1. PREFACE
1.1 Introduction to the SEPAX system and its features The SEPAX cell processing system uses a rotating syringe technology that provides both separation through rotation of the syringe chamber (centrifugation) and component transfer through displacement of the syringe piston. The SEPAX system allows the automated processing of blood component in a functionally-closed and sterile environment. The separation protocol offers similar cell processing performance to the widely accepted manual separation procedure while ensuring a high level of reproducibility. The by-products of the blood separation (plasma and red-blood cells) are collected in standard blood bags while the output product (buffy coat or BC) is collected in a cryogenic (or freezing) storage bag. All bags are connected to the SEPAX single-use kits and form part of the sterile environment. The SEPAX system consists of: SEPAX Main Unit The S-100 main (processing) unit provides centrifugal and axial displacement drive to the chamber on the single-use separation kit, as well as drive to the directional valves. The main unit can be used with the AS-610 Traceability Kit that includes a bar code reader and thermal printer. It can also be used with the SepaxNet SN-100 system that is a powerful traceability tool that transfers procedure data presently stored in the Sepax and Coolmix devices to a centralized standard SQL database. Processing kits contain the blood in a sterile environment during the complete operation valves control the flow of blood components to the correct bag.

Single-use kit

1.2 Indication for use The SEPAX system is a blood cell processing system intended for laboratory use in exclusive combination with a compatible single-use separation kit supplied by Biosafe. The blood to be processed has been previously collected and transported to the laboratory by other means. The Sepax system allows the fast, automated and reproducible separation of blood in a closed and sterile environment. The SEPAX system is not intended for use in transfusion applications at bedside, where blood circulates directly between a patient and the SEPAX unit. Important note: Sepax Single-use Kits have been sterilized by Ethylene Oxide (EtO). Patients with hypersensitivity to EtO should not receive cord blood processed with these kits. Anaphylactic reactions can occur from hypersensitivity.

1.3 Manufacturer Biosafe SA is an ISO 9001 / ISO 13485 certified company, working under a number of national and regional directives. The SEPAX technology is protected by patents EUR 0912250 and US 6123655. Other patents are pending.

Field strengths from fixed transmitters, such as base stations for radio (cellular/cordless) telephones and land mobile radios, amateur radio, AM and FM radio broadcast and TV broadcast cannot be predicted theoretically with accuracy. To assess the electromagnetic environment due to fixed RF transmitters, an electromagnetic site survey should be considered. If the measured field strength in the location in which the Sepax] is used exceeds the applicable RF compliance level above, the Sepax should be observed to verify normal operation. If abnormal performance is observed, additional measures may be necessary, such as reorienting or relocating the Sepax.

Over the frequency range 150 kHz to 80 MHz, field strengths should be less than 3 V/m.

Recommended separation distances between portable and mobile RF communications equipment and the Sepax The Sepax is intended for use in an electromagnetic environment in which radiated RF disturbances are controlled. The customer or the user of the Sepax can help prevent electromagnetic interference by maintaining a minimum distance between portable and mobile RF communications equipment (transmitters) and the Sepax as recommended below, according to the maximum output power of the communications equipment Separation distance according to frequency of transmitter m Rated maximum 80 MHz to 800 MHz 800 MHz to 2,5 GHz 150 kHz to 80 MHz output of transmitter d = 1,2 P d = 1,2 P d = 2,3 P W 0,01 0,1 1 10 100 0,12 0,37 1,17 3,69 11,67 0,12 0,37 1,17 3,69 11,67 0,23 0,74 2,33 7,38 23,33

For transmitters rated at a maximum output power not listed above the recommended separation distance d in metres (m) can be estimated using the equation applicable to the frequency of the transmitter, where P is the maximum output power rating of the transmitter in watts (W) according to the transmitter manufacturer. NOTE 1 At 80 MHz and 800 MHz, the separation distance for the higher frequency range applies. NOTE 2 These guidelines may not apply in all situations.

CS-490.1 General Notes: The CS-490.1 is a separation kit conceived for GVR and PBSC protocols in cellular products processing. - The CS-490.1 kit can be connected to the cellular product input bag with a sterile connection device: to use a sterile connection device, the input bag must have at least 20cm of available tubing to be inserted in the sterile connection device with the tubing between the spike port and the bubble chamber in the input bag line (E in figure n.1). This operation must be done under LAMINAR FLOW. - If 20cm (8) of tubing is not available, the connection of the input bag will require use of the spike connector pre-installed on the CS-490.1 kit: this operation must be done under LAMINAR FLOW. STEP 1: Required material Prior to starting the procedure, ensure that the following material is within easy reach: Sepax S-100 main processing unit with AS-610 traceability kit Cellular product input bag (not supplied by Biosafe) Output Bag. (not supplied by Biosafe) A freezing bag or a transfer bag can be used. Be sure that the bag has enough capacity to contain your final product CS-490.1 single-use kit

STEP 3: CS-490.1 kit sterility verification Before opening the kit blister pack under laminar flow , ensure that the sterility indicator on the Tyvek cover is brown, indicating that the kit is sterile. If the sterility indicator is blue, the kit should not be used and the operator should inform Biosafe of the lot number in question. STEP 4: CS-490.1 kit integrity verification Under laminar flow spread the kit out in order to identify the tubing lines and components as in figure 1. Inspect visually the kit: if ruptures or kinks are detected or kit components are missing (clamps, caps, etc.), the kit should not be used and the operator should inform Biosafe of the lot number in question. STEP 5: Closing of the roller clamp Close ONLY the red roller clamp placed on the input line. Leave the other clamps open.

Figure 2 STEP 6: Output bag connection There are three ways to connect the output bag. The output bag will contain the final product, TNC concentrate also called buffy coat, at the end of the procedure. If you have a sterile connection device, you can use it to connect the output bag to the kit, the output bag needs a 10 cm tubing so to use with the SCD (see Instructions for Use supplied with the sterile connection device). The sterile connection should be made between the stopcock and the luer lock. This operation must be done under LAMINAR FLOW. If a sterile connection device is not available, you can use a spike. First connect the spike to output bag to the kit by using the luer lock (figure 3). The CS -490.1 kit can then be connected to the output bag using spike connection in the output bag line. This operation must be done under LAMINAR FLOW. Its possible to connect a bag directly on the luer-lock of the output line. In that case there is no sampling port available. This operation must be done under LAMINAR FLOW.

Remark: with a SCD or luer lock connection, you will loose the sampling port on the output line. Be sure that a sampling port on your output bag is available.

Figure 3 STEP 7: Input Bag connection There are two ways to connect the input bag. If you have a sterile connection device, you can use it to connect the input bag to the kit (see Instructions for Use supplied with the sterile connection device). The sterile connection should be made between the spike pre-installed spike connector and the bubble chamber in the input bag line, as shown in figure 4. This operation must be done under LAMINAR FLOW. If a sterile connection device is not available, the CS-490.1 kit can be connected to the input bag using the pre-installed spike connector in the input bag line (E in figure n.1). This operation must be done under LAMINAR FLOW conditions.

STEP 8: CS-490.1 kit installation on the Sepax For instructions on installation of the CS-490.1 kit on the Sepax S-100 main unit and launching of the automated separation procedure, refer to the Operators Manual (Section 4.6) provided with the Sepax S-100. The GVR protocol will perform automatically the priming of the lines. If you are using the GVR protocol, go directly to step 10. If you are using the PBSC protocol, the priming of the lines should be performed manually, in that case go to step 9. STEP 9: Manual Priming of the line (PBSC protocol only) The tubing line between the source bag and the white stopcock has to be primed manually with blood. The display shows Prime Bubble Chamber (Figure 6)

Figure 6 Squeeze the bubble chamber, without opening the roller clamp, and release it 2 -3 times u ntil the bubble chamber is half-filled with blood (Figure 7) then press Enter.

