Extractables Testing for Silicone & TPE Tubing Products
AdvantaPure now offers one of the most comprehensive portfolios of extractables testing for silicone and TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) tubing in the pharmaceutical and clean application industries. The company conducted the tests to address customer needs and to assure potential end users that its products meet or exceed stringent requirements. AdvantaPure’s tubing is used primarily for fluid flow and is available as single use molded manifold assemblies, bulk coil lengths and assembled with sanitary fittings. AdvantaPure tests its tubing and reinforced hose manufactured from Class VI, platinum-cured silicone, its platinum-cured liquid injection molded silicone and its AdvantaFlex® biopharmaceutical-grade TPE tubing. Products are tested after autoclave sterilization and gamma irradiation. Testing includes some of the fluids that AdvantaPure’s customers use in their manufacturing processes to better approximate actual conditions. Tests are conducted by outside laboratories and include those for endotoxins, particulate, pH and polarity.
