AdvantaPure(R) Publishes White Papers on Clean Room Fluid Transfer, Tubing Selection and Container Closures; Topics Address Issues for Pharma and Biopharma Manufacturers
New from tubing and Single-Use System manufacturer AdvantaPure are three white papers focusing on fluid transfer in pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical applications. The papers focus on incorporating Single-Use practices for clean room fluid transfer, tubing selection, and the importance of container closures. Developed by the company’s application engineers, the reports offer real world examples of critical fluid transfer applications.
The papers were developed to aid users of tubing and fluid transfer systems with their decision making processes. They utilize the knowledge and hands-on experience of AdvantaPure’s application engineers regarding tubing, Single-Use molded manifold assemblies and other components that are part of vaccine and drug production.
“The team members here have many years of practical experience with the products used in the biopharma and pharmaceutical manufacturing industries,” said Michael Allard, Director of Sales. “The white papers allow us to put some of that knowledge in writing, making it readily available.”
The report titled “Applying Single-Use Efficiencies to Room-to-Room Fluid Transfer” is AdvantaPure’s newest and notes the risks of current clean-room-to-clean-room liquid transfer practices. Written by Tony Butler, the company’s Single-Use Applications Manager, it explains traditional operations using hard piping and movable totes and the difficulties that can occur with them. The report then notes how Single-Use practices and components can be incorporated for improvement. It also gives a real-world example of a system in use today that addresses the problems with traditional procedures.
A second report examines tubing materials commonly used for biopharma and pharmaceutical processing. It offers ten tips on what design engineers and purchasers should look for and investigate during the tubing selection process, such as tubing ingredients, extractables and peristaltic pump use. AdvantaPure’s third paper focuses on the challenges of container closures and their critical role in liquid transfer processes. Considerations such as industry standards that must be met, the ability to withstand a variety of sterilization methods, and materials of construction are noted.
A fourth report comparing tube sets made from barbed fittings with assemblies manufactured using molded connections is nearing completion.
