Bidirectional, small-volume diaphragm pumps (one per vessel) that drive flush, sample, and purge functions are accurate to within 0.25 milliliter (typically about 0.1 milliliter) of volume. Flush media recycling eliminates need for media replacement and simplifies dissolution calculations. Cross-contamination is commonly less than 1 percent, even at 2-minute sample intervals required for rapid-release formulations.
