CRL Transfer Systems provide safe and reliable transfer of hazardous material or sterile components into or out of isolation without breaking containment. CRL offers a complete range of solutions for use in both Nuclear and Life Science applications, from stainless steel containers and Waste Drum Transfer Systems to Single-Use Beta Bags.
Transfer System Components
The CRL Transfer System consists of two main components, the Alpha assembly and the Beta assembly, each with a door, seal, and interlock function. The Alpha assembly is typically mounted in an isolator or glovebox wall, and the Beta assembly is mobile and used to transfer the materials. When the two assemblies are mated, materials can be rapidly transferred into and out of an environment without breaking containment.
The interlock system on the Alpha Port ensures a safe, reliable Alpha-Beta connection. A Beta assembly must be attached and properly connected to open the Alpha door. Likewise, the Beta can’t be disconnected until the Alpha door is properly closed.

CRL Alpha Ports are available in various sizes and configurations. Ports are typically constructed of stainless steel and have optional door materials available to provide flexibility for various application needs.
CRL offers a wide variety of standard Beta solutions to transfer products, equipment or waste into and out of isolators or gloveboxes without breaking containment. Our goal is to provide safe and efficient transfer solutions for every application need.
Single-Use Beta Bags
The CRL Single-Use Beta Bag is a safe, efficient, and cost-effective solution for aseptic production processes. This single-use system provides contamination-free transfer of sterile components into isolation or removal of toxic components out of isolation.
Waste Drum Transfer System
CRL’s Waste Drum Transfer System (WDTS) was developed as a safer method of transferring hazardous waste from gloveboxes and hot cells, utilizing the proven technology and containment of the Rapid Transfer Port (RTP).
