St. Paul, Minn. - Colder Products Company, the leader in the design and manufacture of single-use connection technology and connectors for the life sciences markets, announces that its Steam-Thru® Connections product offering has been honored with the Technology of the Decade award in the manufacturing pillar category by the 2012 BioProcess International Awards. The awards, whose theme is "Honoring a Decade of BioProcess," recognize the products, services, partnerships and people that have had the greatest positive impact on bioprocessing.
The first single-use connection technology to create a sterile connection between stainless steel processing equipment and single-use systems, Colder's Steam-Thru Connections enable a quick and easy sterile connection, minimize risk of cross-contamination, and reduce labor for cleaning and validation. The Steam-Thru Connection II also provides the ability to steam-off the connection after fluid transfer to provide a sterile disconnection that isolates the production suite or its operators from hazardous process fluids.
"Colder Products Company is honored to accept this award for our Steam Thru Connections," said John Boehm, business unit manager, bioprocessing markets. "This is a testament to Colder's engineering team and the innovative connection solutions they are creating to drive the industry forward with closed system designs that enhance process flexibility while maintaining product sterility."
Recent innovative single-use product introductions from Colder Products Company include the AseptiQuik® S and AseptiQuik X, which expand the range of sterile connections to include 1/8-inch to 1-inch flow configurations, and MPC/MPX back-to-back body adapters for increased flexibility in connecting various tubing size throughout the bioprocess.
The 2012 BioProcess International Awards were determined through a judging process by peers and industry experts. BioProcess International (BPI) is a business-to-business publication focused on the development and manufacture of biopharmaceuticals and therapeutics. This Technology of the Decade award is the first for Colder from the BPI Awards.
