Single Use Connector Systems
The single use connector systems developed by Aseptic Technologies aims to transfer liquid across a wall separating a high quality clean area (e.g., ISO5 area) from a lower quality area.
Typical liquid transfers include:
• Entry of the formulated bulk into a filling line surrounded by an isolator or a RABS
• Entry of the formulated bulk into a filling line located in an ISO5clean room
• Entry of formulation components into a formulation area
• Exit of formulation bulk from a formulation area to a storage container or a filling area
• Exit of waste from a processing isolators
The principle of the transfer is based on the alpha-beta concept which enables liquid sterile products to be transferred easily and safely, towards or from contained areas through the use of a mini Rapid Transfer Port. The connector can re-closed and re-opened within a short period of time for specific application (e.g., in case of filling line breakdown).
Aseptic Technologies and Sartorius-Stedim Biotech signed a Distribution Agreement in November of 2005 covering worldwide distribution of the connectors and the Rapid Transfer Ports. The connector is commercialized under the brand name SARTTM.
