Lightweight miniature valve for automated liquid handling

January 10, 2003
Designers of analytical and medical instrumentation challenged by smaller sample sizes and the ongoing need for portable, compact automated liquid handling equipment can use the 3/8-inch-diameter, micro-miniature, inert solenoid-operated isolation valve. The new lightweight design reduces the footprint typically required by standard isolation valves. Up to four manifold mounted valves can fit in a 1-1/4-inch square space.
