Biopharmaceutical Formulation 2275
With an extremely low sorption rate, and
no plasticizer to alter fluids, Tygon®
High Purity Tubing maintains the
integrity of sensitive solutions. Clear and flexible, TYGON® 2275 High Purity Tubing
is ideally suited for use in many sensitive cell
culture and fermentation applications.
Maintaining fluid integrity during transfer is critical in numerous pharmaceutical and biotechnology applications. Loss of fluid through migration into the tubing walls can cause inconsistencies in final product results. Tygon® 2275 High Purity Tubing is hydrophobic and will resist the absorption/adsorption of aqueous fluids. This reduction in absorption/adsorption minimizes the risk of fluid alteration in single or repeat use applications.
Designed for Purity
Until now, clear, flexible tubing was restricted from use in many applications due to concern of plasticizer extraction. Tygon® 2275 High Purity Tubing is entirely free of any plasticizers. This unique tubing uses the latest in polymer technology to provide an entirely clear and flexible tubing choice for sensitive fluid transfer applications.
Smooth Inner Surface Improves Sanitation
Analysis has shown the inner surface of Tygon® 2275 High Purity Tubing to be smoother than other frequently specified flexible tubings. This smooth surface inhibits particulate entrapment onto the tubing wall and reduces the potential for bacterial growth and contamination. A smoother fluid path also improves fluid flow characteristics by reducing surface area and lowering adherence of fluid onto the tubing wall.
Reduced Disposal Concern
Tygon® 2275 High Purity Tubing is also unique when it comes to disposal. In today’s environment, incineration is commonly used to dispose of contaminated materials. Many tubings actually contribute to this problem by releasing hazardous byproducts, such as chlorine, when burned. Tygon® 2275 tubing only releases carbon dioxide and water when properly incinerated.
Superb Chemical Resistance
Tygon® 2275 High Purity Tubing is virtually unaffected by chemical sanitizers and cleaners. As a result, it can be cleaned repeatedly without decreasing its service life. The non-wettable surface of the product facilitates complete drainage of fluid during the cleaning process.
