The Micro 10 rocker isolation valve's envelope size is designed to be 40 percent smaller than comparable 16 mm designs, but with orifice diameters reduced by only 10 percent. This reduction allows equipment and instrument manufacturers to pack more valves into the same space for greater functionality, or helps reduce laboratory costs by shrinking the size of the equipment or instrument. The valve's smaller internal volume enables more effective flushing of materials through the device. This eliminates the waste of expensive reagents and fluids that might collect in a larger valve body.
