Efficient movement and storage of liquids is critical to modern biotechnology processes. The deployment of single-use containers for this task has become ubiquitous in recent years because they reduce risk while driving down costs in comparison with traditional stainless steel equipment

ATMI’s integrity 2-d and 3-d Bioprocess vessel (BPV) products have been developed to meet the demand for cost-effective, scalable, single-use liquid storage containers that are compatible with ATMI’s market-leading range of single-use mixing and bioreactor technologies.

At the heart of ATMI’s Integrity systems and products is integrity TK8 film, a state-of-the-art multilayer gas-barrier polymer laminate. The product-contacting layer of TK8 film is blow extruded in-house by ATMI under cleanroom conditions using medical-grade ultralow-density polyethylene resin, then laminated to create a gas barrier film of exceptional cleanliness, strength, and clarity that is animal-derived component free (ADCF) and complies fully with USP Class VI requirements.

TK8 film is standard across the ATMI integrity product lines, providing users with easy scalability and simplified cross-platform validation.
