The Quantum Pump from Watson Marlow Fluid Technology Group is a peristaltic pump with patented ReNu single-use (SU) cartridge technology.

The Quantum Pump from Watson Marlow Fluid Technology Group is a peristaltic pump with patented ReNu single-use (SU) cartridge technology. Quantum enables higher downstream process yields throughout the pressure range, delivering virtually pulse-free linear flow and low shear. Flow linearity is achieved across the 43.5 psi (3 bar) single-use processing pressure range up to 5.3 gallons per minute with trace pulsation of only ± 1.74 psi (±0.12 bar). An integrated 4000:1 speed control ratio allows users to sustain constant transmembrane pressure in micro and ultrafiltration. The user interface is located at the front of the pump, enabling visual confirmation of operating state and easy access to pump controls even when skid mounted.

The ReNu SU cartridge technology enables the pump’s aseptic fluid paths to be positioned accurately. The cartridge slides into position, allowing for a change of fluid path. Quantum’s ReNu SU cartridge offers validation and extractable data in line with BioPhorum Operations Group (BPOG), Bio-Process Systems Alliance, United States Pharmacopoeia, and International Organization for Standardization guidelines. Suitable for gamma irradiation up to 50 kilogray, ReNu SU is manufactured in an ISO Class 7 cleanroom, with all contact material tested for biocompatibility and BPOG-derived extractable studies.
