DPTE® Beta Containers

Safely transfer material from one containment area to another

Stainless steel or plastic DPTE® Beta Containers allow for safe transfer into and out of a barrier system in various life science applications. The Getinge DPTE® system is based on the interaction of an Alpha part with a Beta part – each fitted with a door, a lock and a sealing function. 


Transfer of sterile or toxic products in and out of barrier systems is one of the most critical aspects of pharmaceutical production, and is necessary to protect both operator and product. Containers are used to bring in, remove, or transfer material from one environment to another, without breaking containment. Getinge produces a range of standard PE and stainless steel containers, and also offers customized containers with specific baskets, drawers, and accessories.

Getinge DPTE® Solutions

Compatibility with DPTE® Alpha

Minimize the risk of microbial contamination associated with operator contact during the manufacturing process with DPTE® Beta Containers. These containers are compatible with any DPTE® Alpha flange of the same diameter. The Alpha and Beta parts fit together with a patented, leak-tight locking method, meaning the integrity of the transfer operation cannot be broken. 

Effective steam or gamma sterilization

DPTE® Containers can be safely sterilized using either steam or gamma sterilization. The reusable PE/HDPE containers and the material within the container can be sterilized using gamma irradiation or bio-decontaminated with H2O2 to ensure a safe material transfer process.

The reusable stainless steel containers are engineered for steam sterilization processes. An integrated hydrophobic sterile filter allows for steam to enter the container, maintaining sterile conditions after the sterilization process. Stainless steel containers may also be biodecontaminated with H2O2, if necessary.


Getinge offers standard and customized accessories to optimize your sterile transfer and ensure safe operations.

  • Transport and docking trolleys for DPTE® Beta Containers
  • Stainless steel baskets for transferring filling pump needles, plugs, Petri dishes, etc. inside the container.
  • Protective rings for container seals to protect seals during sterilization.
  • Lifting pressure cover
  • Door-opening key
  • Polyethylene cover accessory

Sterile transfer

Safely transfer materials around your facility without breaking containment and sterility. With DPTE® Containers, you can safely separate the process from the environment to support the basic principle of isolation or barrier technology in injectable drug production.

Stopper and closure processing

Closures, rubber stoppers and plungers are a vital part of the drug administration system. Getinge equipment washes and sterilizes these stoppers and closures, and keeps them clean, sterile and dry.

The DPTE® system provides a proven method of maintaining sterility when transferring sterile components into a filling line.

Sterility testing

Be certain about your sterile products. Contamination of samples during sterility testing can be a costly problem, leading to false positive test results. Getinge’s sterility testing isolators and patented DPTE® sterile transfer systems provide a safe and sterile self-contained environment for the most critical steps of the testing process.


Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) and Highly Potent Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (HPAPIs) may be highly toxic substances contained in a significant proportion of today’s drugs. Getinge isolation technology and cleaning systems helps protect laboratory staff and the environment, ensuring the safe handling of APIs and HPAPIs.

Aseptic filling

Protect operators and reduce the risk of product contamination with DPTE® Containers. Modern filling lines increasingly incorporate full-barrier isolators or restricted-access barrier systems (RABS) around the filling equipment. Getinge supports you with solutions for a safe and contamination-free aseptic filling process.
