Sydney's Key Diagnostics has released a single-use aseptic sampling system for liquid dairy products.
Developed by QualiTru, TruDraw comes with a tamper-evident feature and is a sterilised, sealed container with an attached sterile needle to draw a sample in, protecting against the risk of external contamination.
The product can be used for secure sample tracking of an individual container, which works with TruStream fittings and ports.
It comes in a disposable blue cap with sterile 59mL container and protects against environmental exposure, which affects a sample’s accuracy.
Used in conjunction with QualiTru’s TruStream sanitary sampling ports, TruDraw can be drawn from the side or rear of a trailer, without having to climb on top of a tanker.
The TruDraw Single Samplers collect samples from the 12-channel and 7-channel septa and provide a chain of custody process from sample collection to laboratory testing.
The updated septa feature a permanent, thermal-aluminium label that indicates which channels have been used to avoid cross-contamination. QualiTru worked with CSP Technologies to develop the new septa.
