Getinge’s next-generation of steam sterilisers, developed specifically for biomedical research and pharmaceutical production, was introduced at Achema 2018
Getinge, a global provider of innovative medical technology, has launched its flagship GSS Steam Steriliser series, specifically designed for the life science industry at Achema 2018. The new GSS Steam Steriliser is available in two different versions – GSS R for biomedical research and GSS P for pharmaceutical production.
“We designed our new GSS Steam Steriliser series from the ground up to meet the specific needs of organisations involved in biomedical research and pharmaceutical and biotech drug discovery and development,” said Jens Knobe, Vice President of Business Development, Life Science, Getinge.
“This new generation of steam sterilisers is fully aligned with the needs of organisations conducting biomedical research and producing pharmaceuticals. They offer improved lead time and documentation, and are customisable, reliable, fast and precise – features and attributes that are of critical importance to companies and laboratories working in the life science industry.”
The new GSS Steam Sterilisers are available in a range of sizes and offer a set of options to adapt to customers’ individual needs. They are designed to reduce lead times and are Good Automated Manufacturing Practices (GAMP)-5 compliant.
“We developed the GSS P and GSS R Steam Sterilisers to be easily integrated into the customer’s production facility and with ease of qualification as their cornerstone,” said Joakim Larsson, Product Line Manager, Life Science Sterilisers, Getinge.
“Not only do we provide our customers with the steam steriliser, we also provide a top-of-the-line documentation package, project management, control systems with connectivity to customers’ IT systems, data integrity and the support structure.”
The GSS R Steam Steriliser for biomedical research was designed to help laboratories and biomedical research facilities achieve reliable containment and scientific data integrity and secure biosafety levels. It has a stainless steel design and can be put into operation quickly because of its advanced process management system and documentation, which ensures easy validation and compliance with local regulations. It offers standard chamber sizes ranging from 10 to 400 cubic feet and three control systems. To prevent cross-contamination the GSS R can be equipped with traditional air differential barriers or bioseal requirements that guarantee an airtight seal capable of preventing the passage of airborne microorganisms.
The GSS P Steam Steriliser for pharmaceutical production is designed to offer reliable contamination prevention, streamlining the process and helping customers achieve high performance and maximum productivity. It can be put into operation quickly because of its Quality system, which ensures ease of validation, compliance with GAMP-5 as well as global and local regulations. It offers standard chamber sizes ranging from 10 to 400 cubic feet, three control systems, and a set of options. The range of options includes double or single doors, door interlock to prevent cross-contamination, jacket cooling for water recirculation, and processes for liquids in open or closed containers.
