Press release date: October 8, 2012
St. Paul, Minn. – Colder Products Company, the leader in the design and manufacture of single-use connection technology and connectors for the life science markets, announces the availability of AseptiQuik® X 1-inch connectors for large-format applications. With AseptiQuik X, biopharmaceutical manufacturers now have access to a complete line of robust, sterile connectors with flow configurations ranging from 1/8-inch to 1-inch. The new connectors will be showcased at BioProcess International 2012 (Booth #320) at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, R.I. Colder experts will be available to show event attendees how they can easily incorporate the new connection technology into their single-use applications.
“With the growing acceptance of large scale single-use systems in the 1,000 – 3,000L range, there is increasing demand for high flow connectors,” said John Boehm, business unit manager, bioprocessing markets for Colder Products Company. “Our new AseptiQuik X provides around three and a half times the flow rate of a 1/2-inch connector, minimizing the number of connections required for large format applications while at the same time maintaining system robustness and product sterility.”
AseptiQuik X large format 1-inch connectors provide quick and easy sterile connections for high flow applications, even in non-sterile environments. The intuitive “TWIST-PULL-TWIST” design enables users to transfer large volumes of media at an expedited rate, saving valuable time and improving process efficiencies.
