We attended Interphex in NYC as our second live show of the 2021 season. Interphex remains the “who’s who” in the bioprocessing world, with over 500 exhibitors and thousands of attendees. Although a noticeably quieter show than in years past, it was still full of energy. Many exhibitors we spoke with stated that the attendees they met were die-hard, had clear objectives and focused goals, and were determined to meet with their key suppliers. Similarly, we learned that most exhibitors and attendees plan to attend in the spring of 2022 despite this year’s show postponement.
Can your project benefit from multi-cavity or family tooling? Injection molding fluoropolymers can be a very challenging process due to the nature of the polymers themselves. For one – fluoropolymers have extremely high melting points and produce corrosive HF gas when molten. High shrink rates also add to the challenges.
By Eric Isberg, VP of Life Sciences Sights and Sounds It was great to be back at a live show and face-to-face with our customers again. The ISPE Boston Product Show, which represents an area of the US with over 60% of the active bioprocess projects, proved once again that
Fluoropolymer bottles: a durable and safe solution for shipping BDS Shipping bulk drug substance (BDS) or other critical products and process solutions requires very durable packaging. Common single-use technologies are bag-based, which require additional protection because they’re vulnerable to material loss and contamination due to punctures, cracking, seam separation and
Fluoropolymer pressure vessels provide clean chemical transport A wide range of aggressive chemicals are used in wafer processing. And since these chemicals are in direct contact with the wafer surface, they need to be as free from trace metal contamination as possible. While conventional pumps are still used for some
Fluoropolymers provide purity to semiconductor manufacturers In their never-ending quest to improve quality, semiconductor manufacturers have been pushing their materials suppliers to minimize – and even eliminate – any type of chemical or material contamination. So, if the idea is to reduce contamination at all costs, are ultra-pure fluoropolymer plastics
Purity key to lipid storage and safety Lipids, typically in the form of lipid nanoparticles (LNPs), are a key component in the delivery systems for messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines. This includes vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna currently being used in the fight against COVID-19. Lipids and other biological materials, including
