Crimping Tool Ensures Sterility of Fluid Transports

Millipore has announced the availability of its new NovaSeal crimping solution for use with single-use disposable assemblies. Today’s biopharmaceutical industry requires accurate, safe and easy to use single-use technologies that not only meet increasingly stringent regulatory requirements, but also improve speed to market. As part of the Mobius family of disposable bioprocessing technologies, the NovaSeal solution is ideal for sampling, transporting or transferring fluid, while ensuring sterility is maintained and the fluid is securely protected from the outside environment at all times.

The NovaSeal solution combines a patented crimping tool and tubing pinch pipes pre-mounted on the tubing of a Mobius disposable assembly. The NovaSeal solution is a simple and practical crimping approach that is easy to handle and use. The patented design of the manual crimping tool first crimps the metallic pinch pipe ensuring a proper seal, then cuts the tubing into two sterile fluid paths.
