Nordson MEDICAL recently announced a new manifold that makes assembly and operation simpler compared with products used currently in the industry. This patent-pending product was announced at ACHEMA in Frankfurt, Germany, earlier this year. Simplicity is the main benefit of the design and user interface built into CYLINDRAFlow™ system. There is a one-to-one relationship between the inlet port and the five available outlet ports. The large, easy to use handle with clearly marked arrows provides a visual indication of which outlet port is in use. Once properly positioned, the handle locks in place, assuring an operator that the flow path is set up correctly and that it can’t accidentally change.
By keeping a consistent flow from the inlet port, around the manifold, and through an outlet port, users can easily operate the manifold and transfer fluids to storage bags. Nordson MEDICAL suggests using the previously used port for flushing to reduce cross contamination and dead-leg concerns. The handle can be moved backwards to accomplish this. Once the flushing operation is complete, an operator can use either a PharmaLok™ tube clamp or tubing sealer to close off that flow path.
