Sensors and controls for fluid handling

Gems delivers custom components, engineered fluidic systems and integrated sub-assemblies better than any other company. We combine a unique array of intelligent sensors, world-class lean manufacturing tools and ISO quality processes to manufacture the right solution for your needs, built on a solid foundation of core product families to measure, monitor, and control liquids and gases, including:

  • Sensors: level, flow, pressure and temperature
  • Controls: solenoid valves, pumps and regulators
  • Fluid handling: manifolds, bottles and tubing sets

Fluid handling equipment for medical and life science markets

We serve a broad spectrum of market segments in the medical and life science markets.

The concept, feasibility and project plan phase begins by listening to our clients' product requirements. We then define: project goals, user requirements, functional specifications and develop proof of concepts demonstrating product feasibility.
Once the concept is ready for development Gems’ engineers utilize proven product design processes to successfully progress the concept to prototype.
Prototypes undergo verification testing in our lab to ensure design requirements are met.
Fundamental to Gems' manufacturing system is the lean philosophy of waste elimination, continuous improvement and client focus. The starting point is our client – manufacturing systems are optimized to satisfy the customer.
With stringent ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 quality control processes in place, Gems Sensors & Controls ensures the quality of all new and existing designs.
  • In vitro diagnostics (IVD): clinical and immuno-chemistry, hematology, molecular, microbiology and histology
  • Life sciences: genomics / proteomics, mass spectrometry, chromatography (liquid and gas), flow cytometry and lab water
  • Therapeutic devices: respiratory, medical lasers, renal / dialysis, surgical / patient care
