There remain significant performance risks restricting the use of disposables in bioprocessing. These factors include bag breakage, which is particularly evident in cold temperature applications; concerns around E&L and material purity; and use of materials which are incompatible with the process itself. Improved plastics are required to meet existing and future process needs; fluoropolymers appear to be very promising to achieve these goals.
Fluoropolymers’ unmatched characteristics are inherent to their chemistry and make them suitable for any pharmaceutical or bioprocessing application. Characteristics of fluoropolymer materials include chemical inertness, purity, durability, and a wide temperature range; and the unlimited form factors position them to be the future of single-use technologies.
