Preventing Contamination During Sterile Powder Transfer

11 April 2017
By ChargePoint

The ChargePoint AseptiSafe Bio valve traditionally uses hydrogen peroxide (H202) gas to bio-decontaminate the two mating surfaces of the valve before the transfer of products. We recently conducted testing, in conjunction with ChlorDisys, to qualify Chlorine Dioxide (CD) gas as an alternative to H202 for decontamination in our AseptiSafe Bio valve.

The results of the test were reported the feasibility of CD gas to sterilize the mating surfaces to the required sterility assurance level and the length of the cycles to achieve this level. The study determined the compatibility of materials in contact with the CD gas, and also examined how pressure may or may not cause leaks in the system.

Read the results in the latest issue of PharmTech magazine, or view them online here.
