IH&S Launches new MarvelXACT™ PEEKsil™ Connection System

Company News
December 21, 2020

With much of the market shifting from HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography) to UHPLC (Ultra High Performance Liquid Chromatography) bio applications, IDEX Health & Science added a new MarvelXACT™ PEEKsil™ Connection System to their BioVersal™ line of products this month.

The new connection system solves a recurring problem with UHPLC instruments, which separate compounds for drug discovery and to test quality in food products and pharmaceuticals.

In the past, fittings would break if over-tightened or leak if not tightened enough.

To help resolve the reoccurring problem, the IH&S engineering, sales, procurement, planning and production teams collaborated to develop MarvelXact, allowing UHPLC technicians to finger-tighten the fitting. Like with an automobile gas cap, it clicks once it reaches the right tightness.

Using patented PEEK lined stainless steel and MarvelX™ connections technology, scientists and engineers are provided precise face sealing, eliminating additional internal volume, and minimizing carryover risk, peak tailing, and peak broadening.

“MarvelXACT PEEKsil can be used as a replacement for PEEK and SST tubing especially where chemical compatibility and low absorption is required” said Audrey Schrock, Sr. Product Manager, Valves and Column Hardware. “We are enabling more robust low-flow analysis data for applications that are highly sensitive and require chemical inertness.”

IDEX corporate employees from the Northbrook and downtown Chicago offices, competed against each other to purchase gifts online for local Illinois children who have experienced trauma.

The ”Kids Above All” Virtual Holiday Drive included a friendly competition, with IDEX corporate team members split into teams to see which group could donate the most gifts. The solution for holding the toy drive, created because in-person donations were not possible during the pandemic, was hugely successful.

In just three weeks, about 150 corporate team members came together to donate more than 800 gifts, which were delivered straight from retailers to Kids Above All for distribution.

“On behalf of the 2,488 kids and families in our programs, we are amazed by and truly grateful for the generosity of everyone at IDEX,” said Kids Above All Director of Marketing and Communications Andrew Dohan. “Your partnership and support ensure they experience the joy and happiness of the season and makes their holiday wishes come true.”

‘Kids Above All’, is an organization that protects, heals and educates children and families who have experienced trauma – including abuse, neglect, poverty, toxic stress, and violence.

With the mission of helping others build better lives, the organization uses a trauma-informed, clinical framework called Attachment, Regulation and Competency (ARC) to encourage healing and personal growth so they can realize their dreams.

IH&S Rochester, IDEX Foundation Support Kids Impacted by Remote Learning

Company News
December 7, 2020

IDEX Health & Science in New York recently partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Rochester (BGCR) to provide support as COVID-19 continues to disproportionately affect minorities in the community.

In collaboration with the IDEX Foundation, IH&S Rochester provided a $22,800 donation to BGCR, which will cover the costs of one tutor for nine months, additional space barriers for STEM classrooms, and breakfast and lunch for 50 kids for nine months.

When the Rochester city school district switched to 100% virtual learning, parents in frontline jobs — who could not work remotely — began struggling to juggle work and care for their children. Although virtual learning keeps everyone safe, it has been particularly challenging for minority populations with lower incomes. Schools also provided a meal for kids who otherwise would not have food available at home.

By providing these funds, parents can focus more on work, while their kids have a safe place to continue learning virtually and be fed breakfast in addition to lunch.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Rochester has a club membership of nearly 1,500 young people ages 6 to 18, with 98% membership of African American descent. Two-thirds of club members reside in single parent households, while 91% qualify for free lunch programs. While anyone residing in Monroe County can join the Club, most club members live in the poorest parts of Rochester called “The Crescent.” It represents the “C” that surrounds the City of Rochester where poverty is most prevalent.
