Fluidic Component Capabilities: Custom Rotary Shear Valves

Jul 20, 2023 by IDEX Health & Science

Streamline Your Complex Reagent Flow Path

Streamline your complex reagent flow path with a custom rotary shear valve and integrated manifold assembly. Fully customizable rotor seals and stator materials provide the flexibility to design for cost and optimal performance. A high reagent port count offers significant cost and space savings compared to a bank of solenoid valves.

With over 45 years of experience in rotary shear valves, we work with you to create custom solutions for reagent selection.
