Fluoropolymer containers are quickly becoming the most reliable choice for an increasing number of life sciences applications due to their wide temperature range, universal chemical compatibility, low adhesion, and low extractables. They also provide unmatched durability and are virtually unbreakable during use (even at blast freeze temperatures) – greatly reducing the likelihood of human error.

Utilizing an innovative manufacturing approach, Savillex has produced the Purillex® line of BottlesJars, and Vials - the first fluoropolymer containers explicitly manufactured for the life sciences. Made from virgin resin, our Purillex containers have the lowest levels of particulates and organic and inorganic extractables in the industry. Purillex Bottles are manufactured in an ISO Class 7 cleanroom by injection molding and a proprietary stretch blow molding process.

Purillex containers are designed to fit seamlessly into most life sciences workflows. Our customers rely on them for the efficient sampling, processing, transfer, shipment, and storage of their critical materials across a broad spectrum of applications, including the following:

  • Tissue Engineering
  • Regenerative Medicine
  • Cell and Gene Therapy
  • Vaccine Production
  • Bulk Drug Storage
  • Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing
  • Formulation Stability Testing

All sizes of Purillex Bottles, Jars, and Vials are available sterilized, and double-bagged to ensure sterility is maintained prior to use. Sterilization processes are validated to a sterility assurance level (SAL) of 10-6 which is the industry standard for use in aseptic applications. PFA bottles have also been tested to ensure compatibility with dry heat sterilization processes to 250°C for up to a two-hour exposure time.

Our ongoing commitment to research and development has led to an exciting recent addition to our portfolio of life sciences products. Released in early 2024, our Purillex line of PETG Square Media Bottles was created to address an even wider variety of needs in research, drug development, and biopharmaceutical production. Lightweight, durable, and shatter-resistant, they also provide excellent gas-barrier properties, making them ideal for the preparation of culture media and other pH-sensitive liquids.

Operating from our new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility featuring an ISO Class 7 cleanroom, innovation will continue to be an imperative as we aim to develop more beneficial products for the life sciences industry. Contact us for more information.
