Ready-To-Use Innovations Eliminate BDS Hassles

When it comes to critical BDS (bulk drug substance) storage, PFA bottle and vials have become the gold standard. That’s because performance and purity aren’t a “nice-to-have” in BDS – they’re an expectation.

In critical applications – such as storing vaccines or blood products used in cutting-edge cell and gene therapies – you can’t risk using inferior materials or fragile form factors like bags.

Storing BDS product in Purillex® PFA bottles means less risk to your entire process and a greatly reduced chance of product loss.

Transitioning from PTFE to PFA

Helping customers move from PTFE to PFA In our last post, we looked at the advantages of moving from machined polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) to injection molded perfluoroalkoxy (PFA) material. While making the jump to PFA sounds good in principle (and looks good on paper), what about when it comes to helping

From PTFE to PFA – the business case

For low volume part production runs or prototyping, CNC-machining a custom part (or product) from polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) or tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) is typically the most convenient, cost-effective option. But what you might not know is that switching to injection-molded PFA can deliver several major, long-term benefits to your production process. First,

Benefits of fluoropolymers for bioprocessing

What are fluoropolymers and how are they used? We get quite a few questions about fluoropolymer plastics and how they’re used in bioprocessing. Where are they already being used? Which material is suited to what applications and what are the benefits of each? We’re going to dig a little deeper
