Disposable Processing Joining Thermoplastics Easily
Two new products from Sartorius, the BioWelder and BioSealer, simplify the assembly and disassembly of thermoplastic tubing systems in biopharmaceutical manufacturing, especially for disposable systems.
They form part of Sartorius’s Gammasart BioSystems line of disposable sterile fluid handling products. Both devices incorporate proven technology from Swiss company Wave Biotech, which recently formed a strategic alliance with Sartorius. They handle tubing with diameters in the range 1/4–3/4“ OD made from various types of thermoplastic, creating thermal welds and seals with a high level of stability and aseptic performance. BioWelder and BioSealer feature fully automated operation and short cycle times, allowing users of disposable bag assemblies to manage the interfaces between process steps conveniently and without compromising process sterility.
