New from the Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG) is the Flexicon PF7 peristaltic tabletop aseptic liquid filling machine optimised for operation in GMP-regulated areas such as biotechnology and diagnostics. Engineered with Flexicon’s trademark precision performance, the PF7 adds a more intuitive, validation-friendly operator interface to reduce the risk of costly filling errors.
Optimised for precision dispensing by weight or by volume using Accusil tubing, the PF7 is designed to work with single-use fluid paths, thus removing any risk of cross contamination. Importantly, changing the fluid path can be achieved in less than 60 seconds.
The PF7 comes programmed with recommended filling parameters based on Flexicon’s 30 years of experience. Users can adapt filling parameters to achieve optimum accuracy for their application needs, up to 200 user programmes can be stored and password protected for future use.
At the heart of all Flexicon systems is the low shear, gentle pumping action of peristaltic fillers, which ensure product is transferred undamaged and with high precision. The new PF7 has been developed specifically for the filling of high-value sensitive fluids in GMP production and cleanroom environments. With this in mind, the machine offers repeatable filling of volumes from as low as 0.2 mL up to 250 mL, with accuracy better than ±0.5%.
