IDEX Health & Science launches new BioTight Fitting


Oak Harbor, Washington February 29, 2024–IDEX Health & Science has introduced BioTight™, a new simple press-fit ferrule fitting that is ideal for low-pressure fluidic applications.

Advancements in new compact fittings and connections are critical to addressing the challenges customers face when working in confined spaces—the need for reliable fittings that are reliable and compact enough to navigate incredibly tight spaces. For customers navigating the world of low-pressure applications, the struggle ends with BioTight from IDEX Health & Science. It has a low-profile design that allows it to navigate tight spaces that other fittings can’t reach.

“It’s exciting to see the introduction of our new BioTight fitting series,” said Scott Anderson, Business Line Leader for Connections products.  BioTight fittings are specifically designed for current and next-generation life science instrumentation flow paths. This new fitting technology will enable our customers to engineer new analytical instruments leading to new breakthroughs in life science applications.”

BioTight is ideal for bio markets including genomics, next-generation sequencing, spatial biology, IVD Bio, and Chromatography. BioTight is easy to use, compact, versatile, and metal-free. It’s made with all PEEK components to ensure chemical and biological compatibility. BioTight is rated up to 100 psi for 1/8” outer diameter tubing, and 200 psi for 1/16” outer diameter tubing.
