Single-use technology used with sensors to monitor and control biopharma production at various stages of production.
How the implementation of closed systems using single-use technology has helped to deliver life-saving therapies efficiently and economically.

As demand increases for higher volume bioproduction, CPC answers the call with a large format high-flow connectors.
High-performance polymers are the future of quick disconnects (QDs) in liquid cooling systems. Advanced polymer QDs are lightweight, typically less expensive than their metal counterparts, impervious to corrosion—and tough and durable. Key performance characteristics of these engineered polymers rival metals.

Fast, efficient charging is key to the large-scale adoption of electric vehicles (EVs). The higher power (kW) used to support quicker charging generates more heat. Liquid cooling is used in EV charging stations, vehicle cells/battery packs, and charging cables.
  1. The logistics of decoupling drug substance manufacturing from final drug product formulation is now possible using integrated single-use freeze-thaw assemblies which incorporate reliable components.

Appropriating Biophorum Operations Group (BPOG) testing on single-use connectors to mitigate the risks of extractables and leachables (E&L), as demonstrated in this article, is crucial to delivering safe and effective drugs.
Increasing speed to market, eliminating redundant work and lowering your costs are just a few of the benefits of coordinating your standards across global sites. Our white paper explains more.

QDs built from high-performance thermoplastics now offer performance that rivals, and in some cases, surpasses their metal counterparts.
High performance computing manufacturers are increasingly deploying liquid cooling in their systems. The engineers responsible for thermal management, therefore, are drilling down into the components that facilitate optimal cooling. Proper specifications of quick disconnects ensure ease of use and leak-free connections.

Industry experts expect the single-use technologies (SUTs) used in biopharmaceutical clinical trials and commercial production to play a large role in the future development and production of cell and gene therapies.
A survey of bioprocessing industry professionals asked which method they prefer for their connection needs: sealable and weldable tubing or aseptic connectors. 

As data centers and high performance computing continue to drive demand for higher densities and increased efficiency, liquid cooling is expanding as a method of thermal management.
Liquid thermal management systems rely upon one small but critical design component: the connector.

Choosing the right fluid connectors can improve patient safety and user convenience while maximizing sealing and flow performance.
As computer and server manufacturers turn to liquid cooling systems to more efficiently remove excess heat, quick disconnect couplings are playing an important role in system performance without compromising reliability or serviceability.

When liquid contents are hazardous—and even when they aren’t—closed system dispensing delivers significant economic, safety and environmental benefits to people and processes.
Recent design innovations in valve design, optimized flow area calculations and isolation of the valve actuation springs from the fluid flow path have led to new low pressure, thermoplastic quick disconnect couplings incorporating flush face non-spill valve technology.

Different types of screw threads have evolved for fastening and hydraulic systems. In this paper, you’ll learn about the different types of threads and how they are used.
In dozens of industries around the world, dangerous chemicals are transferred from their original shipping containers into smaller jugs or buckets or applied to other end-use processes. Learn how this can be dangerous and what CPC is doing about it.

It’s easy to take the humble hose barb for granted. After spending hours evaluating chemical compatibility, peak pressure and flow rate, you not only need to pick just the right tubing or hose, but also how to connect them.
Bioprocessors are challenged with meeting market demand in a tough economy. That means finding ways to make processing systems more flexible, reliable and cost effective while protecting media sterility and integrity.
