Syringe pumps are widely used in many research applications especially in the applications that need precise control. Today most medical research utilizes syringes to control the fluid being pumped to the experiment objects. In most cases microscopic or nano-scopic motion control is required to acquire optimal results, such application includes purification of DNA/RNA from contaminants[1]. The high precision required to control the syringe pump makes it difficult to perform manually. This paper focuses on the design of an intelligent syringe pump motor control system to achieve reliable and precise control for biomedical experiments. This project improves medical research quality with the development of a high precision, digital controlled multi unit syringe pump. The “Smart” motor syringe pump will be capable of delivering fluids in constant flow rate in high precision. The feature includes a graphic user interface on the computer for system control. The system will have functions such as volumetric flow rate adjustment under medical research conditions.
