DPTE® Beta Containers

Safely transfer material from one containment area to another

Stainless steel or polyethylene DPTE® Beta Containers allow for safe transfer into and out of a barrier system in various life science applications. The Getinge DPTE® rapid transfer system is based on the interaction of an Alpha part with a Beta part – each fitted with a door, a lock, and a sealing function. 

The DPTE® Beta Containers are available in stainless steel or polyethylene with various diameters and lengths.

Reusable canisters for safe bi-directional transfer

  • Modular design
  • Optional racks
  • Reliable and safe transfer of heavy, complex parts
  • Validated solution
  • A large variety of applications

Only original DPTE® alpha and beta parts together form a validated aseptic transfer solution

Transfer of sterile or toxic products in and out of barrier systems is one of the most critical aspects of pharmaceutical production and is necessary to protect both operator and product. Canisters are used to bring in, remove, or transfer material from one environment to another, without breaking containment.

Getinge produces a range of:

  • standard polyethylene containers,
  • standard to customized stainless steel containers,
  • standard to customized stainless steel racks,
  • container accessories.

Minimize the risk of microbial contamination associated with operator contact during the manufacturing process with DPTE® Beta Containers.

These canisters are compatible with Getinge DPTE® Alpha flange of the same diameter.

The Alpha and Beta parts fit together with a leak-tight locking method, meaning the integrity of the transfer operation cannot be broken.

Sterilization options

Autoclavable, gamma, or H202 sterilizable containers

The reusable PE/HDPE containers and the material within the container can be sterilized using gamma irradiation or bio-decontaminated with H2O2 to ensure a safe material transfer process.

The reusable stainless steel containers are engineered for steam sterilization processes. An integrated hydrophobic sterile filter allows for steam to enter the container, maintaining sterile conditions after the sterilization process. Stainless steel containers may also be biodecontaminated with H2O2, if necessary.
