Aseptic Disconnections

Adaptable, Reliable Solutions for Disconnection

As biomanufacturing increasingly adopts single-use solutions, reliable disconnections are critical for maintaining closed systems. Process integrity and operator safety depends on the technology. Plans to aseptically disconnect these systems must be part of the overall process plan to ensure proper containment. 

Simplicity for Intuitive Operation

User-friendly design based on years of customer feedback and experience.

Flexibility for Complete Control

Varied disconnection options to meet customers’ containment, cost and critical process needs.

Agility for Speed to Market

Scalable thermal and mechanical disconnection technologies ease adoption of single-use technologies from R&D to commercial processes.

Disconnect With Confidence

Sartorius offers a complete portfolio of disconnection technologies for single-use systems and unit operations. By matching process needs with disconnection technology capabilities, biomanufacturers can streamline and protect valuable process fluids.

Biosealer® TC For Robust and Consistent Sealing

The Biosealer® TC is an automated sealer for aseptic disconnection of thermoplastic tubing. This innovative technology allows sterile disconnection of dry or liquid-filled TPE tubing from 1/4" to 1" outer diameter. The Biosealer® TC seals TPE tubes by thermally bonding the tubing, ensuring a high level of stability for sterile disconnection.
