Why should you use NovaSeptum® to sample your process?
Closed and sterile sampling from any point throughout the process, reducing the risk of contamination
Collect accurate and multiple samples for process monitoring from a single point of access
No steam sterilization required in between sampling events
All sampling containers are disposable, so no glass washing is required in between sampling events or process batches

The most important step of your medium preparation is ensuring that all required specifications are met, prior to forward processing. The NovaSeptum® Sterile Sampling System enables fast and easy collection of representative samples, so that pH, osmolality and/or conductivity can be analyzed. If the analysis indicates that key parameters need to be adjusted, the NovaSeptum® system can also be used for sterile additions and process adjustments.
