Single-use systems

A range of end-ported biocontainers meet the growing demand for single-use systems that reduce cleaning requirements and downtime. Available in 50-, 250-, and 500-mL sizes as well as 1-, 2-, 5-, 10-, and 20-L sizes, the polyethylene-based containers offer high gas and water-vapor barrier properties. Custom designs also are available. Biocontainers may be ordered with silicone or thermoplastic elastomer tubing with various connections, and can be specified with or without filter capsules. Certified to be free of animal components, the containers are packaged in an ISO Class 7 cleanroom (TepoFlex biocontainers, Meissner Filtration Products).

Quality-control devices

A direct connection between machine and machine builder provides remote access to inspection equipment even if the system is located behind a firewall. The secure link enables remote diagnostics to be conducted and supplies data, images, and other information. If permission is granted, original equipment company engineers can access the machine's user interface, data, images, and logs. Setup is simple and saves the days of engineering and administrative time usually needed to provide access to a machine.

The connection also archives logs and setup parameters securely and makes it possible to transmit logs and batch records to any computer with a network connection. The connection service can be purchased alone or as part of a service package that includes replacement parts and an annual on-site machine audit by a field engineer (Symetix Secure Connection service for VeriSym and OptyxSG inspection systems, Symetix).
