CPC solution supports faster fluid handling for large-volume processes  

Roseville, Minn. – Biopharmaceutical manufacturers often face challenges finding single-use connection technologies that enable efficient filling and filtration processes for high-volume fluid transfers. To address these needs, CPC introduces the AseptiQuik® W Series, the industry’s largest genderless aseptic connectors. The new 1-1/2-inch flow path solution easily transfers hundreds of liters per minute, significantly reducing fluid transfer times across bioprocesses.  

“Biopharma manufacturers continue to press the boundaries of single-use technologies (SUTs) in nearly all of their production processes with, for example, larger SUT containers—beyond 2,000 liters—and higher efficiency filtration devices,” said Michael Francis, CPC product manager. “This new large-format connection technology handles flow rates to meet these challenging application requirements.”  

In addition to now offering the industry’s largest aseptic connector, CPC also pioneered biopharma’s smallest connector, the 1/8-inch MicroCNX® Series Connectors, which are the only alternative to tube welding for creating closed sterile connections at small volumes.  

“These latest solutions further expand CPC’s aseptic connector portfolio, which was already the broadest in the industry. We continue to innovate to meet the evolving needs of cell therapy, gene therapy and biopharma manufacturers across the globe,” Francis said.   

AseptiQuik W connector hose barb termination sizes include 1-inch, 1-1/4-inch, and 1-1/2-inch with a 1-1/2-inch sanitary flange option. Applications include large-volume (up to 5,000 liters) fluid transfer and filtration processes, including media, buffer and cell culture processes.
