Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Exhibits Innovative Solutions for Biopharma at Interphex

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 13, 2014) - Exhibiting for the first time at Interphex (Booth #3647), Trelleborg Sealing Solutions will showcase its expansive line of medical grade silicone tubing and hose. Additionally, its reusable and single use applications and customized solutions will demonstrate how Trelleborg meets the needs of a wide array of biotech processing functions including filtration, purification, bioprocess and fluid management.

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions supports bioprocessors in maintaining media integrity throughout the production cycle to ensure customers achieve a safe, high quality product. Its single-use systems help avoid costly sterility breaches that could waste entire batches or run the risk of contamination between lots. 

By being able to adhere to rigorous sterilization mandates and meet U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) Class VI standards, these tubing and hose solutions comply with stringent regulations without sacrificing efficiency. The single-use systems, such as used in bioreactors, decrease the risk of batch-to-batch contamination without the costly and time-intensive cleaning validation required for conventional, reusable equipment. 

Jerry Zawada, Life Sciences Segment Manager for Trelleborg Sealing Solutions in the Americas, says: "We collaborate with our customers to provide a TVO (Total Value of Ownership). For bio processors, this may translate to increased efficiency in the reliable handling of fluids, unparalleled flexibility, enhanced product safety and regulatory compliance while reducing costs for a laboratory or facility over time."

For applications involving extreme temperatures, steam and aggressive chemicals associated with Sterilization-in-Place (SIP) and Clean-in-Place (CIP) regimes, Trelleborg offers ultra-pure silicone hose and tubing, which can be standard, custom, peristaltic pump, color-stripe, braided reinforced, platinum and peroxide -- reusable fittings, extruded profiles, over-molded assemblies and assist devices for validation. Additionally, the liquid injection molding (LIM) capabilities from Trelleborg utilizes LSR (liquid silicone rubber) technology and cleanroom production facilities to deliver advanced engineered solutions.

Additional applications can range from custom silicone sheeting used in tangential flow filters, bearings for bioreactors to seals for pumps, filling equipment and vessel transfers, including a variety of diaphragms, gaskets and hygienic connectors, and disposable filters used in processing equipment.
