New Dimensions in Flexel® for Magnetic Mixers
Sartorius Stedim Biotech presents 1,500 L and 2,000 L standard single-use mixing systems for large volumes
This single-use magnetic mixing system is designed for aseptic mixing in process development and manufacturing applications. It is ideal for biopharmaceutical processes that require powerful mixing torque, such as buffer preparation, media preparation, product resuspension and homogenization applications.
Flexel® for Magnetic Mixers is a non-invasive, mixing unit that uses extensively qualified Sartorius Stedim Biotech Flexel® 3D bag technology, the proven stainless steel Palletank® container and ATMI patented mixing technology. A stainless steel cross mounted on a pulley system enables the single-use bag to be unfolded for easy filling and optimal drainage. Mixing is based on a bottom-mounted magnetically-driven impeller capable of providing high-torque mixing in large liquid volumes. Powder transfer is facilitated by the 4-inch powder addition port that provides for direct connection of a 15 L or a 30 L powder transfer bag suspended from a powder bag holder. The interchangeable magnetic mixer drive unit is mobile, cart-mounted and designed to interface with any of the Palletanks®.
