The TSCD-II from Terumo BCT makes sterile connections between plastic tubing in blood banking & cell therapy manufacturing environments. Particles are generated when a heated wafer cuts through PVC tubes. Team 12 designed & tested a particle filtration system that integrates with the TSCD-II to facilitate use of the welder in an ISO7 cleanroom. The system reduces the number of particles.
