Much of the interest in avoiding processing and manufacturing components containing ingredients derived from animals involves the safety of those ingredients as they relate to infectious diseases and contamination. It is felt that the surest way to remove any risk from the finished product, whether it be medication, food, or a component of another substance, is to completely eliminate the potential for animal ingredient contact. To accomplish this, many manufacturers insist that the components they use during processing and transfer be free of animal-derived ingredients.
AdvantaPure offers the following silicone tubing, reinforced silicone hose, molded silicone components, and pharmaceutical-grade TPE tubing that are animal component free:

|APST:||Unreinforced Silicone Tubing
|APSPG:||Silicone Pump Grade Tubing
Translucent, Platinum-Cured; Formulated For Peristaltic Pump Use
|APSH:||Braid-Reinforced Silicone Hose
Translucent, Platinum-Cured; Polyester Braid
|APSH-DB:||Double-Braided Silicone Hose
Platinum-Cured; Polyester Braid
|APSW:||4-Ply, Wire-Reinforced, Mandrel-Wrapped Silicone Hose
Platinum-Cured; Polyester Mesh Fabric; Smooth or Convoluted O.D.
We manufacture our molded products from animal component free ingredients — platinum-cured silicone or AdvantaFlex TPE; both meeting Class VI requirements. Molded products can be custom made to meet your specifications. Contact your AdvantaPure representative for more details.
By combining platinum-cured, Class VI silicone tubing or AdvantaFlex Biopharmaceutical grade TPE with molded fittings, stoppers and other components, a wide variety of assembly options are possible. Designs range from simple, single fitting connections to manifolds of complex configurations with varying lengths of tubing and several molded connections. The process used to join tubing and molded fittings permanently bonds the parts into one unit. Leaks and entrapment concerns, common with the use of barbed fittings, are eliminated.
BioClosure container closures are made from Class VI, platinum-cured silicone elastomer for the utmost in purity and consist of silicone bottle stoppers and sealing systems for bottles, laboratory equipment, and process and storage containers. They are biologically safe and work with receptacles of glass, metal, or plastic. Available with cored holes for tubing, dip tubes, or vents and with tubing installed. Standardized configurations for media bottles, flasks and carboys using AdvantaFlex Biopharmaceutical Grade TPE tubing and molded components are available.
Supplied as silicone fittings attached directly to silicone tubing or hose, the assemblies are well-suited for applications involving aseptic transfer, sterile processing, and other critical applications. The construction of Molded Silicone Assemblies allows the benefits of Class VI, platinum-cured silicone to remain constant throughout the assembly.
