EMD Millipore to Introduce New Single-Use Process Technologies at INTERPHEX


-New Single-Use Technologies Maximize Efficiency and Reduce Cost in Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing-

NEW YORK, NY; April 9, 2015 – International Pharmaceutical Expo (INTERPHEX), sponsored by Parenteral Drug Association (PDA), the premier industry event dedicated to showcasing pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical innovation, technology and knowledge today announced EMD Millipore, the Life Sciences division of Merck KGaA and a leader in research, development, and production of biotech and pharmaceutical drug therapies, will introduce new single-use technologies at INTERPHEX 2015 taking place April 21-23 at the Javits Center in New York.

“EMD Millipore has a long tradition of driving advancement and offering the highest quality and most innovative products to their customers,” said Ed Several, Senior Vice President and General Manager. “We are proud they have selected INTERPHEX as the event to showcase their scientific advancement.”

Novaseptum® Single-Use Holders
NovaSeptum® single-useNovaSeptum® single-use holders are a new component of EMD Millipore’s NovaSeptum® fully disposable sampling systems, which help prevent contamination when sampling fluids from aseptic and sterile processes. The new single-use holders are compatible with NovaSeptum® containers, helping reduce validation requirements, and can be filled with any type of container using a 2mm trigger.  Ready-to-use, flexible and fully validated, the single-use holders are ideal for manufacturers dealing with recombinant proteins, vaccines and mAbs who need to autoclave before starting their processes.

PureFlex™PureFlex™ Plus Single-Use Process Container Film
EMD Millipore is introducing PureFlex™ Plus film, a robust, durable film used in the construction of Mobius® single-use process containers for biopharmaceutical manufacturing. The film’s rugged outer layer offers strong resistance to leak formation, making it ideal for the demanding applications often encountered in large volume operations.

The PureFlex™ Plus film can be used throughout the entire manufacturing process. It builds upon EMD Millipore’s established PureFlex™ film technology by adding a new, more robust linear low density polyethlene (LLDPE) outer layer to reduce susceptibility to leaks through abrasion, puncture, stretching and tearing.

Steritest™Steritest™ Symbio Pumps
Steritest™ Symbio Pumps are designed for easier, safer and more reliable sterility testing of pharmaceutical products in laminar flow hoods, isolators and clean rooms. The Steritest™ Symbio Pumps were developed to address stringent pharmaceutical testing requirements. With the pump’s low height and ergonomic design, the loading with Steritest™ EZ filtration units is extremely easy. The automatic closure eliminates the risk of glove pinching and ensures reliable splitting of the liquid sample.
