The Lynx® CDR (Connect, Disconnect and Reconnect) device provides a reliable and validated connection for multiple transfers of sterile fluids. Part of the
Mobius® single-use bioprocessing family, it is designed to provide flexibility in single-use bioprocessing by enabling up to six connections, disconnections and reconnections of multiple flow paths, while remaining sterile and leak free.
Quick and Easy Connections and Disconnections
When used on a single-use assembly, the Lynx® CDR connector allows you to connect, start and stop flow, disconnect, and reconnect up to six times. Comprised of three core parts: a Female Valve, Sterile Housing and a Male Valve, Lynx® CDR was designed with ease of use in mind.
A Range of Configurations
The Lynx® CDR connector is available in a wide range of sizes, from 3/8- inch hose barb to 1 ½ inch TC, and configurations from sampling to intermediate additions to bulk liquid transfer. Unlike standard single aseptic connections, the gamma sterilized ready-to-use disposable assembly with Lynx® CDR connector assures sterility throughout multiple connections in your overall system.
