Kleenpak™ Sterile Connectors

The disposable Kleenpak sterile connector allows for the dry connection of two separate fluid pathways, while maintaining the sterile integrity of both. The connector consists of a male and a female connector, each covered by a vented peel-away strip that protects the port and maintains the sterility of the sterile fluid pathway. Different connector options are available to allow for the connection of 15.8 mm (⅝ in.), 13 mm (½ in.), 9.6 mm (⅜ in.) or 6 mm (¼ in.) nominal tubing. Kleenpak sterile connectors can either be autoclaved up to 130 °C or Gamma sterilized.

Benefits

  • No capital equipment required
  • Connection is made in seconds
  • Connector can be autoclaved or Gamma sterilized
  • Easy to make connection – even in cramped environment
  • Maintains a sterile fluid pathway upon activation of device
  • Peel-away strip maintains sterility until ready to use
  • Vented to allow steam penetration and to prevent tubing collapse after autoclaving
  • Shape coding ensures proper alignment
  • Locking mechanism prevents incorrect assembly
  • Device makes audible click when engaged
  • Permanent connection for security – cannot be re-opened
