This series of holders are designed for use in application involving pressure and/or suction such as microinjection. They can be used with instruments such as our PLI-100A Picoliter Microinjection System. All of the MPH series holders are supplied with a 3.25 inch stainless steel handle. The seals are adjustable and on the MPH-PSW model there is a replaceable Ag wire that does not require soldering. Two types of side ports are available, a standard female Leur port or an internally threaded side port designed to accommodate a standard 1/4-28-thread fitting.
