Sterile mixing equipment for manufacturing medical implants

Sterile medical implant

Magnetic mixers have become the trusted, go-to solution for applications where sterility is critical. The primary benefit of mag mixers is containment and isolation. Simply put, everything inside the container stays in and everything outside the vessel stays out.

The attributes that are most critical in the biopharma industry are also important in other industries that use mag mixers.

  • Containment and isolation
  • Easy to clean and maintain
  • No baffles
  • Ability to make small batches in larger vessels (i.e., mixing to the last drop)

Is there room for the medical device industry to benefit from mag mixers?

Sure, there is! This industry makes discrete parts but, quite often, these parts go inside the human body. There are numerous liquids involved in the manufacturing processes and these liquids must always remain sterile.

Solving customer challenges

Steridose has sold its Sterimixers to a manufacturer of implantable medical devices that are made in a sterile liquid environment.

Some of the applications such as the mixing and storage of buffers were simple and involved waterlike ingredients. Some other requirements were a little more difficult, such as the mixing and storage of rinse/wash solutions. Some were a lot more difficult and involved viscosities in the 500 – 700 cps range.

There is another common misconception that mag mixers can only mix water-like products. This is not true as Mag mixers can mix products with viscosities up to 1000 cps.

Contact Steridose for support if you require the mixing of liquids with viscosities as high as 1000 cps.

Support for sterile manufacturing processes

If you have a manufacturing process that requires sterility, regardless of the industry, Steridose can help!
