For Glass, Metal or Plastic Containers

Southampton, Pa. — AdvantaPure announces the availability of its BioClosure container closures in biopharmaceutical grade thermoplastic elastomer (TPE). Previously offered only in platinum-cured silicone, the closures are used in pharmaceutical, biotech, laboratory and other clean applications.

AdvantaPure’s TPE material, AdvantaFlex®, provides an alternative to silicone. AdvantaFlex offers lower absorption and adsorption characteristics than silicone and does not contain silicone oils, substances that are undesirable in some biological processes. As tubing, AdvantaFlex provides weldability and helps eliminate the need for costly aseptic connectors. It’s also heat sealable and offers excellent life in peristaltic pumps. Additionally, certain styles of BioClosures, whether TPE or silicone, may be molded with tubing of the same material, creating a leak-proof assembly with one validated material contact surface.

BioClosures work with flexible container systems, laboratory bottles, and sampling and storage receptacles of glass, plastic or metal. Other key features include:

Animal derived ingredient free
Will withstand autoclaving and gamma irradiation
Biologically safe
Reduction of cross contamination risks, cleaning requirements, and validation time and costs when used as Single-Use components

BioClosures may be used with temperatures as low as -100°F and as high as 400°F (-73°C to 204°C), depending on material. They’re documented lot traceable, and validation and extractable test portfolios are available. Limited styles are currently offered in TPE, though others are becoming available as the line expands. Silicone styles include stoppers; caps; inserts for True Unions, GL45’s, 83B’s, 38-430’s and others; all available with or without tubing inserts. Silicone stoppers ranging in sizes between 2 and 12 are stocked; other items are custom manufactured.
