Biotechnology - Performance criteria for vessels - Part 6: Chromatography columns

This European Standard specifies performance criteria for chromatography columns used in biotechnological processes with respect to the potential risks to the worker and the environment from microorganisms in use.  This European Standard applies where the intended use of chromatography columns includes hazardous or potentially hazardous microorganisms used in biotechnological processes or where exposure of the worker or the environment to such microorganisms is restricted for reasons of safety.

Biotechnik - Leistungskriterien für Behälter - Teil 6: Chromatographiesäulen

1 Anwendungsbereich
Diese Europäische Norm legt Leistungskriterien für bei biotechnischen Verfahren verwendete Chromato-
graphiesäulen im Hinblick auf potentielle Gefährdungen für die Beschäftigten und die Umwelt fest, die
von den im Verfahren verwendeten Mikroorganismen ausgehen.
Diese Europäische Norm gilt, sobald die vorgesehene Anwendung von Chromatographiesäulen den
Gebrauch gefährlicher oder potentiell gefährlicher Mikroorganismen in biotechnischen Verfahren ein-
schließt, oder wenn die Exposition der Beschäftigten oder der Umwelt gegenüber solchen Mikroorganis-
men aus Sicherheitsgründen eingeschränkt wird.
Wenn wesentliche Teile des Gehäuses aus Glas oder anderen Materialien hergestellt sind, gilt diese
Norm in Verbindung mit anderen einschlägigen Normen.

Biotechnologie - Criteres de performance des récipients - Partie 6: Colonnes de chromatographie

Domaine d'application
La présente Norme européenne spécifie les criteres de performance des colonnes de chromatographie utilisées dans les procédés biotechnologiques vis-a-vis des dangers potentiels que les microorganismes utilisés représentent pour l'opérateur et pour l'environnement.
La présente Norme européenne s'applique lorsqu'il est prévu que les colonnes de chromatographie impliquent l'utilisation de microorganismes dangereux ou potentiellement dangereux dans les procédés biotechnologiques ou lorsque l'exposition de l'opérateur ou de l'environnement a de tels microorganismes est limitée pour des raisons de sécurité.
Lorsque des parties importantes de la colonne de chromatographie sont fabriquées en verre ou en tout autre matériau, il convient d'utiliser la présente norme conjointement avec les autres normes appropriées.

Page 4EN 13311-6:2001IntroductionChromatography columns are containers filled with a stationary phase calledchromatography medium, used for a separation of components from the feed stream. Theyare used in a wide variety of biotechnological processes, and vary considerably in scale andfunction. Materials used for filling chromatography columns are chromatography media suchas dextrane, agarose, coated glass and polymer beads whereas chromatography columnwalls, top and bottom plates may be made of glass, stainle
