    What Is an MPC connector?

    MPC connectors are multipurpose, open-format connectors for use in a wide variety of critical fluid-handling applications. This particular type of connector is perfect for smaller bag systems for aliquoted media or other products stored in bags.


    MPC Connectors from CPC

    MPC connectors add ease of use and security to your most critical fluid handling applications. Choose from a full line of male and female MPC connectors and configurations, including pressure sealing caps and plugs, in sizes to fit 1/8", 1/4" and 3/8" tubing. MPC couplings offer optional locking sleeves to further guard against accidental disconnects. In addition, coupling halves can be rotated when connected to reduce tube kinks.
