The Bio-Rad media transfer device is a self-contained, movable unit designed to transfer chromatography media between a tank and column and to deliver cleaning solutions to Bio-Rad InPlace columns for sanitization. The device exploits the full potential of Bio-Rad InPlace column features. Column preparation, unpacking, and cleaning operations are simplified by the device and can be performed in a contained system to preclude contamination.
With the Bio-Rad media transfer device, you can:
- Flush slurry valves and manifolds
- Transfer fluid or media from the tank to the column or from the column to the tank
- Clean the column using the integrated cleaning-in-place (CIP) system of the Bio-Rad InPlace column
- Clean the piping of the device using a CIP protocol
Process piping is made from 316L stainless steel, Ra ≤0.8 mm, with tri-clamp sanitary fittings. Separate pumps are used for the media and the cleaning solutions, to ensure that no media will be injected in the CIP spraying system, and that CIP solutions will not contaminate the process. The Bio-Rad media transfer device is pneumatically controlled for safe, easy, and effective operation and has a compact design to minimize space requirements and the internal volume of the piping.
