New Single-Use Bioprocess Vessels Are Suited For Clean Or Sterile Liquids Storage
Atmi Inc. released an extension to its Integrity product line for the biopharmaceutical and biotechnology industries with the introduction of a new range of single-use bioprocess vessels (BPVs). The new vessels are available from Atmi LifeSciences in both 2-D and 3-D bag formats, and are manufactured using the company's Integrity TK8 polymer film. The BPVs have been designed for use in the storage and transfer of clean or sterile liquids that are critical to biotechnology processes.
Integrity BPVs have been developed to meet the demand for cost-effective, scalable single-use storage containers that are compatible with Atmi's extensive single-use mixing and bioreactor technologies. The single-use vessels can help companies reduce risk while driving down costs in comparison with traditional stainless-steel equipment. Designed for deployment across a wide variety of applications, the 2-D and 3-D BPVs range in size up to 3,000 liters and are configurable to a broad range of end-user processes.
Integrity TK8, Atmi's universal bioprocess polymer film, is used across the entire Integrity line of single-use storage and transfer vessels, mixing vessels and bioreactor vessels. This standardization allows customers to implement TK8-based products throughout their facility with greatly reduced validation burden and to scale up seamlessly as production demand dictates.
The TK8 film used in production of the vessels is compatible with bioprocess materials and can reduce risk to product integrity.
Key attributes of this multilayer gas-barrier polymer laminate include clean-room extrusion using only medical grade polymers, USP Class VI certification and 100% Animal Derived Component Free materials. Atmi BPVs are suitable for any storage application, from buffers and media to intermediate bulk hold and final product fill.
