Opta® SFT Sterile connector

The Opta® SFT range of Sterile Connectors allows fast and reliable sterile connection and sterile fluid transfer between two separate, pre-sterilized process components in biopharmaceutical manufacturing operations.

Item no.:  641FS012M---D

Availability:  On Request

The Opta® SFT range of Sterile Connectors allows fast and reliable sterile connection and sterile fluid transfer between two separate, pre-sterilized process components in biopharmaceutical manufacturing operations.

  • Male and female connector couplings sealed with sterilizing grade PES membrane: Allows for sterile fluid transfer in non classified & classified environments
  • Male and female connector couplings: Allows for “error proofing” of designs to prevent mistaken connections
  • Sterilizable by gamma irradiation & autoclave: Flexible implementation of hybrid single-use and multiple use technologies
  • This connector has been qualified applying the most stringent and innovative test regimes including sterility assurance proven by immersion of a connector prior to connection (30 min, static) as well as connected Opta® (10min under recirculation) connectors in 10E6 CFU/mL of B. Diminuta.
  • 100 % of connectors integrity tested: highest security

The OPTA® SFT-I connectors can be integrated into Sartorius Stedim Biotech assemblies and are also available as individual divice for end-user assembly with silicone tubing. The Opta® SFT- D is available as individual device for end-user assembly with TPE tubing and autoclave sterilization.

  • 3-step operation: Fast, robust and repeatable operation
  • All hose barb connections intensively qualified: Safe and robust tubing connections
  • Fully integrated supply chain for Opta® SFT-I incorporating single-use assemblies from Sartorius Stedim Biotech: Streamlined supply chain, highest security of supply
