Specialized coupling provides added flexibility for making connections

Colder Products Company, the leader in the design and manufacture of single-use connection technology and connectors for the life sciences markets, announces the expansion of its MPC/MPX Back-to-Back Adapters product offering to now include inserts. MPC/MPX Back-to-Back Adapters give end users the flexibility of connecting single-use systems that feature identical coupling connections at the end of their tubing.

“MPC and MPX quick connects are an industry standard and the new back-to-back insert adapters build upon the successful introduction of our back-to-back body adapters,” said John Boehm, business unit manager, bioprocessing markets. “End-users will benefit from the added process flexibility of connecting two separate single-use systems that both incorporate female body connectors, as well as easily combining systems that incorporate different tubing sizes.”

The easy-to-use MPC/MPX Back-to-Back Adapters provide a solution for end-users when challenged with making a connection with identical connector halves. Combining both MPC and MPX couplings provides a reducing option for users who need to transition between tubing diameters ranging from 1/8- to 1/2-inch.

MPC/MPX Back-to-Back insert adapters are compatible with industry standard MPC and MPX polycarbonate and polysulfone female connectors. Able to withstand gamma and autoclave sterilization, MPC/MPX Back-to-Back insert adapters are offered in polysulfone material. Colder’s bioprocessing connections are manufactured in an ISO Class 7 certified cleanroom and meet USP Class VI material standards.

The new MPC/MPX Back-to-Back insert adapters are an addition to Colder’s family of single-use connectors that include sterile connect and disconnect solutions. Available in a full range of 1/8- to 1-inch flow configurations, the single-use connection technology from CPC provides ease-of-use, robust construction and reliable performance for transferring valuable media for a wide range of applications including single-use bag and tubing assemblies, cell banking systems, bioreactors, mixers, sampling and filling.
