Guard Against Disconnects with a Secure Lock

The RQC Series and RQX Series offer a cost effective solution for flexible tubing connections in single use systems. The connector set is best in fit, form and function, and features a user-friendly interface that includes a large guarded button for a secure lock to guard against disconnects, and lofted lead-in for improved ease of connection. The more reliable locking feature gives you peace of mind knowing your connection is secure. The offer includes caps and plugs to support sterilization and shipment needs. Available in widely used polypropylene and polycarbonate materials, these connectors are compatible with industry standard quick connects to simplify qualification.*

A complete set of validation and test results are available to support customer needs, including extractables and leachables profiles.
