuous L/S® tubing. Furthermore, these new Reglo pumps feature a 50W BLDC motor instead of the 75W PMDC motor used in older models, allowing for powerful yet efficient performance. These small but mighty pumps continue the Ismatec legacy of being ideal for feed, transfer, perfusion, volume dispensing and time dispensing. 

As hinted at above, these new Reglo pumps offer an easy-to-navigate and intuitive 5” touchscreen display. The Android™ platform on which the interface is designed helps the menu structure feel instantly familiar to most users. In addition, the secure, Cloud-based platform, MasterflexLive™ allows you to control and monitor your pump via a PC, tablet or smartphone (iOS™ and Android™). You can ensure that valuable sample loss is minimised, and your safety is optimised, due to your ability to control of all pump parameters, including speed, flow rate, dispense volume, and more in real-time and remotely. Push notifications provide alerts for operating conditions and error messages. By subscribing to gain access to 21 CFR Part 11 and EU Annex 11 compliance you will have the ability to robustly manage data, maintain digital records and control access to data.

On speaking with Category Manager John Batts, he was enthused about this new addition to the Fluid Handling range, stating “For us the customer is key to our efforts, with the new Reglo being engineered in such a way that it combines all the good things that make Ismatec and Masterflex Peristaltic Pumps what they are. You can receive truly accurate dispensing of low volumes whilst being safe. The hands-free operation of these pumps allow you to remotely control the movement of as little as 0.00009-mL/min within cleanrooms, glove boxes or isolation chambers.”
