Title
(EN) CONNECTOR ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE CONNECTEUR
Abstract
(EN)
A connector assembly includes first and second fittings and first and second membrane assemblies. Each fitting defines a respective aperture. Each membrane assembly has a layer sealing the aperture and a removable contamination containment layer overlying a respective sealing layer. The first and second fittings may be resiliently coupled in biased opposition to urge positive contact between the first and second removable contamination containment layers and/or the first and second sealing layers. In one application, a connector assembly according to the invention may define a fluid communication path for handling a fluid without allowing the level of contaminants in the fluid to increase. A connector assembly according to the invention may be used to handle a biological fluid while maintaining the fluid free of viable contaminating microorganisms or preserving its sterility, for exemple.
(FR)
Ensemble connecteur comprenant un premier et un deuxième raccords, ainsi qu'un premier et un deuxième ensembles membrane. Chaque raccord définit une ouverture respective. Chaque ensemble membrane possède une couche scellant l'ouverture, ainsi qu'une couche amovible retenant les contaminants et recouvrant une couche d'étanchéité respective. Le premier et le deuxième raccords peuvent être accouplés élastiquement et sollicités en opposition afin de réaliser un contact positif entre la première et la deuxième couches amovibles de retenue des contaminants et/ou la première et la deuxième couches d'étanchéité en les poussant l'une vers l'autre. Dans un mode de réalisation, un ensemble connecteur peut définir un trajet de communication fluide afin de manipuler un liquide sans permettre au niveau de contaminants contenus dans le liquide d'augmenter. On peut utiliser cet ensemble connecteur afin de manipuler un liquide biologique tout en le maintenant exempt d'une contamination par des micro-organismes viables ou en le préservant à l'état stérile, par exemple.
