ASCO’s Rapid Engineered Solutions program can deliver customized miniature valve assemblies to analytical and medical instrument original equipment manufacturing (OEM) customers within 2-to-10 days.

The program leverages expertise and resources of analytical and medical teams in the Americas, Europe, and Asia. The groups have in-house additive manufacturing and 3D-printing capabilities for validation testing.

When an OEM instrument is released to production, ASCO will build engineered solution, in one of three Class 8 equivalent clean rooms to minimize contamination. Optional power saving functions are available, and all customizations are designed for manufacturability.
