Providing clean, innovative solutions that are trusted for the most challenging life science and technology applications.
Products and Services
Savillex Purillex® containers, including bottles, vials, jars, and labware, are the only fluoropolymer containers specifically designed for life science applications and are used for critical product storage and emerging cell therapy and regenerative medicine applications. Produced in ISO Class 7 cleanrooms to ensure cleanliness, Purillex containers are manufactured by injection and stretch blow molding, which produces high integrity seals, even under flash freeze conditions. Available in PFA, FEP, and ETFE, Class VI with full USP testing and documentation, all Purillex containers can be supplied sterilized, ready-to-use.
Purillex vials were originally developed for stability testing and sample lot archiving in life sciences applications. And because they are molded from the same grades of fluoropolymer resin used to manufacture Purillex bottles, they facilitate regulatory filing. Available in a range of sizes, both sterile (autoclaved) and non-sterile, they are also ideal for use in cryogenic applications such as cell banking.
Savillex offers a full range of integration services, including custom assembly and sterilization of single-use assemblies for upstream and downstream life sciences applications. Custom assemblies featuring Savillex containers and bottles, or bags from any other manufacturer, can be specified, along with tubing, filters, and connectors in custom-designed manifolds.
Few companies in the world have the know-how to injection mold fluoropolymers. High melt temperatures and corrosive gases generated during molding make fluoropolymers extremely challenging to mold. From resin selection and tool design to processing know how and manufacturing environment, Savillex understands fluoropolymer injection molding. We apply that know-how to every project, working with our customers to develop custom injection molded parts from PFA, FEP, ETFE, PVDF and more, no matter how challenging the application.
Stretch Blow Molding
Stretch blow molding (SBM) is used to produce containers from thermoplastics like PET. It has several advantages over traditional extrusion blow molding, such as superior sealing and cleanliness. However, commercially available SBM machines are unable to process fluoropolymers so Savillex designed and manufactured its own SBM machines and is the only company in the world to stretch blow mold fluoropolymers. Savillex offers SBM custom fluoropolymer containers in sizes up to 2 L.
For over 40 years, Savillex has molded fluoropolymer products to meet the most demanding applications across the widest range of industries. Our standard products are used in sample collection and archiving, sample preparation, and in sample introduction. Wherever an application requires extremes of corrosion resistance, temperature, or freedom from metal contamination, Savillex products can be found.
Produced using the exact same resin manufacturer and resin grades as our Purillex bottles, our Purillex jars also come with full manufacturing lot certification. Purillex jars are ideal for applications that require cleanliness and chemical stability.
Single-use technology (SUT) offers improved flexibility, reduced risk of contamination and lower costs.in biopharmaceutical manufacturing.
Fluoropolymers, and PFA in particular, are becoming more widely used in the chemical industry.
In recent years, ICP-MS has become the standard technique for trace metals analysis in the environmental testing industry.
Savillex products are used in many geochemistry labs worldwide, from sample digestion vials, storage bottles and cleaning systems to microcolumns and ICP sample introduction systems.
Semiconductor users push the limits of trace metals determination more than any other industry.
Fluoropolymers are widely used in the nuclear industry, where the need for low metals background and chemical inertness – particularly for HF – are critical.
Chemical inertness, wide temperature range and the best biocompatibility of all plastics, are properties of fluoropolymers that are finding applications in the medical and med device industries.
