Colder Products Company announced the availability of genderless AseptiQuik S 1/8-inch and 1/4-inch small format connectors. AseptiQuik S provides quick sterile connections for small flow applications in an easy-to-use design with reliable performance, without the need for clamps, fixtures, or tube welders.
“It is exciting to offer the first genderless sterile connector that does not require any secondary equipment to secure the connector,” said Todd Andrews, business development engineering manager, bioprocessing markets for Colder. “This connector brings ease-of-use to a whole new level.”
The intuitive “FLIP-CLICK-PULL” design of AseptiQuik S enables users to quickly transfer valuable media easily with less risk of operator error. The connector includes integrated protective pull-tab covers, reducing part complexity and ensuring simultaneous removal of both membranes.
Applications for AseptiQuik S can include single-use bioreactors, cell banking, and a wide range of sampling applications. Offered in both gamma and high temperature versions, terminations available and ready-to-ship for immediate implementation include 1/8-inch hose barb, 1/4-inch hose barb, and 3/4-inch sanitary.
Colder’s bioprocessing connections are manufactured in an ISO Class 7-certified cleanroom and meet USP Class VI standards.
