Design Eliminates Tubing Snares and Provides Simple Tube Replacement
Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, Wednesday, April 28, 2010 — (Business Wire India) — 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 under its Bio-Chem Valve brand.

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.
The new design is constructed from chemically resistant materials to protect against corrosion caused by cleaning solutions, and easily meets Bio-Chem Fluidics’ 2 million cycle operating standard. Optional features, such as a tube sensor and manual override are available upon request.
