Masterflex pharmaceutical applications advantages

What makes us the top choice in peristaltic pumps and biologics technology?

  • Wide range of tubing materials. Chemical and compliance compatible options
  • Noncontaminating. Fluid media comes in contact with the inside of tubing only.
  • Easy cleanup. Quick-change tubing is the only step
  • Multichannel capability. One drive can use Up to 32 channels simultaneously on a single drive.
  • Sanitary connections on tubing. Quick tubing changes within sanitary systems.
  • Handles viscous materials. Can dispense various agars and suspensions.
  • Runs dry. Low-flow aspiration and air/vacuum pump modes available.
  • Modular design. Mix and match pump heads, drives, and tubing.
  • Custom engineered service. Designed with your whole lab in mind.

Masterflex in buffer media preparation

Essential to effective harvesting and purification are buffer systems. Masterflex offers equipment to help you maintain buffer purity while providing accurate measurements and dispersement.

A quality media preparation system must include:

  • Pumps
  • Fluid path components
  • Mixing equipment
  • Filtration
  • Process monitoring

Masterflex in cell culture transfer applications

The cell culture is the primary production environment for biopharmaceutical products. Whether you’re piloting research or going full scale-up, to ensure maximum yield of final product you must maintain optimally sterile conditions when it comes to cell growth via gentle treatment of the culture medium.

Our peristaltic pumps, along with matching sterilized tubing and connectors, are just what you need to maintain the purity of your cultures when transferring between production vessels and locations.

Masterflex in tangential flow filtration (TFF)

TFFs are used to separate and purify biomolecules, as well as to harvest cells. And working with the necessary pressures and flow rates to do so demands appropriate equipment.

Masterflex offers that equipment in the form of:

  • Peristaltic pumps
  • Fluid path tubing
  • Connectors
  • Filtration
  • Pressure monitors

These and other products ensure the purity of end products.
