DPTE-BetaBag®

Optimize your production with a single-use DPTE® transfer solution

The DPTE-BetaBag® is a solution for safe, fast, and contamination-free transfer of components to maintain high-speed production.

The DPTE® 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.

Single-use beta bags for sterile transfer

  • Fully validated and guaranteed transfer process
  • Significantly reduced risk of biological and particulate contamination
  • Save on validation and on-site cleaning times and costs
  • Optimized productivity
  • A large variety of applications

Based on the DPTE® System - the original rapid transfer port (RTP)

When it comes to securing aseptic transfer, only the original DPTE® system from Getinge gives you the confidence you want and the quality you need.

DPTE® brings you the highest level of production and patient safety, a flexible and cost-effective process along with the assurance of rigorous validation and reliable expert support.

Getinge develops, manufactures, and supports complete RTP solutions:

  • DPTE® Alpha ports 
  • Single-use DPTE-BetaBag® and reusable DPTE® Beta Containers
  • DPTE® Transfer Trolley for both bags and containers
  • DPTE® Transfer Leak Testers (TLT)

DPTE-BetaBag® production in ISO 5 and ISO 7 cleanrooms

Validated solution

The validation of our DPTE-BetaBag® complies with international regulations:

  • Mechanical validation: leak testing of DPTE® Beta unit, leak testing if bag welded onto DPTE®, seal strength of the bag
  • Sterility validation: gamma irradiation cycle between 25 and 50 kGy
  • Microbiological validation: Bioburden, Endotoxin level
  • Particulate validation

The DPTE-BetaBag® range is assembled in ISO 5 and ISO 7 environments
for ultra-clean production.
