Getinge La Calhène - Tongs oppening a DPTE® transfer system
Remote manipulator tongs opening a DPTE® system

This patented transfer device is based on the interaction of two separate units - the Alpha part
and the Beta part - each with a door and two closing and sealing functions. The fixed Alpha part
is mounted on the containment wall while the Beta part can adapt to any type of mobile equipment
(container, bag, cask, tunnel, etc.). The DPTE® system was developed in the 1960's for nuclear
applications: waste removal, sample transfer and equipment insertion inside cells. Pharmaceutical
applications followed in the late 1970's. More than 30,000 DPTE® systems are in use worldwide.
