Mediatech Becomes Exclusive Supplier for Rapak Biotech Aseptic Filling Systems

  • Mediatech and Rapak entered into a business agreement for the exclusive marketing and sale of aseptic filling equipment and filling glands, including Rapak’s Intasept® sterile systems.

    The Intasept technology was designed for bioprocess containers used in large-scale production of drugs and biologics. Each bioprocess container has a 16mm Intasept gland. The gland features two laminated barrier membranes, which allows interface sterilization and resealing without removing the bag from the filling head, according to Rapak officials.

    The Intasept Model 2416M Filler is just one of the Rapak filling machines offered by Mediatech. The fill glands and adapters are sold in conjunction with the sterile filling machines.
