Spin Coater Syringe Pump Bundle
Automate and control solution dispense and unlock advanced spin coating techniques
Spin coater and syringe pump, available at a discounted price with a FREE connector
The Ossila Spin Coater Syringe Pump Bundle includes both pieces of equipment, along with a FREE connection adapter, disposable syringes, PTFE tubing, and needles. The adapter enables you to easily combine the precision and automatic control of the Ossila Syringe Pump with the versatility of the Ossila Spin Coater.
Using the tubing provided, up to four different streams of solution can be dispensed. Standard manual dispensing can still be carried out unimpeded too, using the opening in the centre of the adapter. The Spin Coater and Syringe Pump are both covered by our FREE two year warranty, and are designed to be used in labs, with solvent-safe components throughout.
The bundle comes with a free spin coater chuck of your choosing (please see the specifications tab if you are unsure which to select) and is available with either the single or dual pump version of the Ossila Syringe Pump. For the dual syringe pump model, each can operate independently. For example, one syringe can be in infusion mode whilst the other is in withdraw mode, or one can be used while the other is not being used.
Why use a syringe pump to dispense solutions when spin coating
Spin coating is one of the most popular techniques for creating thin-films. The method is quick, accurate, and easy to control. A spin coater like the Ossila Spin Coater allows you to control the spin speed and save recipes with up to 50 steps, and therefore allows you to create films of various thicknesses. However, without a syringe pump, the solution must be manually dispensed (typically by using a pipette) and it is therefore difficult to control the rate, volume, and timing with which the solution is applied to the substrate. This makes it difficult to accurately reproduce a given experiment. In addition, a number of advanced spin coating techniques require set volumes of multiple different solutions to be added at controlled rates, at different times during the process.
The new adapter for the Ossila Spin Coater allows up to four separate streams of solution into the Spin Coater through the provided tubing, along with a hole for standard coating through the centre. By combining the Syringe Pump and Spin Coater, complex multi-step processes can be easily carried out with a high level of repeatability.
No external PC required, both the Syringe Pump and Spin Coater feature in-built software which allows multi-step programs (20 programs with a total of 99 steps on the syringe pump and 10 on each profile on the spin coater, with up to 50 steps each) to be created and saved with ease.
Take your spin coating to the next level. Together, the Spin Coater and Syringe Pump give you complete control over the spin speed and the solution dispense rate and volume, with a high degree of precision. Easily and accurately reproduce your experiments every time.
Spin coaters are widely used for quickly and easily creating thin films, but there are many applications that require more precise control over the deposition. For example, when anti-solvent quenching, it is important to allow a precise amount of time to pass after the initial solution before adding the solvent. Similarly, for synthesising multilayered structures, a dual pump syringe pump is invaluable.
Multiple Modes of Operation
The Spin Coater and Syringe Pump included in the bundle offer are the same as those offered as standalone products, meaning you can use them together with the supplied adapter, or as separate units for any experiment that only requires one or the other. In addition, each syringe pump on the dual pump model can be controlled completely independently of the other.
Large Range of Spin and Dispense Speeds
The spin speed on the Ossila Spin Coater can be set to anything from 120 rpm to 6000 rpm to cover everything from slow dry crystallisation to ultra-thin films. The Syringe Pump, meanwhile, is capable of speeds from 12 µm/s to 5 mm/s (resulting in flow rates from 0.1 nL/s to 4.17 mL/s depending on the size of the syringe used).
Compact and Lab-Proof
The compact design (the syringe pump measures just 330 x 140 x 260 mm and the spin coater measures 225 x 170 x 132 mm) and high quality, durable, and solvent-safe construction of the two units make them suitable for busy labs and glove boxes. Since the spin coater is not burdened by a vacuum pump, it is easy to move from place-to-place to make room when space is limited.
The Spin Coater Syringe Pump bundle offers unbeatable value. Available for less than the two units can be bought seperately, the package also includes the Spin Coater Adapter plus PTFE tubing, solvent-resistant syringes, blunt needles, and one free spin coater chuck. Order yours today.
Backed by the Ossila Guarantee
All our products are backed by the Ossila Guarantee, and our equipment comes with a free two-year warranty to protect against any unexpected issues. The Ossila Guarantee also includes fast and secure worldwide shipping, large order discounts, and expert support from our team of scientists and engineers.
The Spin Coater Syringe Pump bundle can be used for everything that Ossila Spin Coater and the Ossila Syringe Pump can be used for independently, but also brings new options for spin coating processes that use more than one solvent (we recommend that you choose the dual syringe pump model for the maximum amount of control in these cases) or require automated dispensing with precise timings, solvent volumes, or dispensing rate of flow.
Examples of spin coating processes which require automated dispensing include:
- Perovskite anti-solvent quenching by dispensing solvent a precise amount time after the initial solution
- Rapid multi-layer coating
- In-situ reactions of components during coating
- Pre-coating surfaces with a carrier solvent or monolayer to improve wetting

Ossila Processing Equipment for Precision Spin Coating
The Ossila Spin Coater
The Ossila Spin Coater, pre-loaded with on-board software, is a completely programmable spin coater. The vacuum-free design reduces substrate warping and results in a compact unit that can be easily be used within a glove box or in any busy lab. Supplied with your choice of cable, and covered by our free two-year warranty.
For more information, please see the Ossila Spin Coater product page.
Single or Dual Ossila Syringe Pump
Your choice of single or dual Ossila Syringe Pump. The dual model allows each syringe to operate completely independently, for maximum flexibility, while the single driver model provides a budget-friendly option for those who do not need the extra syringe. Both models are capable of both infusion or withdrawal. Supplied with your choice of cable, and covered by our free two-year warranty.
For more information, please see the Ossila Syringe Pump product page.
Adapter, Connectors, Chuck, and Accessories
Spin Coater Adapter
The Spin Coater adapter for Syringe Pumps, only available as part of this offer, makes it easy to use the Ossila Spin Coater with a syringe pump. The part fits into the dispensing hole in the spin coater lid and holds up to four 2.5 cm (1 inch) needles in position above the substrate.
The centre of the adapter features a small opening to allow for precise solution deposition for manual dispensing.
Ossila Spin Coater Chuck
The Ossila Spin Coater chuck holds the substrate in place during the spin coating process, without the need for a costly vacuum (which are a common source of substrate warping). Choose a chuck to match the size substrate you use, or contact us for a custom chuck. If you have access to a 3D printer, you can also print your own chucks using our freely available STL and SLDPRT designs.
For more information, please see the Spin Coater Chuck product page.
The Spin Coater Syringe Pump bundle comes with everything you need to get started, including fifteen 5 ml Norm-Ject Disposable Luer Lock Syringes. We recommend using these syringes as they have an all plastic solvent-resistant construction with a tight seal that does not use rubber.
See the disposable syringe product page for more information.
PTFE tubing and Blunt Needles
To connect everything together, the bundle includes five lengths of PTFE tubing with Luer Lock adapters on each end. These connect to the syringes on one end, and a needle on the other, which then goes into the Spin Coater adapter. Fifty blunt needles are included (20 Gauge, 1 inch Length) to get you started.
