Steam-Thru Connections from Colder Products Co., made of Polysulfone, are available in sizes that mate with 3/8-inch and ½-inch ID Tubing. Sanitary terminations are available in ¾ inch or 1 1/2 inch. They allow a quick and easy sterile connection between biopharmaceutical processing equipment and disposable bag and tube assemblies.
The new capabilities brochure highlights One-Touch® single-use systems. It gives an overview of each of the primary products within the single-use portfolio, including TepoFlex® PE and FluoroFlex® PVDF biocontainer assemblies.
The company, specializing in providing products and services to the vaccine production and bioprocessing industries, has launched PharmaTainer™ sterile single-use containers for storage, freezing and manipulation of biological solutions.
Single-use technologies are becoming increasingly common in many manufacturing situations, especially those that require high levels of sanitation and isolation for consumer safety. Although stainless steel offers a number of unique benefits, disposables are undoubtedly emerging as a leader in the high-stakes world of pharmaceutical manufacturing.
The company recently released an expansion to its disposable products portfolio with the new single-use mixing system, imPULSE. The single-use mixing system allows manufacturers to mix their powder/liquid or liquid/liquid solutions in an environment which eliminates cross contamination, requires less validation and efficiently requires shorter cycle times.
The company has expanded the Mobius® CellReady Bioreactor portfolio with the launch of a 50 L single-use stirred tank bioreactor for process development and pilot scale mammalian cell culture. This new single-use bioreactor allows biopharmaceutical manufacturers to implement robust, single-use technologies that bring their drugs to market faster, with less risk.
The company is launching its line of Single-Use Conductivity Sensors (patent pending), which will be offered in a wide range of sizes for in-line measurement, with an initial sizes of ¼-inch and ½-inch hose barb. The conductivity sensor measurement range is 0 to 200 mS with readability of 0.01 mS.
The company has introduced a technologically advanced series of ports for the single-use bags used to transfer media and drug compounds in the biopharmaceutical industry.
Today there is a continued accelerating evolution in CMO and traditional biomanufacturing to Single-Use Systems (SUS) and disposable technologies. While this term, ‘disposable’ has been used since the inception of the technology in the 80’s, the polymeric device manufacturers found the ‘single-use’ moniker a more ‘green’ label for their products.
