New Device Speeds, Simplifies Sterility Testing
First in the next generation of Steritest testing tools, Millipore's new Steritest EZ device provides fast and consistent sterility testing of large volume parenterals and synthetic drugs without antimicrobial activity. The device’s ergonomically designed needle adapters fit the majority of test containers to maintain a closed concept system, which reduces the risk of adventitious contamination. Pre-installed clamps simplify handling and save time by providing quality control analysts with an easy closing and re-opening mechanism. The longer 850 mm tubing length provides easier set-up and ample room to perform the manipulations involved in sterility testing. In addition, the canister inlet design minimizes foaming for improved reliability and faster filtration.Each canister is engraved with catalogue and lot number, expiration date and serial numbers for improved traceability. New products in this line will be announced in the near future for other applications.
