Lead Fluid Peristaltic Pump, Together With The Chinese Antarctic Expedition Team, Helps With Marine Virus Research

  • by

The ocean accounts for approximately 71% of the Earth’s surface area and has a significant impact on the climate. Among them, marine viruses dominate the vast ocean with their astonishing diversity, and scientists estimate that the total weight of viruses in the ocean is equivalent to the weight of 75 million whales! Behind this huge quantity lies the important role of marine viruses in maintaining ecosystem balance and promoting carbon cycling.

The ecological function of marine viruses
Marine viruses further circulate by decomposing substances from dead organisms such as algae and fish, promoting the regeneration of microorganisms and algae, thereby maintaining the operation of the entire marine ecosystem. At the same time, through fixed decomposition metabolism in the ocean, carbon dioxide from the atmosphere is input into the ocean and deposited on the seabed, fixing over 3000 megatons of carbon annually. This has made significant contributions to mitigating the impacts of global warming and ocean acidification.

Lead Fluid peristaltic pump assists in the research of marine viruses in China
Recently, China’s 40th Antarctic Expedition team was carrying out scientific research on marine viruses in the Amundsen Sea aboard the “Xuelong 2” spacecraft. The scientific expedition team collected 150 liters of seawater through multiple sampling, followed by 10 hours of filtration and concentration. The samples were collected into a small tube of only 50 milliliters, and finally brought back to the domestic laboratory for subsequent marine virus research.

The Lead Fluid peristaltic pump has played an important role in marine virus research, especially in the filtration process of seawater samples. The Lead Fluid BT100S-1 peristaltic pump provides efficient and convenient technical support for scientific researchers with its stable and reliable liquid transmission, making sample processing more stable and rapid, and providing a reliable experimental foundation for marine virus research.

Application of Lead Fluid peristaltic pump in filtration system
Filtering is a method of separating solids and other substances from liquids (or gases) by using driving or other external forces to allow the liquid (or gas) in a suspension (or gas containing solid particles) to pass through a medium, trapping solid particles and other substances. In short, filtration is the process of purifying a fluid through a special device, which has various methods and a wide range of applications, including solid-liquid, solid-gas, large particles, small particles, etc. Common filtration methods include atmospheric filtration, vacuum filtration, and thermal filtration.

The Lead Fluid peristaltic pump, with its good continuity, high stability, and excellent product quality, has become the optimal choice for liquid transmission in the laboratory sample pre-treatment stage filtration system. By providing continuous and stable liquid and positive pressure, it accurately controls the liquid volume and speed.