CS-530.0 General Notes: NOTE : THE INSTRUCTION FOR USE IS THE SAME FOR THE CS-530.0, CS-530.3 KITS

The CS-530.0 is a separation kit conceived for UCB -HES and UCB protocols in Umbilical Cord Blood processing. - The CS -530.0 kit can be connected to the UCB input bag with a sterile connection device: to use a sterile connection device, the UCB input bag must have at least 20cm of available tubing to be inserted in the sterile connection device with the tubing between the spike port and the bubble chamber in the UCB input bag line (E in figure n.1). This operation must be done under LAMINAR FLOW. - If 20cm (8) of tubing is not available, the connection of the UCB input bag will require use of the spike port pre-installed on the CS-530.0 kit: this operation must be done under LAMINAR FLOW.

STEP 1: Required material Prior to starting the procedure, ensure that the following material is within easy reach: Sepax S-100 main processing unit with AS-610 traceability kit UCB input bag (not supplied by Biosafe) If UCB-HES protocol is used, Hydroxy-Ethyl-Starch HES solution (HES 450-0.7-6%) corresponding to 20% of the UCB input volume (UCB + CPD anti-coagulant) CS-530.0 single-use kit Sterile connection device (not supplied by Biosafe) Sterile tubing sealer (not supplied by Biosafe) Tubing stripper (not supplied by Biosafe) All laboratory material related with the cell count operations

STEP 2: Sampling of UCB input bag Prior connection of the initial UCB bag to the CS-530.0 kit, follow your validated procedure to perform initial cell count. STEP 3: CS-530.0 kit sterility verification Before opening the kit blister pack, ensure that the sterility indicator on the Tyvek cover is brown, indicating that the kit is sterile. If the sterility indicator is blue, the kit should not be used and the operator should inform Biosafe of the lot number in question. STEP 4: CS-530.0 kit integrity verification Spread the kit out in order to identify the tubing lines and components as shown above. Inspect visually the kit: if ruptures or kinks are detected or kit components are missing (clamps, caps, etc.), the kit should not be used and the operator should inform Biosafe of the lot number in question.

STEP 5: CS-530.0 kit preparation Close ONLY the red roller clamp placed in the input UCB line and the two blue clamps on the DSMO extension line (J in figure n.1). Leave the other 2 white clamps open. STEP 6: If UCB-HES protocol is used: Hydroxy-Ethyl-Starch (HES) preparation If you are not using the UCB-HES protocol, go directly to step 8. In accordance with your internal validation procedure, prepare a Hydro-Ethyl-Starch (HES) solution (HES 450-0.7-6%) corresponding to 20% of the UCB input volume (UCB + CPD anticoagulant). For example, if the volume of the UCB input bag is 100ml including CPD, you should prepare 20ml of HES solution. Fill a syringe with the prepared HES, wait for the HES to reach room temperature. STEP 7: If UCB-HES protocol is used: HES injection in the UCB input bag Under LAMINAR FLOW conditions, the operator should insert the syringes needle in the dedicated port of the UCB input bag, and then manually agitate the UCB input bag with one hand while injecting the HES with the other hand: this ensures a homogenous HES dispersion in the bag. Inject the HES into the UCB input bag at a rate of approximately 2 seconds per ml.

STEP 8: UCB input bag connection Connect the UCB input bag to the CS-530.0 kit with a sterile connection device (see Instructions for Use supplied with the sterile connection device). The sterile connection should be made between the spike pre-installed spike connection and the bubble chamber in the UCB input bag line (E in figure n.1). If a sterile connection device is not available, the CS-530.0 kit can be connected to the UCB input bag using the pre-installed spike connection in the UCB input bag line (E in figure n.1) under LAMINAR FLOW conditions.

STEP 9: CS-530.0 kit installation and UCB or UCB-HES automated procedure For instructions on installation of the CS-530.0 kit on the Sepax S-100 main unit and launching of the automated separation procedure, refer to the Operators Manual (Section 4.6) provided with the Sepax S-100. Once the procedure is complete, the Sepax S-100 guides the operator through a manual stripping of the buffy-coat (BC) bag line.

STEP 10: Post -procedure actions At the end of the automated procedure, with the kit still installed on the S-100, the STRIP BC LINE ENTER message will appear on the S-100 display and the stopcock valves will be in the position shown in Fig. 2 and 3. Before pressing ENTER, manually squeeze the air from the BC bag until there is no air in the bag, as shown in Fig. 3. While holding the BC bag in this position with one hand, press the ENTER button on the S-100 with the other hand. The BC bag can then be released as the stopcock on the S-100 has been closed preventing return of the air.

Continue following the instructions on the S-100 display panel until instructed to DISMOUNT KIT.

STEP 11: Removal of the CS-530.0 kit from the Sepax S-100 Close the WHITE clamp above the Y connector and as CLOSE to the Y-connector as possible. Seal 3 times above the white clamp. Sealing 3 times and cutting out the line in the middle seal ensures safety in case of imperfect seal. After sealing, detach the BC bag line with its components as shown in Fig. 4.

STEP 12: Buffy-coat sampling Prior sample taking, the buffy-coat must be mixed in order to obtain a homogeneous and representative sample: press manually 30 times the small (5ml) section of the buffy-coat bag. To take the sample, under laminar flow use the dedicated syringe port placed on the Y connector for needle insertion and then follow your validated procedure.

STEP 13: DMSO preparation Preparation of the DMSO solution for cryopreservation must be performed following your validated procedure. The quantity of DMSO solution to be injected in the BC cryobag is 5ml or your validated volume. Note: If you inject DMSO by syringe pump, you will need to add an extra volume of 1.5 ml. (ex: If you need to add 5 ml, you put 5 + 1.5 ml = 6.0 ml in the syringe). This volume corresponds to the dead volume that remains in the tube. If adding DMSO by syringe pump, go to step 14A. If adding DMSO by gravity feed, go to step 14B.

STEP 14A: DMSO injection into the BC bag by automated Syringe pump Connect one end of the DMSO extension line to the luer-lock syringe containing the DMSO cryosolution and the other end to the luer-lock on the kit. Check that the blue clamp on the DMSO extension line is closed. Install cryobag on the Coolmix device, install the syringe in the syringe pump device and select the flow rate following the User Instructions of the syringe pump device. Inject DMSO with the syringe pump. If you are using the Coolmix automated cooling and mixing device, refer to the Coolmix Operator Manual, for display settings and automated procedure.

The Coolmix is not available on US market STEP 14B: DMSO injection into the BC bag by Gravity feed Insert the DMSO Vial Spike (AK-10) in the DMSO vial and place the spike/vial in the DMSO Vial Adapter. Please check that you are using the correct DMSO vial adapter. If you use the CS530.0 and the 7ml DMSO vial you need the DMSO vial adapter with the green spot. If you use the 8ml DMSO vial, use the DMSO vial adapter with the red spot. See fig 5.

CS-600.1 General Notes: The CS-600. 1 is a separation kit conceived for PBSC Washing and UCB Washing protocols to perform routine wash of thawed PBSC or cord blood products. Two different working procedures are described. One requires use of a Sterile Connection Device (SCD) to perform sterile connections outside the laminar flow. The other describes when no SCD is available and connections must be performed under controlled environment (laminar flow). It is strongly recommended to use the SCD to minimize the time between thawing and the beginning of the washing procedure. Note for PBSC Washing: the input bag volume capacity should be at least the double of the initial volume of the product to be washed. The UCB Washing and the PBSC Washing are using the same kit, the CS-600.1. But the protocols are different. Thus we describe the handling of the kit for each protocol in 2 different parts. Please refer to the protocol that you are using.

