Compact pumps for sterility testing

18th September 2014


Merck Millipore, the Life Science division of Merck, has launched Steritest Symbio pumps for easier, safer and more reliable sterility testing of pharmaceutical products in laminar flow hoods, isolators and clean rooms. The pumps were developed to address stringent pharmaceutical testing requirements. 

The compact housing design of the pumps allows easier access in laminar flow hoods and enables compatibility with vertical and horizontal air flows. The new design also frees working space and increases loading capacity in isolators, improving workflows and efficiency.

The ergonomic pump head ensures quick introduction of filtration units and removes the risk of pinched gloves. Its automatic closure provides repeatable tubing placement, and thus reliable splitting of the liquid sample. The buttons are designed for operation with isolator gloves. In addition, the pump is easy to clean and resistant to gas decontamination in isolators.

Steritest Symbio pumps feature a precise timer function, enabling small volumes to be sampled with accuracy. Two canister pressure detection modes are programmed to alert the operator, reducing the risk of test interruption and maximizing efficiency.

Sterility testing can be time-consuming and impacted by variability in user technique,” notes Olivier Mazille, product manager Sterility Testing. “By incorporating a compact, easy-to-use design and step-by-step onscreen guidance, Steritest Symbio pumps increase reliability, improve workflows and maximise convenience for operators.”
