Bio-Chem Fluidics provides world class support to OEMs of instruments primarily for Clinical Diagnostics, Analytical Chemistry, and Water Quality. Global customers rely on Bio-Chem Fluidics to solve fluid control issues with renowned engineering prowess and industry leading fluidic components, featuring the Maestro Piston Pump family, Opus Rocker Valves, Electric Rotary Valves, Pinch Valves, Isolation Diaphragm Valves, Flow-Selection Valves, Micro-Pumps and Peristaltic Pumps.

  1. Bio-Chem Fluidics Pinch Valves allow 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 this style of valve ideal for applications requiring frequent changes of the flow path. Pinch Valves have zero dead volume and are highly tolerant of particulates in the fluid stream.
  2. Bio-Chem Fluidics Solenoid Operated Isolation Valves offer instrument designers a completely inert, non-metallic fluid path. The valves use a flexible diaphragm to isolate the solenoid actuation mechanism from the fluid path. Isolation Valves offer low internal volumes, precise flow control and excellent ease of installation making them particularly suitable for use in highly aggressive and / or high purity fluid applications such as analytical chemistry and clinical diagnostics. The highly inert fluid path is especially useful in liquid chromatography, genomics and protein synthesis applications. The high flow factor makes these valves well suited to environmental and water analysis applications.
  3. Bio-chem Fluidics Electric Rotary Valve (ERV) is a stepper motor driven fluid handling valve. It provides an inert flow path for aggressive fluids. The inert path is achieved by aligning holes in a PCTFE rotor with holes in the PTFE body. ERVs are typically used in one of two main applications; port selection applications where one stream is diverted to one of multiple paths, and loop injection applications where the valve can be used to load and inject fluids into a sample loop in two discrete steps.
  4. Bio-Chem Fluidics Solenoid Operated Micro-Pump is a device designed to provide a precise, repeatable and discrete dispensed volume of fluid. The pumps use a flexible diaphragm to isolate the solenoid actuation mechanism from the fluid path. Since all wetted components in the fluid path are made entirely from chemically-inert materials, these pumps are particularly suitable for use in highly aggressive and / or high purity fluid applications, such as in analytical chemistry and clinical diagnostics.
