CPC (Colder Products Company), part of Dover and maker of genderless AseptiQuik sterile connectors, introduces a 1-1/2" sanitary termination to deliver higher flow rates for high-volume, large-flow transfer lines in full-scale bioprocessing and biopharmaceutical operations.
"The AseptiQuik G 1-1/2" Sanitary connector was developed specifically to handle the higher flow rates and larger inner diameter tubing used in large-scale production environments," said John Boehm, CPC Business Director, Bioprocessing.
"Customers also appreciate that the AseptiQuik G is compatible with other suppliers' bioprocessing components and systems. Our goal is to work seamlessly within the single-use systems customers build to suit their specific needs."
The AseptiQuik G 1-1/2" Sanitary option expands CPC's broad range of terminations, which now includes six termination sizes from 1/8" to 1" hose barbs, with 3/4" and 1-1/2" sanitary options. The new AseptiQuik connector also integrates with different OEM suppliers' components requiring a 1-1/2" sanitary fitting including filters, single-use bioreactors, mixing and storage tanks, chromatography skids, transfer lines and more.
Genderless connectors simplify use, operator training and inventory management and avoid the need for adapters, which can leak or pose a contamination risk. A robust design provides reliable performance without the need for clamps, fixtures or tube welders.
The AseptiQuik G Series' integrated pull tabs act as protective covers, reducing complexity and ensuring simultaneous removal of both membranes. The connectors' easy "Flip-Click-Pull" assembly process and audible "click" confirming connection also help reduce operator error.
For current AseptiQuik users, AseptiQuik G connector validation, specification and implementation are streamlined—the new connector uses the same connection process and material as other AseptiQuik products. Also, the AseptiQuik G Series is readily available through a global network of distributors, integrators and OEM partners, expanding supply chain flexibility.
