High Capacity Sampling
The luer-activated access valve on BENCHMARK™ is validated to maintain a microbial barrier after 140 connections with a male-luer device including syringes for sample collection.
Easy to Use
Simply swab the surface of the fitting with a sanitizing agent, connect a sterile syringe and collect your sample.
Clear residual liquid in tubing into a purge syringe before taking the next sample. Protein flushing studies demonstrate 100% clearance from access site after total flushing of 3mL.
Gamma-Irradiated and Ready-to-Use, simply weld-on to tubing from your process vessel.
BENCHMARK™ includes a one-way check valve immediatly downstream from the connection site. The valve prevents fluid or air from flowing into your vessel helping to preserve purity in your process vessel.
BENCHMARK™ preserves sterility on the vessel the sample is collected from. The sample is open to the environment once the collection container is disconnected from BENCHMARK™ and so not suitable for bioburden|sterility testing, endotoxin testing or retain samples.
Aside from validation to maintian microbial barrier properites after 140 engagments, BENCHMARK™ meets the following standards:
- USP Class VI
- USP 85
- USP <381>
- USP <661>
