CPC (Colder Products Company), is unveiling genderless single-use AseptiQuik Tee and Cross manifold adapters at INTERPHEX 2015. The new manifold adapters provide enhanced flexibility for biopharmaceutical manufacturers by enabling onsite connection of standard sub- assemblies to create a wide array of customized single-use systems.
“The new AseptiQuik Tee and Cross manifold adapters support and simplify modular system design, sub-assembly standardization and lead time reduction associated with customized assemblies,” said John Boehm, business unit manager, bioprocessing markets.
“Based upon our innovative genderless AseptiQuik sterile connectors, the Tee and Cross are the outcome of CPC’s collaboration with drug manufacturers to facilitate the creation of flexible closed systems while also achieving lean manufacturing objectives including higher demand for a reduced number of SKUs.”
Offered in gamma and high-temperature (HT) versions, AseptiQuik Tee and Cross manifold adapters mate with genderless AseptiQuik G series connectors. The easy-to-use genderless design of AseptiQuik G connectors allows universal mating between any G series connector without the need for clamps or fixtures, resulting in simplified systems integration and increased process flexibility for biopharmaceutical manufacturers. AseptiQuik G provides a full range of interchangeable flow solutions including 1/4-in. hose barb, 3/8-in. hose barb, 1/2-in. hose barb, 3/4-in. hose barb and 3/4-in. sanitary. CPC’s bioprocessing connections are manufactured in an ISO Class 7 certified cleanroom and meet USP Class VI material standards.
Genderless AseptiQuik Tee and Cross manifold adapters are a part of CPC’s family of sterile connectors that include sterile connect and disconnect solutions. Available in a full range of 1/8- to 1-in. flow configurations, these connectors provide ease-of-use, robust construction and reliable performance for transferring valuable media for a wide range of applications including single-use bag and tubing assemblies, cell banking systems, bioreactors, mixers, sampling and formulation fill processing equipment.
