June 4, 2020

The company worked with Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories to conduct independent extractables testing that involved eight solvents tested over a 21-day exposure time frame.

Freudenberg Medical, a contract manufacturer of medical device components and pharmaceutical tubing, announced it has completed testing on its PharmaFocus Premium silicone tubing used in biopharma fluid processing and single-use applications.

The company worked with Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories to conduct independent extractables testing that involved eight solvents tested over a 21-day exposure time frame, a May 18, 2020 company press release said. The tubing also underwent added physical, chemical, and biological tests.

“We understand that identifying extractable and leachable substances is extremely important for our biopharma customers,” said Jeff Mohror, vice-president and general manager of Freudenberg Medical Carpinteria, in the press release. “When specifying tubing into a process, this data will save customers valuable time and cost when bringing a new process into production.”
