Sterile Sampling

A closed sterile sampling method is increasingly preferred by regulatory authorities over traditional sampling methods, such as glass bottles or steam-in-place (SIP) stainless steel valves. The NovaSeptum® GO sterile sampling system is designed to provide you with the flexibility and safety you need when sampling at any point in your aseptic or sterile biomanufacturing process. Its security features and closed design significantly reduce the risk of cross contamination while ensuring the highest level of protection for your samples, operators, and processes.

  • Closed Design: reduces risk of contamination and delivers representative samples
  • Flexible: Choice of multiple connection and container formats makes it suitable for most processes. Multiple samples possible from a single point of access.
  • Easy to Use: Plug and play system with single-use containers
  • Secure: Security tags prevent accidental actuation
  • Compliant: in line with the most stringent and demanding regulatory and quality requirements
  • Sterile Disconnection: crimping tool prevents contamination


NovaSeptum® GO holders and security tag. Easy integration into stainless steel system with TC, in-line and Ingold® connection. Various number of ports tailored to your specific sampling needs.
Step 1: Select Your Holder

Choose the holder that fits your process: Tri-clamp (TC), In-line or In-Gold®. TC holders are also available preloaded with various container types

Choose Your Container Format
Step 2: Choose Your Container Format

Choose from a range of bottles, bags, syringes, and conical tubes. These come in a variety of sizes and configurations – single sampling, manifold or preloaded.

Robust Sampling to Suit your Specific Needs in Each Step of your Aseptic Manufacturing Process

From the bioreactor to the final filling, at each step of the biomanufacturing of a molecule, the NovaSeptum® GO sterile sampling system provides biomanufacturers with consistent and representative samples to analyze pH, conductivity, cell viability, metabolites, monitor bioburden, and endotoxins level.

  • Media preparation – monitor and adjust process parameters by sampling for pH, osmolality and/or conductivity
  • Bioreactor – perform up to 45 representative samples and enable sterile additions to adjust or feed your process
  • Bioburden reduction – excellent recovery of microorganisms from all sampling containers, with in-line connection holders that make it easy to add additional bioburden monitoring steps
  • Chromatography – easy monitoring of bioburden, endotoxin, and quality prior to the next processing step protecting expensive resins from contaminants
  • Sterile filtration – sample to demonstrate the effectiveness of your sterile filtration, validated sampling containers ensuring no impact to endotoxin recovery, minimize sample volume of valuable product
  • Final fill – seamless integration into your final fill process, high level of security, representative samples