SEPAX cell separation kit CS-600.1 with PBSC Washing

Washing several bag - recommendations The PBSC Washing protocol allows the washing of 1 or 2 bags per washing cycle. Its possible to have 2 washing cycles per procedure. It means that with the same kit, its possible to wash from 1 to 4 bags. If you wash several bags, be sure to wash bags containing product from the same patient. If you perform a 2 washing cycle procedure, its easier to have a sterile connection device to connect the bags to the kit. If you dont have a SCD, you will have to dismount the kit from the machine and connect the bag(s) for the second cycle under sterile conditions. STEP 1: Required material Prior to starting the procedure, ensure that the following material is within easy reach: Sepax S-100 main processing unit with AS-610 traceability kit One or several input bags with product from the same patient (not supplied by Biosafe) One or two output bags (not supplied by Biosafe) 2 CS-600.1 single-use kit, 1 for backup washing solution (not supplied by Biosafe), please check the chapter 4E to estimate the volume needed Sterile connection device recommended (not supplied by Biosafe) Tubing sealer (not supplied by Biosafe) Tubing stripper (not supplied by Biosafe) Orbital Shaker (not supplied by Biosafe) All laboratory material related with the cell count operations Material related to the thawing of the product

STEP 2: Sepax parameter setting In order to reduce the time between the thawing of the input product and the beginning of the washing procedure, we recommend setting the parameters of the protocol ready. Please check the chapter 4E of the operator manual for more details about parameter selection. Select the PBSC washing protocol on the main menu and check the parameters. NOTE: The dilution ratio should be set to 1.0. Do not change the dilution ration parameter without validation.

Fig. 2 It is recommended to set the output volume to at least 100ml. The input volume represents the volume processed by cycle. If 2 bags are processed in parallel (during the same cycle), enter the sum of their volume.

STEP 3: CS-600.1 kit sterility verification Before opening the kit blister pack under laminar flow , ensure that the sterility indicator on the Tyvek cover is brown, indicating that the kit is sterile. If the sterility indicator is blue, the kit should not be used and the operator should inform Biosafe of the lot number in question. STEP 4: CS-600.1 kit integrity verification Under laminar flow spread the kit out in order to identify the tubing lines and components as in figure 1. Inspect visually the kit: if ruptures or kinks are detected or kit components are missing (clamps, caps, etc.), the kit should not be used and the operator should inform Biosafe of the lot number in question. STEP 5: CS-600.1 kit preparation under laminar flow Under laminar flow , close ALL the clamps of the single-use kit, the clamps on the extension lines included. That protocol can wash from 1 to 4 bags of PBSC product in two sequential cycles. Always wash bags containing the product from the same patient.

Usually when performing 2 washing cycles, 1 or 2 output bags will be used. If you do only one cycle, you will use one output bag. Connect the output bag(s) to the CS-600.1 kit (spike of line G in Fig. 1). You can connect up to two output bags as there are two spikes available. If you connect only one output bag, seal and detach the unused spike. Connect the washing solution bag to the washing solution spike (spike of line E in Fig. 1, see Fig. 3). Use 2.5% albumin in isotonic solution. Please refer to the Operators Manual chapter 4E provided with the Sepax S-100 to see the quantity of washing solution needed.

DO NOT THAW the unit before it is necessary. You can connect 1 or 2 input bags that you will process in one washing cycle. The CS-600.1 kit is provided with 2 different input bag lines (H and I on fig. 1). Choose the one corresponding to your input bag. Take the mono-spike line (I) if you wash one bag per cycle, shown on fig. 4. Take the double-spike line (H) if you wash two bags per cycle, shown on fig. 5.

STEP 6A: Connection of the Input Bag if SCD is available Do that step only if a sterile connection device is available. After having selected the input bag line that you will use, go directly to step 7. DO NOT THAW THE PRODUCT at this stage. Leave the extension lines (H and I) under the laminar flow. You will use them later. STEP 6B: Connection of the Input Bag if SCD is not available Do that step only if a sterile connection device is not available. Prior connection of the initial bag to the CS-600.1 kit, follow your validated procedure to thaw and then perform initial cell count of the PBSC product. Connect the chosen input bag(s) line to the input bag with the spike and then connect the line to the kit with the luer-lock connection. This operation must be done under LAMINAR FLOW. If you plan to do only one washing cycle, seal and detach the unused tube (Fig. 6).

CS-900.1 General Notes: The CS-900.1 is a separation kit conceived for DGBS protocol to perform routine separation of blood products (blood, blood components or bone marrow) with density gradient technique. - The CS-900.1 kit can be connected to the input bag with a sterile connection device: to use a sterile connection device, the input bag must have at least 20cm of available tubing to be inserted in the sterile connection device with the tubing between the spike port and the bubble chamber in the input bag line (D in Fig.1). This operation must be done under LAMINAR FLOW. - If 20cm (8) of tubing is not available, the connection of the input bag will require use of the spike port pre-installed on the CS-900.1 kit: this operation must be done under LAMINAR FLOW. STEP 1: Required material Prior to starting the procedure, ensure that the following material is within easy reach: Sepax S-100 main processing unit with AS-610 traceability kit Input bag with product (not supplied by Biosafe) One output bag with 60-100ml volume capacity (not supplied by Biosafe) CS-900.1 single-use kit 60-130ml density gradient solution, 100ml recommended (not supplied by Biosafe) 500ml or 1000ml washing solution (not supplied by Biosafe) 50ml cell re-suspension media if needed (not supplied by Biosafe) Sterile connection device if needed (not supplied by Biosafe) Tubing sealer (not supplied by Biosafe) Tubing stripper (not supplied by Biosafe) All laboratory material related with the cell count operations

STEP 2: Sampling of input product Prior connection of the initial bag to the CS-900.1 kit, follow your validated procedure to perform initial cell count. STEP 3: CS-900.1 kit sterility verification Before opening the kit blister pack under laminar flow, ensure that the sterility indicator on the Tyvek cover is brown, indicating that the kit is sterile. If the sterility indicator is blue, the kit should not be used and the operator should inform Biosafe of the lot number in question. STEP 4: CS-900.1 kit integrity verification Under laminar flow spread the kit out in order to identify the tubing lines and components as shown above.

General Notes: The CS-540.0 is a functionally-closed separation kit when used with a sterile connection device for initial sampling and connection of UCB input bag To use a sterile connection device the UCB input bag must have at least 20cm of available tubing, as shown in Fig. 2. Use of luer-lock syringes are recommended as they are safer. If 20cm (8) of tubing is not available, the initial sampling and connection of the UCB input bag will require use of a standard syringe and the spike port pre-installed on the CS-540.0 kit, respectively - both operations must be done under LAMINAR FLOW Fig. 2

WARNING:

ONLY REMOVE SPIKE CAP UNDER LAMINAR FLOW IF KIT IS BEING CONNECTED USING A STERILE CONNECTION DEVICE THEN LEAVE SPIKE CAP IN PLACE.

STEP 4: CS-540.0 kit integrity verification Remove the single-use kit from the blister and lay it out flat to check that there are no kinks or other visible damage.

STEP 5: CS-540.0 kit preparation Close all BLUE clamps (total of 5 including separate DMSO extension line) DO NOT CLOSE WHITE CLAMPS Please close the blue clamp of the entry line in the middle of the line (between the Y connector and the bubble chamber, to avoid kink formation).

