New Delhi: Freudenberg Medical, a manufacturer of medical and pharmaceutical devices, components and tubing, has launched HelixFlex™, a high purity thermoplastic elastomer TPE tubing designed for use in biopharmaceutical fluid transfer applications.
This is an expanded product offering from Freudenberg, adding to its existing pharma product portfolio of silicone tubing and components for bioprocessing, drugs and vaccine manufacturing, filling and sampling, peristaltic pumping, lab and medical device applications.
The product was launched at the ongoing CPhI & PMEC exhibition in Greater Noida.
TPE tubing is ideal for pharmaceutical bioprocessing applications because it can be welded to existing tubing lines, and heat-sealed to allow for easy, fast, and safe fluid transport in biopharma processes.  TPE tubing from Freudenberg also offers many different sterilization options including autoclave, gamma irradiation, x-ray, and e-beam.  Additionally, TPE tubing is a more environmentally friendly option than silicone and can be recycled.
“Silicone has always been the gold standard for biopharma applications, but with silicone material in short supply over the past few years Freudenberg wanted to offer global customers another single-use tubing alternative,” said David Schwass, Director Sales & Marketing Biopharm at Freudenberg Medical.
“We are proud to launch our new HelixFlex™ tubing to customers in India.HelixFlex™ combines all benefits in one product  ̶  its weldable, sealable, translucent, and can be used in peristaltic pumping applications,” states Rudi Gall, Vice President Business Development SC EMEA & Global Pharma at Freudenberg Medical.  “With HelixFlex™ we complement our silicone-based HelixMark® and PharmaFocus® Premium tubing lines and therefore continue our journey of providing additional products and technologies to our biopharmaceutical customers as a one-stop-shop.”
HelixFlex™ is produced in a certified cleanroom and material certification and lot traceability is included in every package.  Learn more about HelixFlex™ TPE Tubing
