For over 35 years, the management of MK Fluidic Systems has understood the most important aspect of a syringe is the glass barrel. There are numerous options for seal materials and configurations. The syringe’s performance will always be heavily impacted by the quality of the glass barrel. In every instance where either our customer or MK Fluidic Systems compared and tested syringes side-by-side versus the competition, MKFS has achieved the longest syringe life.
Our highly skilled team members operate specialized machinery to ensure each glass barrel has been fabricated with the tightest tolerance, ensuring volumetric accuracy and consistency. Optical screening is also used to inspect for defects that would impact the performance of the syringe. A final proprietary polishing step ensures the bore of the glass is as smooth as possible, to improve the life of the syringe.
We design and manufacture syringes for the OEM marketplace to a customer’s requirements using various plunger rod assemblies, end cap configurations, glass barrels, and options such as plunger rod guides.
Replacement syringes are available with numerous plunger tip materials such as PTFE or UHMW-PE.
These include syringes for use on the following syringe pumps:XC, XLP, XE, XP, XL, XMP, C3000, MC6000, V6, NX3, PSD/4, PSD/6, and PDS/8
PEEK can be used where stainless steel is not chemically compatible. The inertness and the thermal stability make this a great material for highly corrosive applications.
These syringes are designed with very low cross-sections where the sealing band meets the glass. This is to minimize the coefficient thermal expansion of the thermal plastic and can operate well at temperatures as low as 0 degrees Fahrenheit
Compact designs allow for easier integrations into automated liquid handlers. Small form factors don't come at the expense of accuracy and these syringes are capable of CV's below 0.5%.
For applications where borosilicate glass isn't compatible, we manufacture polymer syringes. These syringes are capable of the same precision as our borosilicate syringes by using precision-ground pistons to control the amount of fluid being dispensed.