STEP 6: If you use UCB-HES protocol, Hydroxy-Ethyl-Starch (HES) preparation In accordance with your internal validation procedure, prepare a Hydro-Ethyl-Starch (HES) solution (HES 450-0.7-6%) corresponding to 20% of the UCB input volume (UCB + CPD anticoagulant). For example, if the volume of the UCB input bag is 100ml including CPD, you should prepare 20ml of HES solution. Fill a luer-lock syringe with the prepared HES, wait for the HES to reach room temperature and avoid having air in the syringe (it may block the HES filter of the kit).

STEP 7: UCB input bag connection

Connect the UCB input bag to the CS-540.0 kit with a sterile connection device (see Instructions for Use supplied with the sterile connection device).

Fig. 8

If a sterile connection device is not available, the CS-540.0 kit can be connected to the UCB input bag using the pre-installed spike connection (UCB input bag line A) under LAMINAR FLOW conditions. With SCD: DO NOT REMOVE THE CAP OF THE SPIKE and connect the input bag to the kit at the location shown in Fig. 8. Without SCD: Under laminar flow, remove the cap of the spike and connect the spike to the input bag. NOTE: FOR THE CS-540.0 KIT TO BE CONSIDERED FUNCTIONALLY CLOSED THE CONNECTION TO THE UCB INPUT BAG MUST BE PERFORMED WITH A STERILE CONNECTION DEVICE AND NOT THE SPIKE CONNECTION.

STEP 8: If you use UCB-HES protocol, HES injection

After preparation of the luer-lock syringe with the required volume of HES (refer to STEP 6), connect the HES syringe to the filter (there is no cap on the HES filter) and then open ONLY the HES clamp immediately downstream of the HES filter.

Fig. 9 Note: If by error, the blue clamp nearest to the HES filter is not closed prior to connecting the UCB input bag, the cord blood may flow to the HES filter. The subsequent impregnation of the HES filter does not affect sterility in any way. Inject the HES with one hand while mixing the bag thoroughly with the other - injection flow rate should be approximately 0.5ml per second. Close the HES filter clamp as close as possible to the Y connector and then using a tubing sealer, seal off the HES filter upstream of the HES clamp (with syringe attached) and remove syringe/filter for disposal - the HES syringe/filter must be removed to avoid any tubing kinks. Note: The HES between the connector and the HES filter can not be recovered. This dead volume corresponds to approximately 1 ml. STEP 8: If you use UCB protocol, HES filter removal

Close the HES filter clamp as close as possible to the Y connector and then using a tubing sealer, seal off the HES filter upstream of the HES clamp and remove filter for disposal. . STEP 9: CS-540.0 kit installation and UCB-HES automated procedure Select UCB-HES protocol on the Sepax and choose/confirm parameters. Install CS-540.0 kit on the Sepax and position the Buffy-Coat (BC) cryobag as shown in Fig.10. This position minimizes the risk of generation of kinks in the output BC line.

Close the BLUE clamp of the sampling chamber line (see red arrow) and seal 3 times; sealing 3 times and cutting out the line in the middle seal ensures safety in case of imperfect seal. Detach the sampling chamber from the buffy-coat bag line - see Fig. 22a. The sample should then be tested according to your validated sampling procedure. Note The CS-540.0 sampling chambers are designed to connect to luer-lock syringes under LAMINAR FLOW see Fig. 22b. STEP 14: DMSO preparation Preparation of the DMSO solution for cryopreservation must be performed following your validated procedure. The quantity of DMSO solution to be injected in the BC cryobag is 5ml or your validated volume. You need a syringe pump to inject the DMSO Note: You need to add an extra volume of 1.5 ml. (ex: If you need to add 5ml, you put 5 + 1.5ml = 6.5ml in the syringe). This volume corresponds to the dead volume that remains in the DMSO filter and the tube. STEP 15: DMSO injection into the BC bag by automated Syringe pump Connect one end of the DMSO extension line to the luer-lock syringe containing the DMSO cryosolution and the other end to the DMSO filter on the kit (Fig. 22c)

4. THE PROTOCOLS
4.1 General description (see flowchart on the following page) A typical separation procedure starts by filling the separation chamber. The product from the input (source) bag is aspirated into the chamber by a downward movement of the piston. The filling phase ends when the optical sensor detects that the supply tube is empty or when the chamber is full. At the beginning of the separation process the chamber starts rotating along its axis. The centrifugation lasts for a few minutes and results in separation of the product components. Finally, in the extraction and collection phase, the separated product components are distributed into the respective collection bags. The procedure is complete when the piston has reached the top of the chamber. The product in the output bag (BC bag for UCB procedures) is then ready for further processing.

4.13.4 To enable the traceability option The SEPAX S-100 can be used with 2 different traceability systems. The first option is the a Traceability Kit AS-610 that allows both procedure and protocol traceability and an option to allow the operator to modify a limited number of parameters The printer supplied as part of the Traceability Kit can print protocol and summary procedure data and full protocol and procedure data can be downloaded to the PCMCIA card integrated into the SEPAX S-100. The components of the Traceability Kit are described in Chapter 5. The second traceability is the SepaxNet SN-100 system. SepaxNet is a powerful traceability tool that transfers procedure data presently stored in the Sepax and Coolmix devices to a centralized standard SQL database. Compatible with all new and existing devices, SepaxNet can network up to 20 devices using the latest communication technologies. Data transmission is either by Ethernet cable or WiFi wireless with ISBT 128 compliance. All procedure data is simultaneously sent and stored in the PC database, which are both included in the package. The components of the SepaxNet system are described in Chapter 5. If you are using the SepaxNet SN-100 system, please refer to its Operator Manual, the OM-0921.

Enabling of the traceability option requires a password. Biosafe provides traceability option passwords to approved operators.

The protocols

OM 04 07

Once the traceability option has been enabled, the Manual ID Input option can also be activated allowing operators of that unit to add additional traceability parameters or skip existing parameters. Enabling of the traceability parameter and the decision to activate Manual ID Input should only be entrusted to administrator operators who fully understand the end-users internal tracability procedure. Following confirmation of the traceability options, any subsequent change requires the password to be entered again. General rules on traceability Ensure that the traceability option password remains confidential. To ensure high levels of traceability only prepare one procedure at a time do not place barcodes, worksheets or input product collection bags corresponding to different procedures in the same work area. 4.13.4.1 Traceability setup step-by-step Message on the display TIME HH:MM:SS DATE DD/MM/YYYY LANGUAGE AUTO PRINT DATA a TRACEABILITY SETUP Action

USER INSTRUCTIONS: Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Volume Reduction Protocol General description
The "PBSC - Volume Reduction" protocol is designed for volume reduction by plasma depletion of peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) preparations after leukapheresis. The hematopoietic stem cells can then be further processed for freezing and storage until required for human transplantation. The "PBSC - Volume Reduction" protocol allows for the processing of samples from 80-600 ml using multiple cycles if required and aims for maximal volume reduction (typically in the order of 70 - 80%) with minimal cell loss. The final volume is a function of the cell concentration and the volume of the initial sample, and can be selected between 20 -150 ml. At the end of the program, the separation chamber is rinsed with plasma in order to maximize cell recovery.

Final volume parameter


The final volume represents the volume that shall be collected as the final product in the cryobag. This value depends on the initial cell number, i.e. the volume and the cell concentration of the initial sample, and the final cell concentration after processing. The recommended value of this parameter can be found in the table on page 4A-5. The value can be chosen between 20 and 150 ml; the default value is 50 ml. Using a value above the recommended value will produce a less concentrated final product. If the real WBC volume happens to be larger than the chosen value, the machine will automatically collect the whole WBC product, modifying the final volume.

