Change batches faster and reduce leaks

with injection-molded flow paths

 

Pre-assembled chromatography flow paths integrate advanced fluid management technologies, including injection molding, over-molded connections, pump heads, tubing, filters and sensors in a strong, nearly leak-free, closed and single-use device. Designed for simplicity, flow paths install in less than 30 minutes and increase process efficiency.

Components

  1. Inlet ports
  2. Pump head
  3. Over-molded connection
  4. Filter-based air trap
  5. Column ports
  6. In-line sensors
  7. Outlet ports

Reduce hold up volume with synergistic valve 

and flow path technology

Valve Block Components

  1. Pneumatic actuators
  2. Manifold closure points
  3. Overmolded joints with sterile connectors
  4. Molded single-use flow path

Innovative valve blocks direct fluids through uniform ID, crevice-free flow paths, achieving extremely low turbulence. Multiple T injection-molded silicone inserts, combined with over-molded connections, minimize footprint and enable optimum closure point placement, significantly reducing dead leg.

Traditional hose-barbed manifold

  • Multiple ID variations promote turbulence
  • Hose-barb connections foster leaks
  • Large dead legs increase hold-up volume, turbulent flow
  • Manifold batch-to-batch dimensional differrences create process variations

Artesyn® molded manifold

  • Uniform, crevice free ID minimizes turbulence
  • Over-molded connections reduce leaks
  • Minimal dead leg improves drainability and reduces hold-up volume
  • injection-molded flow paths enable batch-to-batch dimensional and process consistency
