Nordson Medical Introduces the RQC Series of Tubing Connectors, a New Alternative to Bioprocessing and Quick Connect Fittings

17 Sep 2013

Fort Collins, Colo. – Value Plastics, a premier OEM supplier of precision plastic components and a Nordson company, introduces RQC Series tubing applications to the biopharmaceutical market.

A more robust alternative for bioprocessing needs, the RQC Series offers a cost effective solution for flexible tubing connections in single use systems. The connector set features a more user friendly interface that includes a large button, an optional, integral and easy to use locking feature, as well as a single barb open flow design to provide security and mitigate flow path obstruction. The oer includes caps and plugs to support sterilization and shipment needs. Available in widely used polypropylene and polycarbonate materials, these connectors are compatible with industry standard quick connects to simplify qualification.*

These new applications are offered in two tubing sizes to fit 1/4” (6.4mm) and 3/8” (9.5mm) ID flexible tubing and feature platinum-cured, silicone o-rings. All materials satisfy USP Class VI and ISO 10993 criteria and are suitable for autoclave and EtO or gamma sterilization.

For ease of testing concepts, Value Plastics offers samples in all available configurations. For samples or to order RQC products, contact Value Plastics directly. RQC Series products are available from Value Plastics through its direct sales force, web site, major industry catalog sources and worldwide business partners.
