Millipore Corp. recently announced the availability of the NovaSeal crimping solution for use with single-use disposable assemblies. Todays 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 used 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 the Mobius disposable assembly. The NovaSeal solution is a simple 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.
A new battery powered version for ¼ inch to ¾ inch OD tubing was recently launched at Interphex 2007.
