Central Research Laboratories Introduces New E Rapid Transfer Port Model

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Nov. 9, 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 release of the E Rapid Transfer Port (ERTP), a new model in its Rapid Transfer Port product family.

For 25 years, CRL has been designing its RTPs for use as transfer solutions in Life Science applications where cleanability and cleanliness are critical. The ERTP utilizes the same Double-Door Transfer System as its other RTP models and offers the following enhanced features:

  • An access door that can be unlatched and opened with one hand
  • A 45-degree handle-turn radius that frees up valuable space inside the isolator
  • Fewer moving parts to reduce maintenance
  • Standardized sizes for compatibility with most common beta-flange systems, including retrofits
  • Easy to clean and maintain

“We constantly work to improve our products, and the E Rapid Transfer Port follows in that proud tradition,” said Rob Weber, Manager of Projects & Proposals for CRL. “The new features of the ERTP further optimize the production processes of our clients by simplifying the unit’s method of operation and reducing maintenance requirements. As a result, the ERTP is the most streamlined and cost-effective solution on the market, while remaining safe and reliable.”
