BioSealer® TC is a pharma tube disconnection tool developed by Sartorius. It is a machine for disconnecting tubes between two or more process devices. These are typically used in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry. Under certain circumstances, these devices require disconnection. The use of a machine, such as a tube disconnector, is therefore unavoidable.

Biosealer: Why Choose the Pharma Tube Disconnection Tool?

The BioSealer® TC is a disconnect switch designed by Sartorius. It is a tube disconnection tool used by the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. During certain processes, the devices have to be separated, and a sterile disconnector is required to secure the fluids flowing through the thermoplastic tubes.

The BioSealer® TC Disconnector is the best solution to ensure safe disconnection of TPE tubes. The device incorporates heat sealing technology that eliminates all forms of elements present on the tubing during disconnection.

The Specifics of the BioSealer® TC Disconnector

This disconnecting machine is fully automated. Many TPE tubes of different brands can be disconnected from the BioSealer® TC (Pharmed® BPT, AdvantaFlex®, SaniPure ™ BDF ™ and C-Flex® 374). These TPE tubes are often used in biopharmaceutical manufacturing processes on disposable assemblies.

The product in the tube can be protected from contamination by the use of this disconnector. The device can also be used in a non-sterile environment. Its robustness allows reliable and safe sterile disconnection, with more stable welds, a new level of flexibility and more heat-sealing possibilities. Indeed, the device can disconnect thermoplastic tubes with outside diameters ranging from ¼ “to 1”, whether empty or filled.

How Do I Use the BioSealer® TC Disconnector?

Sartorius has developed an easy-to-use tube disconnector. Using the touch screen, the material and size of the tubing to be disconnected can be selected by the operator. Setting and closing the clamping jaws at the right time are also instructions that the operator can see and confirm on the display.

The operator then has to insert the thermoplastic tubing to be disconnected between the jaws. The sealing process is started by a simple click on the screen and the operator  then follows the instructions.

At the end of the sealing cycle, the lid of the machine will automatically open again. The cycle can take from 1 to 4 minutes, depending on the quality and size of the TPE tube. After visual inspection, the operator can cut the tube.

The BioSealer® TC is also a transportable pharmaceutical tube disconnection tool. The operator can hang it up or place it on a table for use. This portability of the device allows the operator to perform a sterile disconnection near the treatment area.
