As the most recent addition to the One-Touch single-use system's portfolio, Meissner introduces its new polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) based FluoroFlex biocontainers. Meissner's FluoroFlex biocontainers are made of a new generation, multi-layer coextruded film that has been optimized for the pharmaceutical industry's most demanding requirements. FluoroFlex biocontainer applications stretch beyond that of traditional polyolefin-based biocontainers to open new opportunities for singleuse systems.

FluoroFlex biocontainers employ a PVDF product contact layer for its inherent purity. FluoroFlex film is free of additives, and, therefore it offers an extremely low leachables and extractables profile. It also offers thermal stability, chemical resistance and robustness that exceed the limits of traditional PE-based biocontainers.

The FluoroFlex biocontainer's exceptional EVOH gas barrier and its inherent purity help mitigate the risk of degradation of process solutions and API's stored and processed in the biocontainers. Additionally, elastomeric thermoplastic (TPU) strength layers in the patent-pending FluoroFlex film structure render it strong, yet highly flexible. FluoroFlex film is certified animal component free (ACF). The film is extruded, manufactured into biocontainers and packaged in ISO Class 7 cleanrooms.

Meissner manufactures advanced microfiltration products and One-Touch single-use systems used in the sterilization of drugs, reagents, and other critical pharmaceutical and biomanufacturing applications. Meissner provides comprehensive qualification and validation services, documentation, and application support to optimize filtration and single-use fluid management systems.