USER INSTRUCTIONS : UCB-HES PROTOCOL General description and performance The HES protocol is designed for routine processing of umbilical cord blood (UCB) to isolate the buffy-coat fraction enriched in haematopoietic stem cells and requires the addition of HES (hydroxyethyl starch). The protocol allows processing of initial CB unit volumes above 35ml and below 320ml (anti-coagulant included, after HES addition) with optimal performance with units of between 80ml and 180ml. The volume reduction of UCB is performed in 25 to 35 min and results in a predetermined volume between 20 and 50 ml. Initial product inclusion criteria Optimal results can be expected with UCB units meeting the criteria listed below: - UCB units should be less than 96 hours old - no visible major clots in UCB unit to be processed - UCB unit at room temperature before connection to the single-use kit and processing Step 1: HES addition Refer to chapter 3 to find the instructions for the kit you are using. Step 2: Connecting the cord blood input bag to the single-use kit Refer to Section 4.5 of this document. If the kit you are using doesnt have a cryobag, you should connect one in sterile condition. Close the clamp on the DMSO injection line and between the cryogenic and transfer bag (if applicable). Step 3: Parameter modification and trace ID configuration Configure traceability ID Refer to Section 4.13.4.2 to select which ID to use.

Parameter Modification Certain non-critical parameters of the procedure can be modified by the operator prior to the KIT TEST. To modify parameters select CHANGE PARAMETERS . Use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to select the parameter to change, then press ENTER to edit the value(s). The first character will be displayed between square brackets. Use "UP" and "DOWN" arrow keys to set the value then press "ENTER" to move the cursor horizontally to the next character. To leave a value unchanged, press "ENTER".

RBC extraction flag parameter The operator can choose whether the red blood cells (RBC) should be returned to the UCB input bag or remain in the separation chamber at the end of the procedure. With the RBC extraction flag set to 1 the RBCs are transferred to the UCB input bag. If the flag is set to 0, the RBCs will remain in the chamber in the chamber. Small Volume Factor parameter In the parameters list you can set the Small Volume Factor between 0.0 and 1.0, the default value is 0.8. That factor triggers the small volume strategy. When the total volume of cells is smaller than SmallVolumeFactor * FinalVolume, the SmallVolume strategy occurs. The default value of 0.8 for the SmallVolumeFactor gives the best theoretical results; it is advised not to change it. The influence of that parameter on the performances of the procedure is described in the next paragraph.

Small Volume Strategy The Small Volume (SV) strategy consists of the extraction of the whole cellular part of the initial unit (after concentration) to the BC bag and the subsequent rinsing of the separation chamber. That implies that the cellular part of the initial product has to be lower that the final volume. The SV parameter defines the minimum amount of plasma used for the rinsing of the chamber. The following chart indicates the theoretical maximum cell recovery and final HCT for a given cellular volume (in the initial unit). Please note that there are 4 ml that stay into the separation chamber, so the volume represented is up to 24 ml (for a standard extracted volume of 20 ml). The chart shows that by increasing the value of the parameter, the range for the small volume strategy is increased but the haematocrit of the final product is also increasing and is higher than the physiological range.

Theoretical performances for the Small Volume strategy

Note: The small volume strategy is applied when the total volume of the cells (white + red) is smaller than the product of the SmallVolumeFactor and the Output Volume. The plasma is extracted and to the initial input bag and all the volume remaining in the chamber (buffy-coat/red cell mix) is sent to the buffy-coat bag. There will be no red cells returned to the initial input bag and the plasma will remain in the initial input bag. A small amount of plasma will be used to rinse the chamber and ensure that a maximum number of cells are collected in the BC bag.

When that strategy is applied, the plasma is extracted to the input bag where a small quantity of red cells remains. It means its not possible to get a pure plasma sample. To avoid adoption of the Small Volume strategy set the SmallVolumeFactor to 0.1.

Step 4: Kit installation For the kit installation procedure, refer to chapter 4.6 and 4.7. After the kit installation, select in the menu the entry START PROCEDURE and press ENTER. Step 5: Enter the traceability IDs Refer to Section 4.13.4.

It will test the kit and its proper installation on the device. In case of error, the device will beep and the operator should check the message on the display so to fix the error. At the end of the test, the protocol waits 12 seconds before beginning the priming. That delay allows the device to stabilize the pressure in the chamber.

Step 8: Automated priming To ensure optimum evacuation of the air from the system, automated priming is an integrated part of the protocol. The system will prime the bubble chamber, the line and the separation chamber automatically before starting the separation process. It will also empty the air from the BC Bag Approximately 35 ml of the input product will be drawn into the separation chamber and then returned to the UCB input bag.

Step 9: Automated procedure

Avoid touching the SEPAX S-100 during processing. Do not place any other equipment near the SEPAX S-100 that may cause vibration this will affect the quality of separation Avoid moving bag, tubes, stopcocks and covers during the procedure as this may cause an error and require the procedure to be re-started. Note: The purge mode allows an aborted procedure to be restarted and the cord blood unit reprocessed one time with minimal loss of cells. After the automated priming, the SEPAX S-100 display will indicate the processing step that is being performed at any given time. The processing steps for the UCB HES protocol are listed below: 1) Automated priming 2) Chamber filling 3) Sedimentation 4) Plasma extraction 5) Buffy coat extraction 1 6) RBC extraction 1 7) Chamber/Plasma filling 1 8) Sedimentation 9) Plasma extraction1 1 10) Buffy coat extraction 2 11) RBC extraction
1

Depending on the total input volume these steps may be eliminated. This will not affect the efficacy of the separation procedure. 2 If RBC extraction flag is set to 1

If the input volume (volume of CB in the collection bag) is greater than 220ml (the volume of the separation chamber), 2 cycles are performed. During the 1st cycle the product remaining in the input bag may begin to sediment and so the operator will be required to mix the input bag contents before the 2nd cycle can begin. At the end of the 1st cycle, an alarm will sound requiring the operator to press validate (by pressing ENTER) that the input bag has been mixed to a homogeneous state. The 2nd cycle of the protocol will then begin and separation process will be completed with no further operator intervention. At the end of the procedure, the SEPAX S-100 will sound an alarm a number of times to indicate the end of the procedure.

When the Reduced Kit flag and the RBC extraction flag are both set to 1, then the plasma and the RBCs are extracted in the initial bag.

Sensitivity That protocol is equipped with a smart BC detection feature which sensitivity can be set do different levels. The higher the sensitivity is, the higher the TNC recovery (mainly GRC) but also resulting in a higher final HCT. This parameter also permits to use this protocol to process other products, like bone marrow. This parameter can be set to: 1: Low (lower HCT) 2: Medium (default) 3: High (higher HCT)

Note: The small volume strategy is applied when the total volume of the cells (white + red) is smaller than the product of the SmallVolumeFactor and the Output Volume. The plasma is extracted and to the initial input bag and all the volume remaining in the chamber (buffy-coat/red cell mix) is sent to the buffy-coat bag. There will be no red cells returned to the initial input bag and the plasma will remain in the initial input bag. A small amount of plasma will be used to rinse the chamber and ensure that a maximum number of cells are collected in the BC bag.

The small volume strategy is triggered automatically without any user intervention. When that strategy is applied, the plasma is extracted to the input bag where a small quantity of red cells remains. It means its not possible to get a pure plasma sample. To avoid adoption of the Small Volume strategy set the SmallVolumeFactor to 0.1.

