Please be assured that Aquasyn has taken, and will continue to take, all measures necessary to ensure minimal disruption to our manufacturing capability and our ability to deliver our high-quality products in a timely fashion, while at the same time complying with all governmental mandates towards reducing the transmission risks related to COVID-19.
On Thursday February 6th, Vincent “Mitch” Mitchell of Aquasyn attended the IndieBio Demo Day at the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco, Ca. Aquasyn seeks to align ourselves with, support and advocate for up and coming companies who take part in the IndieBio Programs.
Cellular agriculture is the process of cultivating and harvesting animal cells in a laboratory environment. By replicating naturally occurring biological processes in a controlled setting, companies can create meat, dairy, or any other desired animal product, without harvesting an animal.
Custom diaphragm valve design has been a staple of Aquasyn's business since its inception. From 3-way diverters with integral drain valves, to sterile access combinations with specialized instrument ports, we strive to leverage our 20+ years of experience to address our customers’ unique concerns and applications. With their initial diagram in hand, one of the first critical decisions to make is which manufacturing method best suits the customer’s needs: fabricated or a machined block style valve.
While sanitary diaphragm valves are well suited to a variety of applications, many manufacturers ignore the inherent difference in quality standards of the biotech industry by offering an industrial valve that is simply re-branded as “aseptic” or “hygienic”. When you compare the value of product lost due to contamination in the biotech industry to almost any other field, the need for a sanitary diaphragm valve developed specifically for these high purity applications becomes clear.
This is to update you about a serious concern. We have recently learned of the efforts of third parties to manufacture, distribute and/or sell diaphragms that imitate those of Aquasyn LLC. Such imitation diaphragms are not authorized by Aquasyn LLC.
