GEA launches separator for blood plasma fractionation

GEA hycon separator

GEA introduced its automatic separator, the hycon, for one-touch production in the separation of blood plasma and plasma proteins in clean room applications.

In a closed process, the centrifuge is self-cleaning and has a customer specific solids tank for improved hygiene conditions, prevention of cross-contamination and batch safety. The enclosed three-room design features a suspended bowl with hood and solids trap located in a clean room mounted below the separator frame, while the drive units are located in a lower-classified room above. The solids are discharged automatically from the suspended separator bowl at reduced or full operating speed under sterile conditions.
