DPTE Alpha


DPTE Alpha

The originator and manufacturer of the DPTE® system


The DPTE® Alpha port is the core of the transfer system that La Calhène created over 50 years ago. The DPTE® system provides bi-directional containment without intermediate bio-decontamination.

The Alpha port is a part that is fixed to a surface (e.g. the wall of an isolator) and consists of a lip seal, a flange and a door which can be opened without any tools. Connection to the Beta part is provided by rotating the Beta part when the transfer system is secured.

Getinge La Calhène's goal is improving performance and security. The DPTE® is equipped with safety features which prevent any accidental rupture of containment. For instance, the Alpha door cannot be opened if the Beta port is not in position, incorrectly equipped or incomplete. Its refined design results in surfaces that can easily be cleaned and decontaminated.
