SOUTHAMPTON, Pa.—AdvantaPure's AdvantaPass, a clean room wall pass-through system designed to transfer fluids between clean rooms during pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical production, has been awarded a patent by the U.S. Government.
The firm said AdvantaPass combines single-use tubing, connectors and seals with permanent wall-mounted stainless steel components to eliminate cleaning validations associated with clean room protocols.
AdvantaPure said its product saves time and expense over the sterilization and validation requirements of traditional hard piping transfer systems. Its single-use tubing and components are available in platinum-cured silicone or AdvantaFlex biopharmaceutical grade thermoplastic elastomer.
AdvantaPure is a division of NewAge industries, which is ISO 9001:2008 certified and specializes in high purity tubing, hose, single-use systems, manifolds and other molded components for the pharmaceutical, biomedical, food, beverage and cosmetic industries.
