New Single-Use Beta Bags from Central Research Laboratories Improve Cost and Efficiency in the Manufacturing of Critical Life Science Products

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., May 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – Central Research Laboratories (CRL), part of Destaco and Dover (NYSE: DOV), and a global leader in the remote-handling industry, today announced the launch of its new Single-Use Beta Bag product line. Single-Use Beta Bags are indispensable components in ready-to-use, component-transfer and waste-handling applications during the manufacturing of Life Science products.

“Our goal is to create and provide safe, reliable, efficient and cost-effective transfer solutions for every application need within the Life Sciences segment, and our new Single-Use Bags do just that,” said Chris Gooding, VP and GM at CRL. “We are pleased to offer another solution that will help our clients maximize their productivity.”

The new 190-mm Single-Use Beta Bags are available in two materials, Tyvek and HDPE (Tyvek-free), and designed for use with DTPE-style alpha ports. They are gamma-sterilizable, a process in which gamma rays are passed through the bag to kill any bacteria that may be present. These features make them an ideal solution for introducing components like stoppers, vials and needles into production lines, or for managing samples and removing waste. Their versatility also makes them a good option for kitting. CRL has a ready inventory of the new Single-Use Beta Bags on hand, which allows them to be shipped anywhere in the world.
