The FlexFill™ single-use biocontainer transfer assembly is ideally suited for applications requiring fast and dependable aseptic transfer of small liquid process volumes. It provides a convenient way to aseptically transfer bottled cell culture media, sera, reagents, supplements, buffers and microcarriers to a bioreactor. It mitigates the risk of product contamination and effectively addresses the challenges associated with directly transferring sterile bottled liquids to single-use or multiple-use bioreactor systems in non-permissive environments. It is easy to operate and its extra-large screw cap port and unique location allow for rapid and convenient filling of the biocontainer assembly. This step is easily conducted aseptically inside a laminar flow hood using the portable stainless steel FlexCessory™ stand. Once filled, the liquid can either be stored in the biocontainer assembly or transferred, incrementally or in its entirety, without any hold up volume to your culture system. The assemblies can be customized to support aseptic connectivity with a host of fitting and tubing options to allow for a seamless interface with your process. The fluid transfer assembly is part of the company’s expanding single-use liquid handling portfolio. It is manufactured from the company’s fully qualified pharmaceutical-grade TepoFlex® film. It is delivered sterile and is available in volumes from 500 mL to 6 L.
