Use the table on the following page combined with our online calculator tool found here: http://saltwater-conversion.com/pages/nano-doser-calculator
WARNING: Before use, please read all operating instructions and our liability disclaimer on page 10
Enter the capacity (mL) and length (mm) for the syringe you have selected into the calculator. Please note this table applies only to the syringes included. Other brands may vary in length and should be measured.
Select the Syringe type with the minimum dose closest to the amount you plan to dose. For example, if your minimum dose is to be 0.1mL then you’ll need the 3mL Syringe as it is capable of dosing as low as 0.07mL. If your minimum dose requirements are a little higher, say anywhere from 0.13mL – 0.189mL then go up to the next size being the 5mL Syringe as that will be the dose range best matching

Start the pump running
1. Press and hold down the Boost button. The motor will turn and stop after 10 seconds. The alarm will sound.
2. Release the boost button to start the pump. The indicator lamp will begin to flash once ever 25 seconds to indicate the pump is now running.
To administer a small boost of the substance you are dosing the BOOST button can be pressed. The syringe plunger moves forwards with each beep. The calculator will tell you how much is dispensed per beep. http://saltwater-conversion.com/pages/nano-doser-calculator
Stopping the Syringe Driver when the syringe is empty
The pump will stop automatically and the alarm will sound for about 15 seconds. There is no OFF switch to stop the Syringe Driver before the syringe is empty. To stop it, move the rate switches to 00 - the indicator lamp will still flash, or alternatively just remove the battery from the pump.
