The GEA kytero combines the high performance of larger GEA stainless-steel pharmaceutical centrifuges with the benefits offered by disposable components.

The GEA kytero single-use separator, intended for use in fermentation solutions and cell cultures, is equipped with GEA Westfalia Separator disk stack technology designed for maximum yield, high separation efficiency, and gentle product handling.

The GEA kytero combines the high performance of larger GEA stainless-steel pharmaceutical centrifuges with the benefits offered by disposable components that do not require cleaning. The technology relies on centrifugal separation, rather than filter-based harvesting, for increased clarification efficiency.

To prevent cross-contamination and hygienic cell harvesting, all elements that come into contact with the product, such as hoses and containers, are made of recyclable material and are replaced after use. The design of the aseptic connector system is intended to ease the process of exchanging single-use components. The mobile plug & produce unit also fits into any cleanroom.
