Millipores steritest equinox pump optimizes sterility testing in laminar flow hoods
Millipore have announced the availability of its Steritest Equinox pump, a liquid transfer pump for sterility testing in laminar flow hoods. The software controlled peristaltic pump offers the safe, uniform transfer of drug samples from various packaging to testing devices. Optimized for use with Millipore's Steritest devices, the pump delivers consistent sterility testing, while reducing overall processing time.
The Steritest Equinox pump's intelligent system enables analysts to download custom procedures from a desktop onto the pump. In automated mode, the pump will prompt analysts through selected standard operating procedures (SOP), thereby supporting good manufacturing practices. The pump speed and related information are also displayed for improved repeatability and reliability.
A patented auto-close pump head simplifies operations, which facilitates loading and unloading of the device's tubing. A built-in timer enable s analysts to pre-set the time required for transferring the desired volume of products and buffers into the Steritest canisters. In addition, a patented pressure control system consistently monitors the pressure inside each canister ensuring that the system is running within acceptable limits at all times. Ergonomically designed, the easy-to-clean pump fits in horizontal and vertical Class A/Class 100 laminar flow hoods. Its unique profile prevents undesirable air turbulence eliminating the risk of false positives.
The Steritest Equinox Pump is compliant with Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive 89/336/EEC, and is Communauté Européene (CE) marked accordingly.
