A welding system enables the sterile connection of liquid-filled thermoplastic tubing with outer diameters measuring up to 1 inch. The BioWelder Total Containment
unit from Sartorius Stedim Biotech
is suited for use on disposable bags or bag assemblies in all biopharmaceutical manufacturing processes. The fully automated sterile welding process can be performed in nonclassified or classified environments while maintaining product sterility.
The thermal weld produced by BioWelder TC is stable, guaranteeing an ultrasafe connection, and has passed a series of stringent and innovative test regimens, according to the manufacturer. Biological, physical and extractables tests were combined to obtain data representing a variety of process conditions, including critical applications.
Headquartered in Aubagne, France, Sartorius Stedim Biotech provides a range of equipment and services for the development, quality assurance and production processes of the biopharmaceutical industry.
