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.”
