Title: CONTAINER FOR FLEXIBLE BAG COMPRISING TWO WORKING POSITIONS
Abstract:
The container (10, 110, 210) for a flexible bag (11) intended to contain a biopharmaceutical fluid, comprises a lower wall (12), two lateral walls (14, 16, 114, 116, 214, 216) and a transfer wall (18) making an obtuse angle with the lower wall (12), so that the container (10, 110, 210) is able to occupy a first position of stable equilibrium and a second position in which the transfer wall (18) is at right angles to the vertical direction (Y). The container (10, 110, 210) is configured to pass from the first position into the second position, and vice versa, by rotation about an edge corner (22) connecting the lower wall (12) and the transfer wall (18), and is able to hold itself in the first or the second position when a mass above a predetermined threshold is in place in the container (10, 110, 210). When the container (10, 110, 210) is occupying the second position, it passes, under the effect of gravity, from the second position into the first position when the mass is no longer in place in the container (10, 110, 210).
