Is an integrated manifold right for your application?


Take a look at our interactive 3D model of an integrated manifold.   This model features: 

  • Reduced internal volumes (reduced use of reagents)
  • Reduced foot-print (with smaller flow paths)
  • Reduced potential leak points (all in one design)

As you interact with this 3D model, you can see the small fluid paths, the integrated valves, and the integrated PCB. 

Integrated manifolds provide compact, drop-in solutions for your Life Science instruments. 

All of this with reduced lead-time.  Contact us for fast custom integrations that work for your specific application.

Life Science Fluidic Systems Designed for Manufacturing and Assembly

  • Experience - From medical gas mixing manifolds to flow cytometry flow cells, we have developed OEM fluidic systems for engineers and scientists on time, within budget, and to the required specifications for over 30 years.
  • Vertically Integrated - We leverage our 22 global production facilities to ensure quality parts, efficient communication, and seamless integration of components into a unique, robust fluidic system. This also allows us to easily scale from low minimum order quantities to high volume production.
  • VAVE - We take a holistic approach to value analysis and value engineering of fluidic systems. We take the time to understand key system requirements enabling us to assess materials, components, and fabrication processes to determine where to increase value and reduce cost to deliver high performance systems that meet or exceed customer expectations.
  • Quality - Our LEAN and ISO9001:2015 facilities manufacture fluidic systems for long-lasting performance and serviceability. We bring every project through a comprehensive process to ensure the final product meets your most demanding specifications through DFMEA, APQP process, first articles, and full production. We handle the most stringent manufacturing requirements leveraging our Class 10000 clean rooms, oxygen cleaning techniques, and our ability to meet and exceed a variety of regulatory compliance standards.
  • Flexibility - We understand specifications can change over time, so we have the flexibility to modify project scope and technical requirements to meet the ever changing needs of your product launch.

Manifold subassemblies for life science and medical devices provide:

  • Smaller instrument footprint - Microfluidic subassemblies enable engineers to design shorter flow paths for lower reagent consumption and overall smaller equipment size by increasing component density. In addition, the resulting smaller footprint gives instrument builders greater overall design flexibility.
  • Ease of assembly & integration - A fluid control system can comprise several dozen valves, sensors, and other components. Each of these has to be mounted and connected. In contrast, a manifold subassembly with components already mounted, is ready to be plugged into a machine with just a few connections. This significantly reduces assembly time and labor costs while also reducing the possibility of connection errors.
  • Reliability - Manifold subassemblies limit the number of leak points by eliminating tubing and fittings within a system. This leads to a more robust system design and better instrument performance. Manifold subassemblies also allow for easier maintenance enabling responsive field support and lower instrument downtime.
  • Materials flexibility - Manifold bodies can be fabricated out of a wide variety of materials such as PEEK, Ultem, and PTFE to ensure chemical resistance, other plastics for lightweight design, laminated acrylics and glass components for optical clarity, and rugged metals where needed across an array of life science and medical device applications.
