ChargePoint Technology launches improved ChargeBag

Published: 7-Oct-2011

Single-use item reduces time, expense and downtime

The contained transfer of APIs from process to process now easier than ever with the new ChargeBag. Key specification changes for enhanced product flow, extended shelf life and global compliance ensures the new product offers improved performance and quality.

Designed as a single use item, the ChargeBag can be disposed of after use, which eliminates the time, expense, validation and ultimately process downtime often associated with cleaning rigid containers.

Each ChargeBag is packed within a sealed sleeve and gamma irradiated to meet sterile processing requirements. The robust construction and monolayer 250µm film and single-piece welded ferrule ensure reliability at all times, while a permanent antistat in the film assists poorly flowing materials to maximise the recovery of product from each transfer.

The new ChargeBag has been developed with ILC Dover, world leaders in flexible containment with a history of integrity and experience within the pharmaceutical industry. The bag is manufactured from the patented ArmorFlex brand of material, which meets global industry statutory requirements.

“We are very pleased to be working with ILC Dover on this new product,” said Ben Wylie, marketing manager. “This partnership has allowed us to create a market leading ChargeBag product that we believe our customers will experience the difference with.”
