Accessory kits are available for all ElectroForce BioDynamic test instruments.  The kits include consumable parts and other accessories commonly used for ongoing experiments.

Key Features

The kits for BioDynamic instruments include the following available fittings and testing accessories;

  • Bellofram seals for the chamber
  • Chamber and platen O-rings
  • Diaphragm seal for the bellows
  • Chamber and flow loop fittings
  • 0.2 µm pore size autoclavable PTFE filter for use with the chamber or the reservoir bottle tubing (25 mm inner diameter)
  • Reservoir bottle with a ported cap with three ports (flow inlet, outlet, and filter port for gas exchange purposes)
  • Other accessories are also available



A TA Electroforce peristaltic pump is available to generate steady flow through ElectroForceBioDynamic instruments and chambers.

Key Features

  • For single-chamber, non-pulsatile BioDynamic test system applications
  • Flow rate between 1 ml/min and 280 ml/min
  • Peristaltic pump specific tubing is included
  • Used on most BioDynamic 5110, 5210 test instruments, ElectroForce 3200 and TestBench BioDynamic chambers



For use with the TA ElectroForce multi-chamber BioDynamic test instruments, this pump provides up to 8 separate flow paths to allow for independent or combined flow loops.

Key Features

  • Computer-controlled pump operation
  • 8 separate flow cartridges
  • Standard flow rate is between 0.36 ml/min to 36 ml/min
  • Extra low flow option provides flow rate from 0.005 ml/min to 0.25 ml/min
  • For use with most multi-chamber, non-pulsatile BioDynamic test instruments



The TA Electroforce gear pump provides a steadier flow output compared to peristaltic pumps and can be used on most ElectroForce BioDynamic test instruments with off-axis pulsatile flow.

Key Features

  • Computer-controlled pump operation
  • The gear pump provides steady flow output
  • Pump flow rate ranges from 17 ml/min to 1760 ml/min
  • Gear pumps are suitable for use with TA Electroforce pulsatile motors to create superimposed pulsatile flow
  • Used on most pulsatile ElectroForce BioDynamic test instruments
