Large Volume Sterile Fluid Transfer Made Simple with the Kleenpak™ II Sterile Connector

As single-use technologies become more widely used in upstream, downstream and formulation and filling processes, biopharmaceutical manufacturers are continually looking for innovative and practical solutions to make secure, permanent sterile connections of large single-use systems (≥100 L) in uncontrolled environments.

Recognizing the clear need for a connector device for biomanufacturing commercial applications that involve the sterile transfer of large fluid volumes, Pall Life Sciences designed and developed the Kleenpak II sterile connector. This webinar will cover the design and operation of the Kleenpak II sterile connector and focus on the validation of this technology. Application data will also be presented from our applications R&D group along with some practical examples of how the Kleenpak II sterile connector can be successfully integrated into a variety of single-use systems across both upstream and downstream applications.

Participants will learn:

  • The design philosophy behind Kleenpak II sterile connector and its compliance with the various compendial standards.
  • How the Kleenpak II sterile connector has been rigorously tested in various different biopharmaceutical applications and processes.
  • How you can use Kleenpak II sterile connectors along with other Pall technologies to truly realize a completely disposable manufacturing facility for commercial scale operation.
