Connectors Accommodate Wide Range of Small-Flow ApplicationsColder Products Company announces the expansion of the MPC quick disconnect product line to include hose barbs suitable for smaller flexible tubing with 1/8” (3.2 mm) ID. MPC couplings are offered in polycarbonate and polysulfone materials and can be used in a wide range of small flow applications such as fermentation sampling, modular tubing manifolds and lab scale additions.

MPC Series connectors offer added security over luer fittings and reduced connection times compared to tube welders. Colder’s 1/8” MPC connector is designed to mate with any corresponding MPC connector, independent of hose barb size, which eases the implementation for manufacturers that have already validated the existing MPC Series connectors.

“Our customers have been requesting a quick disconnect alternative to small-bore luers to eliminate the risk of contamination that occurs when luer fittings unintentionally open due to twisting of tubing or system vibration,” said John Boehm, business unit manager, bioprocessing markets. “MPC connectors have been an industry standard for more than 15 years and the new 1/8” hose barb is one of many upcoming product line additions that increase process flexibility and provide secure, leak-free performance.”

Colder’s bioprocessing connections are manufactured in an ISO Class 7 certified cleanroom and meet USP Class VI and ADCF requirements. Contact Colder for validation test summaries, biocompatibility and extractables data.

Colder Products Company, a leader in single-use connection technology, will feature the 1/8” MPC connector and other new products at BioProcess International (Booth #323) at the Long Beach Convention Center, California. Attendees have the opportunity to meet with company experts and discuss how to connect with Colder.
