MicroFluidic Systems Provide Improved Control Of Small Sample Reagents & Solvents In Medical, Biomedical & Analytical Processes

MicroFluidic Systems Provide Improved Control Of Small Sample Reagents & Solvents In Medical, Biomedical & Analytical Processes
Every day, new types of machines and equipment are being designed and developed that push forward the boundaries of medical science. In this continuing offensive, specialist MicroFluidic products for medical, biomedical and analytical applications are playing a key role, delivering, through automation and miniaturisation, greater efficiency in existing processes (faster sequences, higher throughput, smaller sample and solvent volumes and lower costs), and enabling newer processes in areas such as genetic research, chromatography and pharmaceuticals.

Controlling Complex Processes in Hazardous Zones 1/21 Using Decentralised Electrical & Pneumatic Systems & Fieldbus Comms

Controlling Complex Processes in Hazardous Zones 1/21 Using Decentralised Electrical & Pneumatic Systems & Fieldbus Comms
Working with volatile liquids and gases is an everyday occurrence in pharmaceutical and chemical industries, often involving hazardous: i.e. explosive, atmospheres (ATEX rated 1/21). Historically, this has meant that control cabinets combining electrical and pneumatic devices could not be used in these areas. This was due to the risk of corrosion of electrical parts, which could subsequently cause an explosion. Today, a new solution permits the combination of electrical and pneumatic devices with Fieldbus communications, even in zone 1/21 environments. Developed by Burkert, this combines the company’s AirLINE Ex 8650 system with modules from the intrinsically safe SIMATIC ET 200iSP system from Siemens. It provides users with a complete ATEX certified unit for use in zone 1/21, achieving cost savings by delivering substantial reductions in cabinet space, wiring, documentation and validation.
