The containers vary in shape, with the first resembling a jar, the second a bottle, and the third another jar with straighter sides. Above the containers, four small circles connected by lines suggest motion or automation in the process.
Final Fill

Seamless integration into your final fill process, high level of security, representative samples.


CHOOSE YOUR NovaSeptum® SURe Sterile Sampling Assembly for your Single-Use Process

To select the best single-use sampling solution for your process, first consider your preferred connection type: heat welding or aseptic connection. The pre-configured assembly is then easily integrated into your process via C-Flex® tubing or an AsepticQuik® connector.

Then identify the appropriate sampling container based on sample volume, type of assay, storage condition, and other key parameters in your sampling plan. Our NovaSeptum® SURe sterile sampling assemblies are standard single and manifold units of three or five containers available in bags, bottles, syringes, or conical tubes.
