Six Channel Perfusion Valve Control Systems (VC-6, VC-6M)
These perfusion valve control systems are uncomplicated, easy to operate, and designed to control up to six separate valves.
- Manual or computer control
- Basic or complete systems available
- Pinch valves, standard
- PTFE valves, optional
- Mini valve, optional
|The VC-6 Valve Controller is configured to control up to 6 valves. Each valve is individually controlled by a manual switch or an external digital (TTL) signal. An event marker pulse, generated each time a valve is switched on, is provided for tape or chart recordings.|
|VC-6 Standard Pinch Valve Systems Standard systems are supplied with pinch valves as shown in the right hand side picture. They are the simplest to maintain as the solution never comes in contact with the valve and tubings are easily changed. Valves are dual acting (3-way) with both normally open and closed sides. A Y connector at the valve input permits solution flow to waste with the valve off.|
These valves are 2-way (either ON or OFF).
|VC-6M Mini-Valve Systems The VC-6M is designed for slow flow perfusion systems where smaller diameter tubing is used. These mini-valves, as shown in the ride hand side picture, mount directly to a compact PTFE manifold. The 3-way valves allow for solutions to flow to waste if desired. The VC-6M system is ideally suited for use with the SF-77B perfusion stepper systems.|
System Choices, Basic or Complete
The VC-6 Valve Perfusion Control System is available in two configurations with a choice of either a standard pinch valve or PTFE Valve. The Basic Systems include the VC-6 Controller, Valves, Valve Bracket with 8 ft long Cable and MP Series Manifold. The systems with the standard pinch valve are also supplied with C-Flex Valve Tubing.
The Complete VC-6 Systems includes all of the components in the Basic Systems plus six 60 cc Reservoirs, Reservoir Holder, Ring Stand, Stopcocks and Tubing Connectors. In addition to that, the systems with a standard pinch valve are supplied with Tygon Tubing (1/32 in x 50 ft, ID x L). The systems with a PTFE valve include PTFE tubing (1/16 in x 25 ft, ID x L).
The VC-6M Mini-Valve Perfusion Control System is also available in two configurations. The Basic Systems include the VC-6 Controller, Valves, Valve Manifold, 8 ft Cable and ML Series Manifold. The Complete Systems include all of the components in the Basic Systems plus eight 10cc Reservoirs, Reservoir Holder, Ring Stand, Stopcocks, Tubing Connectors and two packages of PE-50 Tubing (50 ft long).
