Connectors are designed to securely join tubing together or to facilitate the joining of tubing to other fluid pathway components. We offer multiport connectors with different thread and port configurations to meet your system requirements and connection needs. Some of our connectors feature a True ZDV (Zero Dead Volume) internal configuration that helps minimize the formation of dead volume in your fluidic pathway. Our versatile adapters help bring two connectors with different configurations together. Connectors are manufactured from 316 stainless steel or from inert polymers to ensure chemical compatibility with the fluid passing through. Peristaltic tube connectors are ideal for making connections with soft-walled, peristaltic tubing. Our extensive line of connectors includes tees, crosses, Luer Adapters, barbed and threaded adapters and a variety of other options.

Threaded Adpaters – Two of the many challenges researchers face regularly, are trying to use one style of fitting for all connections, or trying to join two different sizes of tubing. To assist in overcoming these challenges we have engineered one of the most extensive threaded adapter lines available. Threaded Adapters come in a wide variety of configurations to meet your system requirements. They are designed to effectively bring together connectors with different threads. We offer them in English, Metric, and NPT versions. Manufactured from inert polymers and stainless steel they deliver excellent chemical resistance. See attached for Product List – Threaded Adapters.
High Pressure Multiport Connectors – Our diverse selection of high pressure multiport connectors includes products that can be easily used where high pressure tolerance is necessary. Our high pressure multiport connectors are designed to address the need to bring more than two pieces of tubing (or accessories) together in the high-pressure region of a system. Included in these connectors are high pressure unions, elbow connectors, tees & crosses and MicroTight Unions. Each product can used to meet your system requirements with pressure ratings of up to 20000 psi (1380 bar).

MicroTight Adapters – Designed to created easy, convenient connections for common 1/16” OD to capillary tubing. In addition, these adapters can offer direct connect to 1/32” OD or 360μm OD tubing options as well. MicroTight Adapters create a true zero dead volume (ZDV) connection.

NanoPort Assemblies and Accessories – B NanoPort Assemblies provide consistent fluid connections for chip-based analyses. Our unique design prevents adhesive contamination of the fluid path. Once attached, NanoPort connections can withstand pressures to 1,000 psi (69 bar).* NanoPorts will adhere to silicon, quartz, glass and some polymers. All NanoPort components are made of inert, biocompatible PEEK polymer (nuts and ports) and perfluoroelastomer (ferrules and gaskets). NanoPort connections add no additional volume to the fluid path, virtually eliminating dead volume traditionally associated with chip-based fluid connections.

Low Pressure Multiport Connectors – Our diverse selection of low pressure multiport connectors includes products that can be easily used in low pressure regions of a system where a dependable connection is essential. Included in these connectors are unions, elbow connectors, tees & crosses and manifolds. Each product can used to meet your system requirements with pressure ratings of up to 2000 psi (138 bar).

Luer Adapters – Specifically esigned to work in a variety of applications by securely connecting a male or female luer to each other. Our Luer Adapter products include our LuerTight™ Fittings which allow you to connect and disconnect quickly to fluoropolymer tubing without the use of barbs or nuts. Our Quick Connect Luer Adapters allow for a quick and secure connection.

UltraHigh Pressure Multiport Connectors – We offer a unique line of specialized Ultra High Pressure Multiport Connectors for UHPLC applications. Our connectors deliver zero dead volume (ZDV) allowing for a more secure fluidic path. They are specifically designed to work with UHPLC pressures. The materials used for these connectors are durable stainless and a biocompatible proprietary blend of PEEK.

Peristaltic Tube Connectors – Our Peristaltic Tube Connectors are ideal for making connections with soft-walled, peristaltic tubing. We offer ways to adapt soft-walled tubing with rigid-walled tubing; soft-walled tubing to products with a luer terminus; soft-walled tubing to threaded ports; as well as ways to connect soft-walled tubing to one or more other soft-walled tubes. With all the options offered, you have a great chance to find the Peristaltic Tube Connector you are looking for.
