Peristaltic Filling Technology Simplifies Validation

July 27, 2010
The company combines its high precision Flexicon peristaltic filling technology with DAFPA™, a ready-to-use fully Disposable Aseptic Fluid Path. The peristaltic single-use fluidpath is ideal for clinical scale aseptic filling. Product contact is restricted to a gamma-irradiated single-use fluid path, eliminating the possibility of contamination from direct contact with equipment or moving parts. Cleaning validation, product changeover, and setup is fast and easy, increasing filling machine versatility for multiple filling campaigns. Accommodates a wide range of fill volumes and vial sizes simply by selecting an appropriate tube diameter. Media bags are available in 2.0, 5.0 and 10-liter volume sizes. Customization of assemblies is available to suit specific filling needs.
