Maintaining product integrity during fluid transfer is critical in most pharmaceutical and biotechnology applications. Loss of fluid through migration into the tubing or adherence of fluid onto the tubing walls may create inconsistencies in final product results. TYGON® 2475 I.B. High-Purity Tubing is hydrophobic and resists the sorption (absorption/adsorption) of aqueous fluids. This reduction in sorption minimizes the risk of fluid alteration in single or repeat-use applications.
Until now, clear, flexible tubing was restricted from use in many applications due to concern of plasticizer extraction. TYGON® 2475 I.B. High-Purity Tubing is entirely free of any plasticizers. This unique tubing uses the latest in polymer technology to provide a clear (between braid) and flexible tubing choice for sensitive fluid transfer applications.
TYGON® 2475 I.B. tubing is virtually unaffected by chemical sanitizers and cleaners. As a result, it can be cleaned repeatedly without decreasing its service life. The non-wettable surface of the product facilitates complete drainage of fluid during the cleaning process. In addition, TYGON® 2475 I.B. tubing can be sterilized easily using conventional gamma radiation, and gas (ethylene oxide). TYGON® 2475 I.B. has a masterfile with the U.S Food and Drug Administration.
