Value Plastics introduces user-friendly, single-use sanitary clamp

Value Plastics recently announced the PharmaLok Series, a new line of ergonomic, single-use sanitary clamps for securing fittings to bag ports and filters in the biopharmaceutical market. According to the company, PharmaLok clamps provide an advancement for the industry, as a number of existing solutions either require tools for closure or consist of multiple components, turning what should be a simple operation into a difficult and awkward process. Easily operated with one hand, PharmaLok’s patent pending design allows easy attachment of fittings to bag ports and filters. The user simply rests the fitting in the PharmaLok’s regulation-sized slot, lightly grips the surrounding handles, and listens for the sound of three clicks to confirm a secure connection. The hygienic clamps are made of a glass-filled nylon material that is both USP Class VI and ISO 11137 certified, and ASME BPE 2009 DT-5-3 compliant.
