Title: DEVICE FOR STORING, TRANSPORTING AND/OR HANDLING A LIQUID AND METHOD OF HANDLING A STERILE OR ASEPTIC LIQUID
Abstract:
A device for storing, transporting and/or handling a liquid or liquids and methods for using the device are described. The device is suitable for use with sterile or aseptic liquids, particularly with large liquid volumes such as 10-1000 liters or more, and avoids the need for bags, bins and carriers commonly used for storing and transporting large volumes of liquids. The device comprises a coiled tubing. The coiled tubing can be loaded onto a spool to support the coiled tubing. The tubing can be filled, sealed, stored and transported in a more robust manner than previously achieved with bags, bins and carriers.
