Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9848765A1] The invention relates to a sterile connector for linking a pipe comprised of collapsible hoses with a tank containing a medicinal liquid. Said sterile connector presents a coupler (2) provided with a channel-type cavity which is closed by a pierce-through membrane designed as a coupler covering foil. The foil is welded on the coupler inner side. The welding joint can be made using a bag-like foil. A protective cap (5) intended as a stop element obturates the channel-type cavity of the coupler. The inventive connector prevents the tank contents from glueing, is easy to handle and can be produced in a large quantity at a low cost.
