Getinge, a global provider of innovative medical technology, announced the worldwide launch of its flagship GSS Steam Sterilizer series, which is specifically designed for use by companies in the life science industry.
The new GSS Steam Sterilizer for life sciences is available in two different versions – GSS R for biomedical research and GSS P for pharmaceutical production. The new GSS Steam Sterilizers are designed to reduce lead times and are Good Automated Manufacturing Practices (GAMP)-5 compliant.
The GSS R Steam Sterilizer 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 Sterilizer 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.
