You mean I can take a truly representative sample in an uncontrolled environment??

It’s simple with this 4-valve rig from ASEPCO, and it’s impossible to do so easily and reliably any other way.

Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Autoclave a bagged sample bottle with a filter and an ASEPCO valve (V3) sealing the opening.
  2. Unbag the sample bottle as shown, connecting the closed V3 to the closed tank sample Valve V2.
  3. Steam behind the flow paths of V2 and V3 as shown in pink.
  4. Close steam source (V1) and condensate drain (V4). You now have a sterile path between your process and your sample bottle.
  5. Open the sample bottle (V3) and the tank sample valve (V2), and take your sample as shown in blue.
  6. Close the sample valve (V2), then the sample receptacle valve (V3). Drain V4 (lose less than 15 ml of product with the ASEPCO close-coupled condensate valve) and remove your sample bottle.

CONGRATULATIONS! You have a sample that is truly representative of your process fluid. You can do this reliably anytime during the process, each time using the behind-the-seat flowpath design of ASEPCO valves to assure the aseptic control of your sample.
