​​​​​​​​​Fluid Automation Solutions for the Analytical and Medical Markets
ASCO > Analytical-and-medical

  • Fluid Automation products such as valves, that are used in analytical and medical machines must meet the very stringent requirements demanded by the legislative bodies that control the manufacture of goods for these markets. This means that standard products are not normally suitable. ASCO offers a broad range of valves especially designed for gas and liquids handling for industries such as medical, biomedical and industrial analysis.

  • ASCO’s offering includes miniature products such as pinch valves for contamination-free operation, fluid isolated and inert valves for the control of aggressive fluids, miniature pilot valves and a range of proportional valves.

  • Most applications in these industries are unique. ASCO are experts in designing solutions. These could combine one or more functions into one product or could include specially designed body units or connection types. Typical applications would be dental technology, microbiology, anaesthetics and respiratory technology.

  • Valves and Customized Solutions​ for analysis and instrumentation include specifically designed body units or connection types. Typical applications would be dental technology. microbiology, anaesthetics and respiratory technology.

Capabilities

ASCO has been setting the standards in valves for analytical and medical technology for over 20 years. The valves and assemblies developed for this purpose are especially suited to gas and fluid handling applications in the fields of medicine, biomedicine and industrial analytics.

The specialist engineers at ASCO possess detailed knowledge of this sector to enable them to meet your application needs.

Medical Technology

Medical technologies includes apparatus and processes in which the valves will come partially or directly into contact with fluids introduced into or taken from patients. e.g. the handling of medical gases in respirators or the handling of liquids in dialysis.
This field of application requires the use of inert materials, a low dead volume, low power consumption as well as easy-to-flush internals or system cavities.
Medical product laws require compliance with applicable legal requirements. Many applications require a hermetic separation between the fluid (liquid or gas) and the internal parts of the valves.

Analytical Technology

Analytical technologies include apparatus used in medical, scientific or industrial laboratories for analysing gasses or liquids.The valves in these machines and processes do not come into direct contact with a patient, they are mainly designed to handle aggressive gases and liquids instead. Analytical applications require resistance to aggressive fluids (inert valves), a low dead volume and an easy-to-flush design. To reduce heat transfer into the fluid, valves with a low power consumption are often specified.
