Using Validated Technology To Increase Assurance Of Integrity And Sterility Of Single-Use Assemblies Immediately Before Use   Using Validated Technology To Increase Assurance Of Integrity And Sterility Of Single-Use Assemblies Immediately Before Use
Single-use technologies raise persistent concerns about integrity. Sterility of the bag must be maintained in order to avoid contamination resulting in the discarding of the batch, after significant cost and effort. Discover the HIT™ platform, a new highly-sensitive technology for detecting defects as small as 10 microns in single-use bags and their manifolds immediately before use, at the end user facility.
