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 and transfer 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™ off-the-shelf tubing product line, which combines all benefits in one product – its weldable, sealable, translucent, and can be used in peristaltic pumping applications," states Rudi Gall, General Manager & Director Corporate Marketing 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
