If you like what you see, don't just copy our technology, join SENSORICA. It is in your best interest! Here's why



Description

Design and create a Piezo buzzer based fluid pump. 
This is a small volume pump able to push small precise quantities of fluid. Applications are in biology, chemistry, etc.
