Entegris and Qosina: Expediting Single-use Bioprocess Solutions Together

Have you ever needed to perform a test only to be held up by wait times for a single-use component? Perhaps you just need a small order of tubing or connectors, without everything that comes with a bulk order? We want to help customers get the right quantity of components when they need them. That’s why Entegris is proud to announce a new relationship with Qosina, a leading global supplier of OEM single-use components to the medical and pharmaceutical industries.

A one-stop source with more than 5,000 single-use, off-the-shelf components, Qosina brings over 40 years of experience offering a wide range of products for single-use bioprocess applications, from prototyping through production. Scott Herskovitz, President, CEO and Chairperson of the Board at Qosina, shares his enthusiasm, “Qosina is excited to partner with Entegris, which offers innovative products for critical bioprocess operations. The Aramus™ 2D bag chambers are the perfect addition to the Qosina bioprocess portfolio, offering protection of high-value fluids and filling a gap in our product offering.”

Customers can expect the same level of care from Qosina as they get from Entegris, while experiencing the ready-made convenience of our Aramus bags, the most versatile and robust single-use bag available. With robust freezing, pristine interiors, chemical compatibility, and no sample hold up, Aramus bags can seamlessly replace polyethylene bags and bottles in a myriad of applications. Swapping existing single-use bags with our Aramus fluid-handling solutions is a smart way to keep your process moving when supply chain issues occur, ensuring you can continue to deliver the cleanest, safest product without interruption. Additional benefits include:

  • Compatibility with extreme hot and cold temperatures
  • Reduction of particulates in final process fluids
  • Foolproof implementation

Easy to Fit into Your Process:

  • Keeps 10 mL to 20 L bags in stock, along with assembly components
  • Defines custom configurations in a variety of sizes, including tubing and connectors to fit specific needs
  • Achieves maximum sample retrieval

Quality You Can Count On:

  • Manufactured in an ISO Class 5 cleanroom, above the industry standard of Class 7, reducing particulate and contamination risk
  • Multiple manufacturing sites provide supply chain continuity
  • Chemical compatibility with dimethyl sulfoxide and many other chemistries
  • Stays strong at extreme temperatures: -196° to 121°C (-321° to 250°F)
  • Low extractable and leachable (E&L) profile
  • Animal origin-free
  • Built-in traceability with each bag imprinted with an identification number
  • Comprehensive validation package

This versatility enables successful customer outcomes such as increased drug product safety in cold chain workflow, reduced out-of-specification incidents, and increased throughput manufacturing efficiency in large-scale freeze processes, allowing customers peace of mind throughout their process.

One in a Billion: AMC Filtration Essential to a Safer, Healthy Environment

Airborne molecular contamination (AMC) is common to every environment. These contaminants are not physical particles such as those found in airborne dust or pathogens. AMC is gas molecules that are part of and move with air. These molecules are the result of outgassing or emissions from virtually anything that can be found in a given setting, from humans and animals to equipment, materials and processes, as well as external AMC sources. Sensitivity to these gases varies widely in each environment.
