Switch to Aramus™ Bags: Gain More Value in Each Bag

Why Switch to our Bags?

Supply chain issues? Breaking bags? Freezing problems? Our Aramus™ bags can get you back to making lifesaving therapeutics.

Aramus bags are the most versatile single-use solution available and can replace PE bags and bottles in a myriad of applications seamlessly. 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. Compatible with hot, cold, and reduction of particulates in final process fluids, Aramus bags make sense and are easy to implement. With quick turnaround times, and customer-friendly compatibility, consider our comprehensive set of bag solutions to resolve your process challenges.

Easy to Fit into Your Process:collection-10347-600x600

  • Custom assembly lead times as short as 6-8 weeks thanks to our robust supply-chain infrastructure
  • <7 mL to 20 L bags in stock along with assembly components
  • Custom-configurations in a variety of sizes, including tubing and connectors to fit specific needs
  • Achieve maximum sample retrieval

Quality You Can Count on:Safe-handling-10347-600x600

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

Enables Customer Outcomes:sterilization-gamma-radiation-10347-600x600

  • Increased drug product yield in cold chain workflow–Aramus bags resist damage, reducing product loss
  • Reduced out of specification (OOS) incidents, less time investigating unknown particulates–Aramus bags have lower particulates per volume versus other bags
  • Reduced CAPA(s) due to unknown contaminants-Aramus defined E&L profile only has one arbitrary element
  • Increased throughput/manufacturing efficiency in large scale freeze processes-Aramus bag footprint is optimized to container/freezer size
  • Increased recovery with a lower surface energy– Aramus bags provides excellent recovery of product.

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.”

Entegris and HOF begin Partnership to bring Added Value to Biopharm Bulk Drug Substance, Cold Storage, and Transport

Entegris is proud to announce a new relationship with HOF Sonderanlagenbau GmbH, an international provider of freeze/thaw equipment and special solutions for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors. Entegris offers the best-in-class Aramus™ bag for robust cold storage and transport. Collaborating with HOF enables Entegris to offer a combined solution for our customers that accelerate the freeze/thaw process and help showcase our new Life Sciences Technology Center, built to offer customers the opportunity to leverage our cold-chain supply expertise to optimize processes, reduce costs, and increase speed to market.

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.