Step 7: Automated priming To ensure optimum evacuation of the air from the system, automated priming is an integrated part of the protocol. The system will prime the bubble chamber, the line and the separation chamber automatically before starting the separation process. It will also empty the air from the BC Bag Approximately 35 ml of the input product will be drawn into the separation chamber and then returned to the UCB input bag.

Step 8: Automated procedure

Avoid touching the SEPAX S-100 during processing. Do not place any other equipment near the SEPAX S-100 that may cause vibration this will affect the quality of separation Avoid moving bag, tubes, stopcocks and covers during the procedure as this may cause an error and require the procedure to be re-started. Note: The purge mode allows an aborted procedure to be restarted and the cord blood unit reprocessed one time with minimal loss of cells. After the automated priming, the SEPAX S-100 display will indicate the processing step that is being performed at any given time. The processing steps for the UCB protocol are listed below: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.

Setting the final volume The final volume represents the volume that shall be collected as the final product in the collection vial. The value can be chosen between 7.00 and 20.00ml, the default value is 8.50 ml. The protocol was designed to collect 8.5 ml final product. Increasing too much the final volume could lead to an increment of product haematocrit that might put at risk the cells during freezing procedure. Setting the output tubing volume The output tubing volume represents the volume contained into the tubing between the stopcock and the collection vial/bag. This volume is a rejected volume and by default is adapted to Biosafes kit CS-470.x. Please call Biosafe to know the adapted parameter to enter in this field in the case you are using a different kit. The value can be chosen between 1.0 and 9.9 ml, the default value is 1.3 ml. Setting the smart BC detection parameter This protocol is equipped of a special detection function that automatically increases the buffy-coat volume in case of a low output haematocrit (and NC recovery). This increment is done by step of 4 ml starting from the selected output volume. The sensitivity of the optical detection regulates the start/end extraction of the buffycoat. Sensitivity can be chosen between 3 pre-regulated values. Set this parameter to 0 to deactivate this function or 1 to 3 to activate it with following options: 1. permissive 2. medium 3. strict The permissive level will admit a lower output haematocrit than the strict level. In the other hand, the output volume will be increased more often using the strict level setting than using the permissive level setting. Users can set one of these 3 levels according to their specific needs. By default this function is activated in permissive mode (1).

Exit from protocol

At the end of the procedure you need to separate the collection vial from the rest of the kit in order to continue with the freezing procedure. To do that, close all clamps and seal 3 times the collection vial tubing near the vial. Cut the tubing on the central sealing. The product still contained in the tubing has been taken into account for the volume calculation. It is not necessary to purge or strip the tube. After sealing, dismount the rest of the kit as follows: 1) Take down the bag and place it on the operating table. 2) Remove the filter that connects to the pressure sensor (to the left of the optical sensor). 3) Lift the stopcock valve from the rotary pin. 4) Take the line out of the optical sensor. 5) Open the covers. 6) Lift the chamber out of the centrifuge pit. 7) Place the kit in a bin suitable for blood products.

Mix well the product in the collection vial and take a sample for quality control under aseptic conditions (laminar flow) following your validated procedure. Always following your validated procedure and under aseptic conditions, add slowly DMSO into the collection vial. Make sure that the product temperature is maintained (for example place vial in ice). After the cryoprotectant addition, aspirate the product from the vial and place it in the freezing vial(s). Freeze samples in the shortest time possible (sample with DMSO should not wait more than 10 minutes before being frozen).

The quality of the collected buffy coat must be controlled prior to freezing and transplantation, following a validated procedure. If blood spillage or leaking occurs, the product should be discarded. The collection vial included into the Biosafe kit CS-470.x is NOT adapted to be frozen. NEVER use it for cell conservation. To follow the other steps for the end of the procedure and to exit protocol, refer to chapter 4.7.

PERIPHERAL BLOOD STEM CELL POST THAWING WASHING PROTOCOL (PBSC WASHING)

PBSC Washing

OM 4E 06

USER INSTRUCTIONS: Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Washing Protocol Post Thawing

General description
The cell washing protocol is designed for the routine wash of thawed PBSC products. It performs a supernatant extraction and re-suspension of the cells with the help of a washing solution (also called buffer). It is based on the manual washing method proposed by Pablo Rubinstein et al. (Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 1995 Oct 24; 92(22):10119-22). Two different working procedures are described. The first one requires the use of a Sterile Connection Device (SCD) to perform sterile connections outside the laminar flow. The second describes what happens when no SCD is available and connections must be performed under controlled environment (laminar flow). It is strongly recommended to use procedure with the SCD to minimize the time between thawing and the beginning of the washing procedure.
Workflow with SCD (recommended) BEGIN Workflow without SCD 1. Prepare washing solution 2. Prepare kit 3. Parameters modification 5. Kit installation 6. Automated kit test 7. Automated kit priming 8. Thawing of the unit* 9. Automated washing 3. Parameters check Another bag? 10. Dismount kit Second washing cycle END 3. Parameters check * The thawing of the unit is performed when the kit is already primed (if a SCD is used) or before kit installation (if the initial bag is connected under the laminar flow) 4. Thawing of the unit* 4. Thawing of the unit*

The protocol accepts initial volumes of up to 440 ml and provides a final volume between 50 ml and 200 ml. (adjustable by the user). The kit designed for this protocol allows the connection of up to 2 input and 2 output bags. The bags will be processed sequentially (one after the other). Before beginning a washing procedure, be sure that all material is available. Also be ready for a possible manual recovery procedure of the unit. DO NOT thaw the unit before it is necessary (refer to the chart on this page).ONLY users trained on this protocol by BIOSAFE or by an official trainer are authorized to perform the washing procedure.

Step 1: Preparing washing solution bags


To prepare the washing solution, some details about the process need to be known: number of bags to process (maximum 2 per kit), volume in each bag, desired final volume, dilution ratio and number of output bags (maximum 2 per kit). Clients head of process has the responsibility for the choice of the washing solution and its validation. The following graph shows the volume of washing solution per bag needed to perform a washing procedure. Simply chose the input volume on the horizontal scale and intercept the line of the corresponding output volume and application (standard or high wash). For example to wash a 150 ml input bag and obtain 100 ml output product after a high wash cycle, it is necessary to prepare 500 ml of washing solution (1 liter for 2 bags).

This graph is applicable for the most common cases. The dilution factor used is 1 and it indicates the ratio between the initial volume and the washing solution volume used for the first dilution. When 1 is selected the volume used for the first dilution will be the same as the input volume. Alternatively, the following formulas can be used (washing solution volume per bag): Vwashing _ solution = Vinput Dilution + Voutput + 30ml for standard wash Vwashing _ solution = Vinput Dilution + Voutput + 250ml for high wash
PBSC Washing OM 4E 06 4E - 3

Where: Vwashing_solution: Vinput: Dilution: Voutput: washing solution volume required total product volume to be washed dilution factor desired final product volume

All these values are intended per bag. Multiply by the number of bags washed with the same kit.

Step 2: Connecting washing solution bags to the Biosafe kit


Unwrap the Biosafe kit in aseptic conditions (under laminar flux). Close all clamps (including the two-connection tubes). Connect the washing solution bag to the spike on the upper right line. Connect the number of output bags you will need (minimum one and generally the same number as the input bags; ensure the bags have sufficient capacity). Open the waste line clamp (lower right) and only one output line clamp (with an empty output bag connected - lower left). Seal tubes that are not used. Inspect the installed Sepax kit for any ruptures. Be sure that there are no kinks, twists or flattened areas in the tubes that might obstruct the flow. In this case kit should be discarded and returned to Biosafe.

