TSCD®-Q
Sterile Tubing Welder
Overview How It Works Materials
Sterile Polyurethane Tubing Connections Based on Proven Technology

Built on a legacy of proven thermal welders and cell processing devices from Terumo BCT, the TSCD-Q sterile tubing welder creates strong, sterile polyurethane tubing connections.

This compact, portable welder allows the attachment and removal of components through a sterile process, maintaining a functionally closed system and providing protection from outside contamination.

*The TSCD-Q welder is available in select markets.

Create strong, sterile connections with the TSCD-Q sterile tubing welder

Creates sterile welds in a few easy steps
Quickly and reliably connects two lengths of tubing with 4.75 mm (0.187 in) outer diameter (OD) and 0.787 mm (0.031 in) wall thickness
Provides flexibility in a single device
Welds wet-to-dry, wet-to-wet and dry-to-dry connections
Maintains a functionally closed system; a TSCD wafer is heated to approximately 300 °C (572 °F) to ensure sterility during cutting and welding

*Only PVC tubing with a nominal OD of 5.5 mm (0.215 in) and a nominal wall thickness of .84 mm (0.033 in) in has been tested by Terumo BCT for weld strength and sterility; however, some users have had successful results using other types of thermoplastic tubing (such as C-Flex). If you choose to use tubing other than the tubing specified, it is your responsibility to test for weld strength and sterility according to the standards appropriate for the desired application. Use of tubing other than the PVC tubing specified can cause a low-strength weld joint, which could result in a non-sterile weld.
