At SP, we understand the pain points when it comes to always keeping your vials free from contamination. Because patient safety is essential to you, and that means it’s essential to us too. Depyrogenation can be filled with recontamination risks without access to the right equipment. Forget traditional batch ovens where vials are manually transported from the oven to the filling line, increasing the risk of contamination. Our trusted deypyrogenation solutions take you from vial washer, via a sanitary conveyor to depyrogenation tunnel, right through to cleanroom in fewer than 30 minutes – and without operator intervention - eliminating all known microbes and pyrogens, such as lipopolysaccharide (LPS).
Our depyrogenation tunnels are designed and manufactured to the highest quality and are easily incorporated into your fill-finish line. If space is at a premium, our smallest tunnel is just five feet in length, offering you the ideal solution for your laboratory and small batch applications. To ensure consistent thermic cycles during the depyrogenation process, our sterilizing chambers are always in overpressure relative to the preheating and cooling chambers. This prevents cold air ingress and maintains a consistent temperature, duration and lethality, regardless of cleanroom pressure fluctuations. In addition, you can monitor and record particle counts in the infeed zone, hot zone and cool zone continuously during the batch run.
All our depyrogenation tunnels operate at a standard temperature of 320°C, meaning pyrogens are reduced to undetectable levels in less than one minute!