Keep protection covers on unused spikes and luer lock connectors. Close clamps on lines not in use.

Step 3: Parameter modification and trace ID configuration


This is a very important step for the successful processing of a unit. There are three parameters to check in order to ensure the correct procedure: 1) Input initial volume. Total volume to be washed. Selectable between 50 and 440 ml. 2) Dilution ratio. Indicates the ratio between initial volume and dilution volume. It is not recommended to change this parameter. Selectable between 0.5 and 1.5. DO NOT change the dilution ratio parameter without validating the new value. 3) Final volume. Biosafe recommends using at least 100 ml (selectable between 50 and 200 ml). To change/check parameters select CHANGE PARAMETERS in the first menu that appears after having selected a protocol.

Step 4: Thawing - When a SCD is not available


This section is applicable only if working without a SCD. When SCD is used, go directly to step 5. When it is not possible to use a SCD to perform a sterile connection outside the laminar flow, you should connect the input bag to the kit under aseptic conditions, which means before installing the kit on the machine. In this case, complete steps 1, 2 and 3 and prepare all the material you need to continue the procedure. Thaw the unit to be washed following your internal validated thawing procedure. For each unit use an overbag, to avoid any product loss in case of units rupture during thawing or handling.

Connect, under aseptic conditions (laminar flow), one of the connection tubes delivered with the kit to the thawed unit. Connect the bag to the main part of the kit using the luer lock connectors and continue immediately with point 5. Skip step 8.

When you decide to wash another bag with the same kit, it is advisable to seal and disconnect the first output bag. Once selected the WASH ANOTHER BAG option, you have to confirm/change volume parameters to process the second bag (refer to step 3 for more details). The procedure will then restart from step 6.

When SCD is not available


This section is applicable only to the procedure without SCD. When a SCD is used, go back directly to step 7. When it is not possible to use a SCD to perform a sterile connection outside the laminar flow, the second bag should be connected under aseptic conditions. The kit should therefore be dismounted from the Sepax and returned to the laminar flow. Thaw and connect the second bag as in step 4. Re-install the kit on the machine and immediately continue with step 6. Skip step 7.

Step 1: Preparing washing solution bags


To prepare the washing solution, you need to know the volume of the bag and the desired final volume The unit head of processing is responsible for choosing and validating the washing solution. The following graph helps to choose the volume per bag of washing solution. Simply choose the input volume on the horizontal scale and intercept the line of the corresponding output volume and application (standard or high wash). For example to wash a 40 ml input bag and obtain 100 ml output product after a standard wash cycle, it is necessary to prepare 300 ml of washing solution.
Washing solution volume required [ml]
650 600 550 High w ash 500 450 400 350 300 250 200 150 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 70 75 80 85 90 95 100 Input volume [ml] Standard w ash Vout = 150ml Vout = 100m l Vout = 50ml Vout = 150ml Vout = 100m l Vout = 50ml

This graph is applicable for the most common cases. Alternatively, the following formulas can be used (washing solution volume per bag): Vwashingsolution = 240ml Vinput + Voutput for standard wash Vwashingsolution = 460ml Vinput + Voutput for high wash Where: Vwashingsolution: washing solution volume required Vinput: total product volume to wash Voutput: desired final product volume

Step 2: Preparing the Biosafe CS-600.1 kit


Unwrap the Biosafe CS-600.1 kit in aseptic conditions (under laminar flux). Close all clamps (including the connection extensions). Connect the washing solution bag to the spike on the upper/right line (red stopcock valve). Connect the output bag to one of the spikes on the output line (left/lower, blue stopcock valve ensure the bag has sufficient capacitance). Seal the unused output line and only one input line (upper/right, blue stopcock valve). Open the waste line clamp (lower/right) and the output line clamp (lower/left). Keep protections on unused spikes and luer lock connectors. Close clamps on lines not in use. Inspect the installed Sepax kit for any ruptures. Be sure that there are no kinks, twists or flattened areas in the tubing that might obstruct the flow. In this case, the kit should be discarded and returned to Biosafe.

Step 3: Parameter modification and trace ID configuration


This is a very important step for the successful procedure of a unit. There are three parameters to check in order to ensure the correct procedure: 1) Input initial volume. Total volume to wash. Selectable between 10 and 100 ml. 2) Dilution ratio. Indicates the ratio between initial volume and dilution volume. It is not recommended to change this parameter. Selectable between 0.5 and 2. DO NOT change the dilution ratio parameter without validating the new value.

3) Final volume. Biosafe recommends using at least 75 ml (selectable between 50 and 150 ml) to optimize the cell recovery.

The washing protocol for the UCB stem cells goes through the following phases: 1) Primary dilution (typically 1volume per 1volume) into initial bag and chamber (slow extraction). 2) Osmolarity balancing time (about 5). The product is mixed into chamber and input bag 3) Chamber filling (product and washing solution) 4) First sedimentation and bag rinsing (2 cycles). 5) Supernatant product extraction. 6) In case of an HIGH WASH process: chamber refilling with washing solution and back to point D. 7) Cell resuspension. 8) Cell extraction. 9) Chamber rinsing (0 3 cycles). The quality of the cell washed must be controlled prior to the transplantation following your validated procedure. Transplant the output product using a transfusion filter. If blood spillage or leakage occurs during the process, the head of hematology department should decide of the final use of the product.

Setting the final volume


Proportional: The final volume corresponds to a predetermined percentage of the total volume remaining in the processing chamber after the plasma fraction has been extracted. The value can be chosen between 1 and 100%, the default value is 80%. The final volume represents the volume that shall be collected as the final product in the cryobag. The value can be chosen between 1 and 400 ml, the default value is 30 ml. The wanted plasma volume parameter is the amount of pure plasma contained into the final volume (useful to decrease the final HCT). This volume is part of the volume set with the fixed volume (e.g. a fixed volume of 30 ml and a wanted plasma vol of 5 ml correspond to 25 ml BC plus 5 ml of pure plasma).

Fixed: Wanted plasma vol:

Setting the initial volume


Enter here the volume that should be processed with the Sepax. The number of cycles is limited to 4, so the input volume should not exceed 880ml (in best conditions).

B A To prepare the kit following operations needs to be done: Connection of the output bag (B) Connection of the washing solution bag (C) Connection of the re-suspension media bag (D) Filling of the Ficoll/Waste bag with the ficoll (F) Connection of the initial product bag (A) Close all clamps prior to perform the connections. Connection of the output bag Connect a 150 ml transfer bag to the output spike (B). Connection of the washing solution bag Prepare and connect the bag containing the washing solution to the washing solution spike (C). Use 2.5% albumin in isotonic solution. As general rule use a 500 ml isotonic solution bag for a two cycles washing process and a 1000 ml bag for a three cycles washing procedure (albumin is added to this volume). For more detailed volumes, refer to the table below.

Connection of the re-suspension media bag When a different media than the washing solution is used to re-suspends the cells at the end of the procedure, prepare and connect a bag containing 50 ml of re-suspension media to the re-suspension media spike (D). Set the Pause switch bag parameter to 1 if needed. Seal this line when unused. Filling the Ficoll/waste bag with ficoll The waste bag is used at the beginning of the procedure as Ficoll bag. Inject the needed amount of Ficoll through the female luer lock connector (E) located near the Ficoll/waste bag (F). Always use 100 ml of ficoll.

The chosen Ficoll is very important for a successful processing. Please ask Biosafe or its representative to be sure to use the best available solution.

Connection of the initial product bag Connect the initial product bag to the input spike (A).

