Catalog excerpts

Sterisart® NF – gamma Septum 16476 System with Short Dual-Needle Metal Spike Specifications Pore size of the 0.45 µm, tested with Serratia marcescens Sartochem® membrane filter Sterility Testing Filter area 15.7 cm2 in each Sterisart® container Flow rate (for water) Pore size of 0.2 µm PTFE, validated the air filters to HIMA for the acc. retention of B. diminuta. Sample container 120 ml capacity (graduation marks at 50, 75 and 100 ml) Max. operating pressure International pharmacopeias require the complete sterility of pharmaceutical products that are injected into the bloodstream or that otherwise enter the body below the skin surface. As a manufacturer of such products, you are required to supply proof of the sterility of the final product batch. Unlike plastic needles, metal needles do not snap off when tilted under pressure. This benefit together with the large protective plate on the spike not only makes it easy to pierce stoppers. The plate construction also helps prevent injury to fingers by ruling out breakage or slippage. The preferred method for sterility testing is the membrane filter method: any microorganisms present are concentrated on the membrane filter surfaces in the sample containers, then nutrient media are added to these containers and the containers are incubated under the conditions specified. The new Sterisart systems with partitioned (i.e. septated) connector allow sterile sampling during incubation and guarantee a sterile barrier between the interior and exterior of the container during further incubation. The Sterisart® NF system with order number 16476 has been specifically designed for sterility testing of closed, unvented sample containers. The only 2.4 cm long doublemetal needle reduces the dead volume, which necessarily remains in the sample container during sample taking, considerably. The resulting sample is pumped in equal volumes into the two Sterisart® containers and filtered. Then the culture media described by the pharmacopeias are pumped into these containers, and the containers are subsequently incubated for two weeks, then evaluated. The Sterisart® NF 16476 type is available as special isolator version with the model suffix “gamma septum,“ which is indicated by the last letters of the order number: GSD. Sterisart® NF systems can also be used with other manufacturers’ pumps which have been specially designed for disposable closed sterility testing systems. This requires one of two adapters to ensure the correct seating of Sartorius NF units in the pumps of other manufacturers – adapter order number 16412V (for older pumps) or 1ZE---0014 (for the latest pump versions). However, you will not need these adapters if you are using Sterisart® Universal pumps 16419 and 16420. Recently designed by Sartorius Stedim Biotech, these versatile and flexible pumps offer considerable benefits, and are ideal for use in clean rooms and clean benches as well as in isolators when installed in the working surface.
