Next Generation Safe Delivery Source® Dopant Material Storage and Delivery Package

The Entegris Safe Delivery Source® (SDS®) package has been the leader in providing subatmospheric specialty gas storage and delivery for ion implant dopant materials since its inception more than twenty years ago.

As semiconductor devices advance, increased demands are placed on the purity, productivity, and safety of electronic gases. SDS4, the fourth generation of the SDS product line is designed to address these increasingly stringent demands.

blog-article-inline-12097-1200x600In our paper, “Next Generation Safe Delivery Source® (SDS®4) Dopant Material Storage and Delivery Package” we present key advancements in adsorbent-based packages for storing, handling, and delivering semiconductor dopant gases. Desirable characteristics and properties of adsorbents for use in this application are reviewed. The screening methodology and performance of various carbon and metal organic framework (MOF) adsorbents are evaluated against these characteristics.

Further discussion is included on the testing, design, and selection of cylinder features to continuously improve the SDS product line, making SDS4 the safest and highest performing sub-atmospheric storage and delivery package to- date. Final product performance is demonstrated and verified through beamline ion implantation tool data.

Entegris and Farrar Scientific Announce New Collaboration

Entegris is proud to announce a new relationship with Farrar Scientific, by Trane Technologies – a global climate innovator. Farrar offers best-in-class operating systems for ultra-cold temperature storage and controlled rate freeze/thaw chambers for pharmaceutical, biotech, and biorepository applications. Entegris offers the best-in-class Aramus™ bag for robust cold storage and transport. Collaborating with Farrar enables Entegris to offer a combined solution that accelerates the freeze/thaw process. Powered by Trane Technologies, Farrar’s solutions fill an unmet need for large pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical customers requiring flexible, modular, and efficient ultra-low temperature freeze/thaw processing, as well as -80°C (-112°F) bulk storage reach-ins and -70°C (-94°F) pallet chambers. Farrar’s offerings and monitoring services, which include predictive analytics, provide an alternative to large-scale freezer farms or capital-intensive cold rooms used in the manufacturing of drugs, vaccines, and other biological products. Forced air convection cooling in Farrar’s controlled rate chamber greatly reduces +40˚ to -80˚C (+104° to -112°F) freeze/thaw times from days or weeks to hours, optimizing manufacturing efficiency and improving characteristics such as uniformity and repeatability versus competing technologies."This collaboration is a win-win for the industry,” said Holly Paeper, president, Trane Technologies Life Science Solutions. “Farrar and Entegris solutions jointly represent a step forward in reliability, simplicity, and affordability for end-to-end bioprocessing. We’re excited to discover how we can jointly advance precision temperature technology that helps protect quality and optimizes manufacturing.” Entegris will showcase Farrar’s controlled rate chamber in our new Life Sciences Technology Center in Billerica, MA, which offers life sciences customers the opportunity to leverage our expertise in cold-chain challenges to reduce costs, increase speed to market, and optimize processes. This premier facility brings Entegris’ tools and technologies together in one place, where customers can test equipment for freeze/thaw processes to determine which products best fit their needs. As part of our solutions for manufacturing challenges, we now offer Aramus shaped 2D single-use bags with custom shapes, sizes, and assembly configurations for customers’ space and function requirements. They are resistant to extreme cold temperatures and withstand gamma sterilization, which makes them a preferred solution for freezing, transporting, storing, and thawing drug substances, like COVID-19 vaccines, cell therapies, and gene therapies. “Our new technology center enables our customers to really understand the whole freezing process and optimize it before setting up a new lab of their own,” said John Lynch, vice president, Entegris. “Together with Farrar we are able to provide novel and high-value options for bulk drug freezing.”

Fire and Smoke: Outdoor Air Quality and Your Fab

Summer is the perfect season to enjoy the great outdoors with friends and family. Unless, of course, the air is filled with smoke and ash. The color-coded air quality readings too often go beyond the red danger zone into purple, with an Air Quality Index (AQI) of over 200 parts per million (ppm) of particulate contamination. This particulate count is far above what is safe even for healthy adults. In many parts of the western U.S. and beyond, purple air has become far too familiar.
