Single-Use Mixers Improve Ergonomics

New HyPerforma Single-Use Mixers from Thermo Scientific address user requirements.


The Thermo Scientific HyPerforma Single-Use Mixers (SUM) combine the benefits of its widely used SUMs with advancements that address the requirements of single-use bioprocessors from scale-up to cGMP manufacturing. New features include optimized tubing management, advanced clean-in-place sterilization, rapid set-up and turn-around times, and streamlined handling of hazardous materials.

“The need to maximize efficiency is an ongoing requirement and we redesigned our HyPerforma SUM with many of the same ergonomic benefits introduced last year in our HyPerforma single-user bioreactor, including ergonomic enhancements such as handles for enhanced system mobility,” said Jacob McNeil, senior product manager for single-use systems at Thermo Fisher Scientific.

The new HyPerforma range now provides six capacity options (50, 100, 200, 500, 1000 and 2000 L) to address customer demand for an even smaller footprint, simplified set-up and cleaning, and easy loading of bioprocess containers. Sight windows and level indicators were incorporated so end-users can better assess fill levels. Additional features include easy-to-manage tubing systems, adjustable height Powdertainer hangers, rapid heat-up and cool-down times, and cable-management trees.
