Peristaltic pumps are also used in the manufacture of 2019-nCoV vaccines. In which links are the peristaltic pumps used? Recently, the epidemic situation in various countries has become severe again. The characteristics of the Delta variant are that the transmission capacity is significantly enhanced, and the second is that it may increase the severity of the disease. The third is that the protection of 2019-nCoV vaccine against Delta virus may be reduced, but the current vaccine It still has a good preventive and protective effect on Delta virus.
The birth of an inactivated COVID-19 vaccine must go through the key steps of cell culture, virus culture, inactivation, purification, proportioning, filling, and packaging.
These links can be used in peristaltic pumps. For example, in cell culture, peristaltic pumps can be used in bioreactors or fermentation tanks to transfer medium, acid, lye, etc., to maintain the operation of the fermentation process, and to avoid contamination of the medium. possibility
Vaccine must be in strict accordance with the rated dose. If the dose is insufficient, it may not constitute an effective immune system. If the dose exceeds the standard, it may cause adverse human reactions. Therefore, the accuracy requirements in the vaccine filling process are extremely strict.
Lead Fluid WSP3000 microliter peristaltic pump is a key product targeted at the biopharmaceutical industry. The min filling volume is 1 microliter, and the min error is ±0.2%, which fully meets the filling requirements of vaccines.
Why does the manufacture of the 2019-nCoV vaccine choose a peristaltic pump?
The 2019-nCoV vaccine inactivated vaccine is prepared from the new coronavirus variant, so it is pathogenic before inactivation. The first-level barrier equipment (such as isolators, biological safety cabinets, airtight exhaust hoods, process production tank systems, etc.), pipelines and valves involved in the operation of pathogenic microorganisms should have mechanisms to ensure that there is no leakage of pathogenic microorganisms during use.
The peristaltic pump is an important equipment in the process of vaccine preparation and dispensing. The fluid transported only touches the pump tube, ensuring complete fluid isolation and greatly avoiding contact between personnel and fluid.
Constant flow, mild, low shear force during the conveying process can accurately control the flow rate. With suck-back function, zero dripping can be achieved. Daily maintenance is simple, only need to replace the peristaltic pump hose, the filling speed can reach 120 bottles/min, which can effectively improve the efficiency of vaccine manufacturing.
In addition to its application in vaccines, what else can the peristaltic pump do in epidemic prevention work?
In the clinical treatment of 2019-nCoV vaccine, the peristaltic pump is used in the CRRT (Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy) machine, which effectively improves the treatment efficiency and helps 2019-nCoV vaccine patient to recover as soon as possible.
Also in the manufacture of disinfectants required for epidemic prevention, the peristaltic pump can also be used in the filling step. The pipe of the peristaltic pump is not easy to be blocked and can easily transfer materials with a certain viscosity, reducing maintenance costs and improving industrial efficiency. Peristaltic pumps have fully assisted the anti-epidemic work, and have contributed to each key of the fight against the epidemic.
Facing the epidemic again, we must do personal protection, wear a mask, wash your hands, no gathering. I believe the epidemic will dissipate.
