Manifold Subassemblies

Manifold Subassemblies

We design and manufacture OEM fluidic systems for life science and medical instruments. We provide turnkey solutions by integrating our wide array of gas and fluid handling components into compact, fully integrated and tested subassemblies for analytical, diagnostic, biotechnology, and medical device manufacturers.


Manifold subassemblies for life science and medical devices provide:

  • Smaller instrument footprint - Microfluidic subassemblies enable engineers to design shorter flow paths for lower reagent consumption and overall smaller equipment size by increasing component density. In addition, the resulting smaller footprint gives instrument builders greater overall design flexibility.
  • Ease of assembly & integration - A fluid control system can comprise several dozen valves, sensors, and other components. Each of these has to be mounted and connected. In contrast, a manifold subassembly with components already mounted, is ready to be plugged into a machine with just a few connections. This significantly reduces assembly time and labor costs while also reducing the possibility of connection errors.
  • Reliability - Manifold subassemblies limit the number of leak points by eliminating tubing and fittings within a system. This leads to a more robust system design and better instrument performance. Manifold subassemblies also allow for easier maintenance enabling responsive field support and lower instrument downtime.
  • Materials flexibility - Manifold bodies can be fabricated out of a wide variety of materials such as PEEK, Ultem, and PTFE to ensure chemical resistance, other plastics for lightweight design, laminated acrylics and glass components for optical clarity, and rugged metals where needed across an array of life science and medical device applications.

Our expertise

We translate your blueprint to brilliance in manifold subassemblies:

  • Experience - Whether it's a pneumatic manifold for medical gas mixing and delivery or flow cells for flow cytometry, we have the breadth of products and expertise to provide engineers and scientists with an OEM fluidic system that is on time, within budget, and to the required specifications. Our team comes from a wide variety of technical backgrounds in engineering, science, and manufacturing. We understand scientific challenges, develop solutions, and deliver quality products.
  • Flexibility - We understand specifications can change over time, so we have the flexibility to modify project scope and technical requirements to meet the ever changing needs of your product launch.
  • Integration - Most components are manufactured by our 22 global production facilities. This ensures quality, communication, and seamless integration of components into a unique, robust subassembly. This also allows our production to be easily scalable from low minimum order quantities to dedicated work cells so our production can grow as your business grows.
  • Quality - Our LEAN and ISO9001:2015 facilities manufacture subassemblies for long-lasting performance and serviceability. We bring every project through a comprehensive process to ensure the final product meets your most demanding specifications through DFMEA, APQP process, first articles, and full production. We handle the most stringent manufacturing requirements leveraging our Class 10000 clean rooms, oxygen cleaning techniques, and our ability to meet and exceed a variety of regulatory compliance standards.
