AdvantaPure(R) Introduces BioClosure(R) System Assemblies That Reduce Assembly Time, Protect Product Integrity and Decrease Contamination Risks

Single-Use components supplier AdvantaPure announces the availability of BioClosure System Assemblies. The ready-to-use, closed container systems are designed to save customers time and expense in their bioprocess applications by eliminating cleaning validations, reducing the need for multiple inventoried parts, and assembling onsite. The Single-Use assemblies also help decrease contamination risks. Applications include aseptic sampling, cell growth, filling, process R&D and cold storage.

Southampton, PA, March 10, 2016 --( AdvantaPure now offers its BioClosure container closures, made from AdvantaFlex(R) biopharmaceutical grade TPE, as standard, ready-to-use, closed systems. Called BioClosure System Assemblies, they feature a robust design with elastomeric seals against the containers and unobstructed fluid paths. Applications include aseptic sampling, cell growth, filling, process R&D and cold storage.

“Customers need high quality, Single-Use systems that protect their products and reduce the risk of contamination,” said Lawrence Morano, Global Sales Manager. “BioClosure System Assemblies are the ideal choice for many bioprocess applications and can be easily used with sterile tubing welders and sealers.”

BioClosure System Assemblies include Single-Use AdvantaFlex fluid transfer tubing and molded container closures, plus filters and caps for media bottles, Erlenmeyer flasks and carboys.
