Solenoid operated valves suitable for medical and IVD applications
Boonton, NJ (July 16, 2010) – Bio-Chem Fluidics will feature its new line of Bio-Chem Valve™ redesigned pinch valves at the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) Clinical Laboratory Expo, booth 7731. The show takes place at the Anaheim Convention Center (Anaheim, CA), from July 27-29.
Bio-Chem Fluidics new line of pinch valves, featured at the AACC Show booth 7731.
Bio-Chem Fluidics’ new line of “next generation” solenoid operated pinch valves are redesigned for more effective operation. The molded body of each valve features smooth contours that guide tubing into the pinch points and eliminate snags and snares. The new pinch valve 075, 100 and 150 series are available in 2-way normally open, 2-way normally closed, 3-way and dual tube configurations.
Valves are capable of continuous operation, easily meeting Bio-Chem Fluidics’ 2 million cycle operating standard, and can remain in a fully charged state indefinitely without damage to the valve or tubing. The new design is constructed from chemically resistant materials to protect against corrosion caused by cleaning solutions. Optional features, such as a tube sensor and manual override, are available upon request.

Design eliminates tubing snares and provides simple tube replacement
Boonton, NJ (March 31, 2010) – Micro fluidic valve and pump specialist, Bio-Chem Fluidics, has introduced a newly redesigned line of solenoid operated pinch valves for medical and IVD applications. The line, which includes the 075 and 100 series, features a reengineered body with smooth contours that allow easier insertion and removal of tubing without snares.

Bio-Chem Fluidics’ pinch valves allow a large bore flow passage through a flexible tube, which is pinched off to produce a tight seal. Only the easily replaceable tubing comes into contact with the fluid, making the valves ideal for applications requiring frequent changes of the flow path. Pinch valves are available in both normally closed and normally open configurations.
