How does the DPTE®-XS system work?

DPTE System step 1 line up

1. Line up the DPTE®-XS Alpha and Beta parts

The Alpha part is mounted on a support – commonly an isolator, RABS, BSC, or cleanroom.

The Beta part consists of a container, bag, or other Beta device used for the transfer of components, solids, or liquids.

DPTE System step 2 rotate

2. Rotate the Beta part 60° to ensure leak tight seal

The Alpha parts and Beta parts are connected by a manual 60° rotation which detached the doors from their supports and joins them together.

Tightness is secured by the lip seals of the new assembly.

DPTE System step 3 open

3. Open the doors without breaking sterility or containment

The doors can now be opened without breaking sterility or containment.

The combination of DPTE® Alpha and DPTE® Beta parts is a validated solution. Used together, they provide highly secure transfer and protect your production.

Leak-Tight Transfer

Once connected, the Alpha and Beta components join together to form a single unit.

The DPTE® Alpha/Beta's safety interlocks and lip seals ensure reliable and leak-tight transfer. The assembly supports the safety of users and patients by minimizing the risk of contamination, and ensuring the DPTE® system can be opened without breaking sterility or containment.

The DPTE® Alpha port is fixed onto the cleanroom, filling line or isolator wall.

Ultra-Safe Transfer

The core of the DPTE® system is the Alpha port with its secure interlock enabling totally safe connections and disconnections. Simple and easy to use, it minimizes the risk of contamination.

  • The operator cannot open the DPTE® Alpha door when the DPTE® Beta part is not properly connected.
  • The operator cannot disconnect the DPTE® Beta part if the double door is not closed.
  • The operator cannot open the DPTE® Alpha door when the DPTE® Beta port is not equipped with the Beta part.

Validated Solution

Fully validated, the DPTE® Alpha and DPTE® Beta equipment work perfectly together to greatly improve process efficiency and avoid contamination risk.

Installing a complete DPTE® system removes the need to invest your resources and time in attempting to validate a unique combination of Alpha and Beta parts, which means a sizeable reduction in the overall project cost.

Match your DPTE® Alpha port with the right Beta part from Getinge to guarantee your product and/or operator safety.