Step 2: Parameter modification


That is a very important step for a successful process of a unit. There are four parameters to check in order to assure a correct procedure: Input product volume: Indicates the approximate volume to the machine. Selectable from 30ml to 120ml, default 50ml. It will be used to compute rotation speed in order to have a constant G force on the Ficoll / Product interface. Ficoll volume. Ficoll used for the procedure. Selectable from 50ml to 150ml, default 90ml. The Ficoll bag will contain 10 ml more than that value (see Filling the Ficoll/waste bag with Ficoll in Step1) Washing cycles. Number of washing cycles performed in the washing process. Selectable from 2 to 3, default 2. The change of this parameter will affect the needed washing solution volume (see Connection of the washing solution bag in Step1) Pause switch bag. Permits to insert a pause into the protocol to switch the washing solution and the re-suspension media bags. Selectable 0 (no pause) or 1 (pause), default 0.

Annex 1: Input product guidelines


Introduction
The Density Gradient protocol can be used with input products that may or may not have been pre-processed (this is no the case for the UCB/UCB-HES cord blood protocols where the input product is always in its collected state).Pre-processed products can vary significantly and may affect the performance, or even the successful outcome, of the Density Gradient procedure. To assist the end-user in preparing for a successful procedure, Biosafe has prepared the following guidelines for using the Density Gradient protocol. The important parameters are: Haematocrit Nucleated Cell concentration Viscosity of the product Clots (any type of cell aggregate) Presence of tissue debris (bone, etc.) Product transparency Age of the product

Haematocrit and nucleated cells concentration


To obtain a reasonable sedimentation the amount of supernatant in the input product should be sufficient. The Density Gradient protocol has been developed to process product possessing certain physiological characteristics and, in general, the following criteria should be considered a general rule: Haematocrit should not exceed 55 % Total cell volume (TNC and RBC) should not exceed 60 % of the initial volume Initial TNC count should not exceed 100*106 / ml

If any one these criterion is not met, an adjustment will be required (usually a dilution will be sufficient).

Product viscosity
The product viscosity may affect: The chamber filling / emptying process cell sedimentation If the input product has a high viscosity, the product should be adapted accordingly (again, a dilution should be sufficient).

Clots, cell aggregates and tissue debris


Clots, cell aggregates and tissue debris may adversely affect the: sedimentation process optical detection pressure detection fluid flow (especially around the stopcock valves)

Such product should be filtered before the use of the Density Gradient protocol. The filter should then be rinsed to prevent cell losses.

Density Gradient based separation

OM 4H 05

4H - 9

Product transparency
A product that is too transparent (low concentration of TNC and RBC) may lead to premature empty bag detection only one part of the input product being processed. . If such a product requires processing, please contact Biosafe support (support@biosafe.ch) for instructions on how to by-pass the optical sensor.

Age of the unit


An old input product (collection time > 72 hrs or a product that has been inappropriately stored may be not produce representative cell recovery and cell depletion results (particularly for GRC depletion).

Processing of units larger than 120 ml


The maximum input volume for the density gradient protocol is 120 ml. It is possible to process a higher input volume unit, by performing a pre-process volume reduction. Biosafe recommends the use of the Sepax Generic Volume Reduction (GVR) protocol to perform this step. The following conditions should be observed: The output product should meet all other guidelines indicated in this document The pre-process volume reduction should be a validated process Only the Sepax GVR protocol is recommended for pre-process volume reduction Generic Volume Reduction (GVR) protocol parameters For a GVR volume-reduced product to be compatible with the Density Gradient protocol, the GVR protocol parameters should be set as follows: Volume reduction ratio (Vinitial / Vfinal) should not exceed 6 The Wanted Plasma volume should be set to 35 40% of the final volume (for convenience the fixed volume strategy may be used). This is done to balance the final haematocrit. The Reprocessed BC and Reprocessed plasma parameters should be set to a minimum of 20 ml If in doubt, do not hesitate to contact BIOSAFE support (support@biosafe.ch or +41 22 365 27 27) prior to commencing a procedure.

In the main menu select the program PURGE MODE. Follow the instructions. The content of the chamber will be put back into the input product bag. 3. If product is in the output bag, remove the stopcock ramp from the device, and by turning the stopcock purge manually the entire output bag by putting all the products back to the input bag. 4. Dilute the product in the input bag with the washing product used for the density gradient separation procedure to a volume up to 300 ml. Check that the capacity of the initial bag is big enough. 5. Close all clamps and turn the stopcock into the initial TTT position. 6. In the main menu, select the program PBSC WASHING. 7. In the protocol menu select CHANGE PARAMETERS. 8. Set FINAL VOLUME to the volume of the input product for the aborted gradient separation procedure (i.e. 50ml.) 9. Set INITIAL VOLUME to 150 ml and DILUTION to 1.0 10. Check that the washing solution remaining in the washing bag is enough; it means the set final volume + 220 ml (i.e. 50 + 220 = 270ml). 11. Install the kit as usually with the stopcocks in TTT position. Do not select START KIT TEST, but select with the arrow down button the entry RESUME AFTER DILUTION and press enter. 12. The kit is tested. It will be necessary to put a clean line into the optical line sensor instead of the usual line that is filled with product. Its a way to cheat the kit test. Check that you put the right line back into the line captor after the kit test. 13. Open all clamps. Attention: the message OPEN INPUT CLAMPS doesnt appear. 14. Select HIGH WASH which corresponds to two washing cycles like in the density gradient procedure. 15. Wait until the end of the procedure. The washed product is in the output bag. 16. Begin a new density gradient separation procedure with a new CS-900.1 singleuse kit by using the washed product as input product.

5.3 Pneumatic kit Biosafe supplies a pneumatic kit with the S100 that can be used for manual extraction of the separation chamber contents by applying pressure under the piston. This manual procedure can replace the Purge Mode in case of complete failure of the SEPAX S-100 or in the event of a power loss. The manual procedure is performed as follows: 1. Before removing the single-use kit from the SEPAX S-100, close all clamps. 2. Remove the single-use separation kit. 3. Clip the pneumatic kit chuck (see arrow on the picture) into the base of the separation chamber. 4. Manually position the stopcocks on the single-use kit to ensure a path from the separation chamber to the initial unit input bag. 5. Gently press the syringe to transfer the separation chamber contents back to the initial unit input bag. 6. Once the separation chamber piston has reached the top of the chamber, all the clamps should be closed and the stop-cocks returned to the (TTT) position).

- When the printer is not being used, the printer data port on the rear panel of the SEPAX S-100 should be protected with the supplied cover. - If the printer power cable is not connected to the printer, the supplied protective cover should be placed over the printer power cable socket. - Barcode reader, printer and associated power cables should be cleaned using an anti-static cloth and an antibacterial solution to disinfect the surfaces (such as Meliseptol). Additional equipment connected to medical electrical equipment must comply with the respective IEC or ISO standards (e.g. IEC 60950 for data processing equipment). Furthermore all configurations shall comply with the requirements for medical electrical systems (see IEC 606011-1 or clause 16 of the 3Ed. of IEC 60601-1, respectively). Anybody connecting additional equipment to medical electrical equipment configures a medical system and is therefore responsible that the system complies with the requirements for medical electrical systems. Attention is drawn to the fact that local laws take priority over the above mentioned requirements. If in doubt, consult your local representative or the technical service department.

5.5 Tubing Stripper The tubing stripper is NOT supplied by Biosafe but is required to complete the procedure. Any stripper designed for standard tubing lines (4.1mm outer diameter) will be suitable for stripping the different tubing line. It is highly recommended to use the stripper at the end of the procedure to reduce cell loss.
