AseptiQuik(TM) Connectors Create Quick and Easy Sterile Connections Even in Non-Sterile Environments
St. Paul, MN - Biopharmaceutical manufacturers seeking a robust sterile connector for single-use processing now have a reliable, easy-to-use solution: AseptiQuik(TM) Connectors from Colder Products Company. The connector's intuitive "Click, Pull, Twist" design reduces complexity and risk of operator error.
"Manufacturers migrating to single-use systems have expressed the need for a robust sterile connector that is truly easy to use," said John Boehm, business unit manager, bioprocessing, Colder Products Company. "AseptiQuik Connectors enable users to make a simple and reliable sterile connection without the need for additional clamps, fixtures or tube welders."
AseptiQuik Connectors enable sterile media transfer, even in non-sterile environments. The intuitive three-step process enables operators to quickly connect two single-use assemblies: an audible CLICK confirms the initial connection, PULL tabs allow simultaneous membrane removal and a simple TWIST of the integrated lock ring provides secure final assembly.
Extensive validation testing completed on post gamma and autoclave sterilized connectors confirms that external organisms are prevented from entering the flow path before, during or after connection. Testing includes functional performance, biocompatibility and three types of microbial ingress tests.
Whether in seed trains applications, suite-to-suite transfer or filling operations, manufacturers can protect their valuable product with sterile connection technology. AseptiQuik connectors from Colder Products Company provide the security and reliability expected from the leader in single-use connectors.
