The Precision Fluidics Division of Parker Hannifin has announced the release of its newest Diaphragm Isolation Liquid Valve, the R6. This 6.4mm valve improves performance of clinical diagnostic and analytical chemistry systems that require precision fluid, plus it delivers liquid dispense performance in a very small package. It can be easily mounted over microplates, improving performance and saving space. When mounted on a manifold, the R6’s ultra-small footprint enables smaller and more efficient fluidic circuits by taking less space and shortening fluid channels. The new product provides solutions to today’s demanding analytical, clinical and agent detection applications.
"As we listened to the future requirements of life science OEMs, the need for simplified and compact instrument designs became clear,” said Don McNeil from Parker Hannifin. "Our new R6 valve enables OEMs to design fluid circuits that take less space and are more efficient.”
The R6 is ideal for applications such as in-vitro diagnostics, hematology, molecular diagnostics, flow cytometry, genomics, proteomics, liquid handling, sample preparation, chromatography and precision flow control.
