- Outlasts silicone tubing in peristaltic pumps
- Withstands repeated autoclaving
- Withstands repeated CIP and SIP cleaning and sterilization
- Documented Biocompatibility
- Multiple Manufacturing sites
PharMed® BPT tubing has been formulated to withstand peristaltic pumping action while providing the biocompatible fluid surface required in sensitive bioprocess applications
Its unique formulation provides superior flex life but also delivers superior performance throughout its service life. This reduces the risk of pump tubing failure. Increases process efficiency, reduces downtime, and increases production yields.
Simplifies Cleaning and Sterilization:
It is compatible with virtually all commercial cleaners and sanitizers and can be repeatedly autoclaved for up to five cycles without affecting the overall service life. PharMed BPT also withstands 50kGy of gamma radiation with minimal effect.
High Barrier Properties:
BPT tubing is ideal for protecting sensitive fluids in a variety of biopharmaceutical operations including media mixing, cell culture, harvest, and purification. PharMed BPT tubing has very high general chemical resistance and excellent acid, alkali, and oxidation resistance. Opaque to visible and UV light, PharMed BPT tubing protects light-sensitive fluids. PharMed BPT tubing also features an excellent surface finish and is compatible with most standard bioprocessing equipment. It is suitable for use in aseptic operations and is available in a variety of sizes and lengths.
