ATMI has unveiled an extension to its Integrity product line for the biopharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, with the introduction of a range of single-use bioprocess vessels (BPVs).
The Integrity BPVs were launched at the IBC Single-Use Applications for Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing event.
The vessels are available from ATMI Lifesciences in 2D and 3D 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.
They have been developed to meet the demand for cost-effective, scalable single-use storage containers that are compatible with ATMI's 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 variety of applications, the 2D and 3D BPVs range in size up to 3,000 litres and are configurable to a range of end-user processes.
Integrity TK8, ATMI's universal bioprocess polymer film, is used across the Integrity line of single-use storage and transfer vessels, mixing vessels and bioreactor vessels.
This standardisation allows customers to implement TK8-based products throughout their facility and to scale up as production demand dictates.
The TK8 film used in production of the vessels is compatible with bioprocess materials and is said to significantly reduce risk to product integrity.
Key attributes of this multi-layer gas-barrier polymer laminate include cleanroom extrusion using only medical-grade polymers, USP Class VI certification and 100 per cent Animal Derived Component Free (ADCF) materials.
This makes ATMI BPVs suitable for any storage application, from buffers and media to intermediate bulk hold and final product fill.
The Integrity Bioprocess Vessels represent the latest innovation in the Integrity line of single-use products developed by ATMI.
They are designed to provide users with ways to economically and safely store, mix, cultivate and transfer biopharmaceutical and other life-science ingredients.
Other products in the Integrity product line include: Wandmixer, Levmixer, Magnetic Mixer, Jetmixer, Padmixer and the recently released Padreactor.
