The Sterisart® Universal | Gen 4 transforms sterility testing workflows with remote data sharing and paperless documentation. Advanced reporting software simplifies workflow management and ensures compliance with strict regulatory standards, such as 21 CFR Part 11, through secure electronic signatures and audit trails. This maintains data integrity and supports audit readiness.

Integrated barcode scanning technology streamlines sample tracking by efficiently capturing material data across various formats, including QR codes, 2D matrices, and Codabar. This is particularly effective within the limited space of a sterility testing isolator. A high-performance, intuitive 7-inch touchscreen displays real-time data and menu options, all easily accessible even when wearing isolator gloves.

Customizable operational modes enhance control and navigation, featuring a record mode that logs user interactions to support SOP development and workflow automation. This system also incorporates visual guides to reinforce processes and minimize errors. Remotely enabled pump operation facilitates uninterrupted workflows, improving both productivity and operator safety.

Designed for maximum flexibility, the pump seamlessly integrates into diverse workspaces, including benchtops in laminar airflow cabinets, RABS, and sterility testing isolators, and is compatible with a wide variety of canisters. Its corrosion-resistant surface and user-friendly design ensure easy cleaning and decontamination for reliable sterility testing results.
