Improving upon their current biopharmaceutical offering of silicone tubing, TPE tubing and the various connectors used to assemble tubing sets, the company is now introducing single-use filling needles used for the final filling of pharma product. Helping companies reduce cleaning and sterilization costs, as well as limit the risk of cross contamination, the single-use needles can provide many advantages to the final filling processes. With the customizable format of sizes and rigid thermoplastic material choices, the company can work to provide a clear alternative to the current stainless steel needles used in many machines. Working with materials that are able to be gamma radiated and autoclavable, they are able to customize the inner and outer diameter per customer size requirement. The introduction of a single-use filling needle is a further step towards converting the biopharmaceutical production process completely to an efficient and safe disposable concept.
