10x Faster Aseptic Filling with Single-Use Plug and Play Setup
Minimize filling time with an efficient aliquoting solution that pumps fluid to 10 bags simultaneously.
The Linkit® AX Aliquoting Solution is ideal for aliquoting small quantities of process fluids - fast, evenly, and reproducible batch-to-batch. The plug & play concept, combined with ready-to-use patented manifold design, minimizes operator effort and error and consistently distributes fluid between the 10 bags with an accuracy of ±5%. The solution is designed to address the pain points of manual filling and aliquoting applications without the need to heavily invest in big and complex equipment.

There is no product like the Linkit® AX in the market today
Aliquoting is a common task in bioprocessing - often done manually, with all the pain points that accompanies the use of traditional bag manifolds: bulky, difficult to handle & manipulate and prone to operator error.
Fully automated aliquoting systems require considerable capital investment and are more suited to drug substance and drug product filling applications.
The Linkit® AX aliquoting system is the first simultaneous filling solution, offering fast filling with a distribution accuracy of ±5.1% and not requiring an initial high capital expenditure cost.
