Engineering and Design
How are you using it?
Nearly every discussion with the IDEX Health & Science Engineering team starts the same way:
“What is your flow rate?”
“What are your pressures?”
“What do you need to accomplish?”
As system designers demand ever-smaller fluidic footprints, the need for fluidic efficiency continually increases and significantly impacts the final success of an instrument. Yet what could possibly be so complicated about flowing Fluid X from Point A to Point B? Turns out, at today’s microflow rates, quite a lot.
With more than 100 mechanical, software, and electrical engineers, and scientists—yet with only a single point of contact—our engineering team is extremely successful in providing creative new solutions that solve our customers’ emergent problems and achieve the results they need.
Utilizing the industry-leading brands of IDEX Health & Science and select partner technologies, our team creates and optimizes custom fluidic assemblies to:
- Increase system reliability
- Reduce fluidic waste and variability
- Develop new ways of moving fluids within cost and time constraints
