​Lead Times Reduced by 50% for Customized Analytical and Medical Valves and Assemblies

Florham Park, New Jersey, U.S.A. - August 2, 2016 - ASCO has introduced its Engineered Solutions Program, which cuts the lead times for customized valve and manifold assemblies by up to 50% for the analytical and medical instrument markets. The new program leverages the expertise and resources of the company’s Analytical and Medical Technology groups in the Americas, Europe, and Asia.

“Our research indicates that most original equipment manufacturer (OEM) engineers at life science instrument companies are dissatisfied with the present lengthy lead times for customized valves and manifold assemblies,” said Robert W. Kemple, Jr., executive vice president, sales and marketing – Americas, ASCO. “The Engineered Solutions Program harnesses our team’s extensive expertise in miniature valve customization to achieve dramatically faster product development and lead times.”

They are backed by the Advanced and Medical Technology groups’ prototype labs, ASCO valves and assemblies designed for quick and efficient manufacturing, and local technical support provided by product specialists trained in analytical and medical applications.

Capabilities from ASCO include:

  • Complete solution provider for value-added miniature valve assemblies and modules
  • Technical expertise for co-developing solutions with OEMs
  • Rapid turnaround times from design to 3D modeling and prototyping
  • Global manufacturing, sales, and technical support
  • Class 8 clean room manufacturing to minimize contamination
  • Long lifecycle products tested to over 100 million cycles
  • Very low internal valve volumes to minimize cross-contamination and improve flushability
  • Optional power saving functions for improved energy efficiency

The Engineered Solutions Program is ideal for OEMs designing clinical diagnostic, bioinstrumentation, chromatography, hospital and dental equipment, industrial analyzers, patient monitoring, and surgical and oxygen therapy applications.
