Colder Products Company MicroCNX Series Connectors provide an alternative to tube welding for small-volume, closed aseptic processes.

MicroCNX connectors are specifically designed for small-volume processes involving 1/16 in. (1.6 mm), 3/32 in. (2.4 mm), and 1/8 in. (3.2 mm) small-bore tubing. The connectors can be incorporated into pre-made tubing assemblies.

To use the aseptic connector, users must pinch to remove the protective cover, click together the connector halves, and pull out the protective membranes to allow flow to begin. This process is intended to be a simpler solution to traditional tube welding, which requires maneuvering the tube welder into position, equipment maintenance, and precise technique.
