- The AseptiQuik® S 1/8- and ¼-inch connectors feature a genderless, easy-to-use design for reliable performance without the need for clamps, fixtures or tube welders. Applications include single-use bioreactors, cell banking and a range of sampling applications, whereas terminations include 1/8-inch hose barb, 1/4-inch hose barb, 3/4-inch sanitary and an MPC male insert.
- The AseptiQuik® X 1-inch connector provides quick and easy sterile connections, even in non-sterile environments.
