Patent Awarded to AdvantaPure®’s AdvantaPass™ Clean Room Wall Pass-Through System
System Ensures Room Isolation During Fluid Transfer

Southampton, PA — AdvantaPure announces that U.S. patent 8,870,230 has been assigned to its AdvantaPass wall pass-through technology. Introduced earlier this year, AdvantaPass is used to transfer large volumes of fluids between clean rooms during pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical production. The system maintains the separation of room atmospheres and minimizes cross contamination risks.
AdvantaPassAdvantaPass combines Single-Use tubing, connectors and seals with permanent, wall-mounted stainless steel components to eliminate cleaning validations associated with clean room protocols. It’s the first system of its kind to provide complete isolation between manufacturing suites when conveying multiple lines of fluid through a single wall portal.
This uniqueness — using a single portal for more than one transfer line — is part of why AdvantaPass was awarded the patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. No other system is designed to manage more than one line per wall portal without breaking protocol and risking room or product contamination.
"Combining the durability and dependability of stainless steel parts with the purity, ease of use and cost-effectiveness of Single-Use components offers several advantages," notes Tony Butler, Manager of Single-Use Applications for AdvantaPure. "AdvantaPass involves fewer moving parts and less maintenance than similar systems, and it’s easy to assemble and disassemble. It’s customizable and can be used with new construction or retrofitted."
Another benefit of AdvantaPass is that it saves time and expense over the sterilization and validation requirements of traditional hard piping transfer systems. Its Single-Use tubing and components are available in platinum-cured silicone or AdvantaFlex® biopharmaceutical grade thermoplastic elastomer (TPE). Additionally, AdvantaPass is typically less costly than other wall pass-through systems.
