A new formulation of TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) tubing has been developed for fluid transfer in the biopharmaceutical industry: AdvantaFlex.

AdvantaFlex addresses the need for a flexible, translucent, sterilizable, moldable, heat sealable, and weldable biopharmaceutical tubing for fluid processing. AdvantaFlex maintains its physical properties following sterilization processes, resists kinking, remains translucent for visible product flow, and does not become gummy. Additionally, the unique properties of AdvantaFlex help it outperform similar tubing in peristaltic pumps.

Key Features
  • Excellent life in peristaltic pumps
  • Sterile weldable and heat sealable
  • Now available as leak - proof molded connections and tubing
  • Made from FDA-approved ingredients
  • Excellent low absorption and adsorption characteristics as compared to silicone
  • Meets various ISO and USP standards, including Class VI
  • Meets European Pharmacopoeia 3.2.2.1 standards
  • Low permeability as compared to silicone
  • Certified free of silicone oils and animal-derived ingredients
  • Smooth interior for excellent flow and performance
  • Sterilizable by gamma radiation or autoclave
  • Translucent for fluid flow visibility
  • Excellent tubing component for single-use systems
  • Sizes from 1/8" (0.125) through 1" (1.000) I.D.
  • Custom lengths, sizes, and packaging available
  • Sealed in polybags at manufacture for cleanliness
  • Documented quality control; lot traceable with identification on polybags
  • Single resin validation - no need to graft to other tubing materials like silicone for media filling and sampling applications that involves peristaltic pumps; helps eliminate operator errors
  • Chemical Characterization of Materials per ISO - "Extractables" test portfolio available
