Single-use aseptic sampling system, the better way to sample

Your test results are only as accurate as your samples

Characteristics of good samples:

  • 🗹 Representative of overall materials and in sufficient quantity for testing and analysis.
  • 🗹 Repeatable and accessible
  • 🗹 MUST NOT introduce contaminants to process and bulk material.

Your samples are only as reliable as your sampling procedure

Sampling plans often fail because they are a pain to carry out. Here is how the QualiTru Aseptic Sampling System integrates seamlessly into your SOP in 3 steps.

Step 1. Install stainless steel ports.

A good sampling point would be at the back of your receiver jar through a TruStream Sanitary Port to draw representative samples at any point throughout your process.

  • 🗹 Diagnostic function
  • 🗹 System quality check
  • 🗹 CIP cleanliness check
  • 🗹 Overall liquid quality control

Step 2. Secure a sterile septum into the port

These 7- or 12-channel septa are patented innovations that allow samples to be drawn through single-use channels. Effectively eliminates the risk of contamination to your sample, product, and process.

The QualiTru Aseptic Sampling System:
  • 🗹 Collect perfectly representative samples
  • 🗹 No sterilization needed between sampling
  • 🗹 No false positives
Step 3. Collect samples via a single-use channel into sterile collection syringes or collection bags.

Why are more sampling points better?

  • 🗹 Control and monitor all materials in your aseptic process anywhere, anytime
  • 🗹 Accurately pinpoint microbial detection for better diagnostic and effective counteraction
  • 🗹 Monitor your equipment performance
  • 🗹 Validate your standard operational process
  • 🗹 Protect your business from costly downtime

QualiTru offers a series of stainless ports designed for mounting onto various equipment and piping, making sample collecting easily accessible.

There is no excuse, no reason for avoiding this vital step of reducing risk and protecting your liquid process.


Dairy and Food

Install a QualiTru Sanitary Recessed Port with Security Lid on the side of the tanker truck to pull a sample prior to entering the receiving bay.

Tanker Truck Side Sampling

  • No more workplace injury from climbing to the top of the tanker truck
  • No more dipping into the liquid tank to spread contaminants
  • Reduce false positives and load rejection
  • 🗹 Control access to tanker
  • 🗹 Representative sample collection
  • 🗹 Increase operational efficiency

Sampling plan and options

Pen sampling for mastitis control plans, and stop the spread of pathogenic organisms that can directly affect milk product and herd health.

Smooth integration of sampling into your SOP

  • Raw product quality control: safe and convenient sampling point at the side of Milk Tanker Truck
  • Improve operational efficiency and Collect the best representative milk sample directly at Receiving Bay.
  • Raw Product Sampling: Install a QualiTru TruStream Sanitary Recessed Port in the raw receiving silo to collect a representative sample for regulatory or milk quality samples.
  • System Diagnostic: Install a QualiTru TruStream Sanitary Port at any location throughout your fluid path as part of the diagnostic function, system quality check, Clean in Place (CIP) cleanliness check and overall milk quality
  • Post-Pasteurization Monitoring: Install a QualiTru TruStream Sanitary Port on the backside of the pasteurizer to monitor post-pasteurization contamination and to verify pasteurization effectiveness and efficiency.
  • Collection Tank for Pasteurized Products: Install a QualiTru TruStream Sanitary Tank Port or Recessed Port on the exterior of the pasteurized tank or silo to collect samples for regulatory requirements or quality systems. samples.
  • Filling System: Install a QualiTru TruStream Sanitary Port just before the filler to collect samples for regulatory requirements or quality systems. Samples can also be used to verify the sterility of the product just prior to packaging and to verify the lack of contaminants system-wide.
