Quattroflow, part of PSG and Dover, is to increase manufacturing capacity for its single-use quaternary diaphragm pumps with the construction of a new ISO Class 7 cleanroom in Duisburg, Germany.
The additional cleanroom, which is expected to open in October 2021, will more than double the Quattroflow cleanroom space in Duisburg. It will help support growing customer demand for single-use pump products used in the production of biologics, drugs and vaccines. The new cleanroom will operate independently from the existing one while following the same assembly procedures to ensure product uniformity.
“Single-use technologies are expanding rapidly in biopharma production as the biopharmaceuticals market continues to grow, including playing a key role in enabling manufacturers to quickly ramp production for Covid-19 vaccines,” said Karl Buscher, president of PSG. “Expanding our cleanroom footprint is a critical step in increasing our single-use manufacturing capacity to satisfy this growing market demand. Additionally, this investment further strengthens our production reliability and capabilities to ensure product consistency and safety.”
