This year ARTeSYN released the first standardized products distributed by Pall into the broad biopharmaceutical market.
Here a quick interview with the 2 product
managers behind the standardization project, Kati Kongi (ARTeSYN) & Christophe Pierlot (Pall).
“Standardizing our product portfolio further is crucial to be able to provide simple off-the-shelf solutions faster and with the best quality as the market needs are growing rapidly. To reach a larger-scale end-user base we have partnered with Pall who has a global outreach to the biopharmaceutical market.”
“Standardized technology has the benefit of being supported better which greatly facilitates its implementation. This can go from the availability of designs, instructions for use, technical data and in many cases the product being available off the shelf. “
How was the market response to it?
“Very positive, regardless of having a traditional, hybrid or flexible process architecture there is a clear need for manual and automated single-use fluid control products.
Key applications are anything with storage, mixing or cell culture bags as well as applications related to filtration, especially when doing in-situ filter integrity testing.”
“Market response has been very positive as next to the pinch valve (PV) and diaphragm replacement valve (DRV) we see increasing interest in other areas of our product portfolio as well. We are focused on expanding the selection of standard products during the present and the upcoming years. “
What are the upcoming standard product categories?
“Firstly, we are focusing on expanding the automation control options for the successful pneumatic PV range to allow for more variety of in-process control integration.
As we saw tremendous interest in our steam to valves we are eager to standardize our solution which enables aseptic transfer from stainless steel into pre-sterilized and ready-to-use disposable systems.
Next to tubing support, we are looking into standardizing a variety of multi-way valves with a single-use flow path for traditional, hybrid and flexible applications “
“For many of the upcoming technologies we will be able to integrate the single-use liner as part of our Allegro single-use manifolds.
Combining ARTeSYN standard technology with
Pall’s proprietary connection, filtration and storage technologies will offer a unique solution to biotech customers.”
