DuPont to showcase TPE tubing at upcoming trade shows

The launch adds a range of extruded pharma tubing based on thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) technology, dedicated to fluid transport and single-use bioprocessing applications

DuPont has announced it will showcase its Liveo Pharma TPE tubing at three upcoming industry events: CBioPC in China, October 15 and 16; Interphex in USA, October 19 through 21; and CPhI in Italy, November 19 through 21.

The launch adds a range of extruded pharma tubing based on thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) technology, dedicated to fluid transport and single-use bioprocessing applications, under similar quality and performance principles as the Liveo Silicone Pharma Tubing product lines.

The TPE tubing has been developed to complement the Liveo pharma tubing and overmolded assembly (OMA) products made from silicone with a focus on product quality, purity and performance, DuPont says. The tubing is designed to enable improved heat welding to itself and to alternative offerings, high tensile strength and burst resistance before and after welding, minimal spallation after 24 hours of pumping, low extractables, and good chemical resistance, the company claims.

The product is targeted for use in biopharma processes to enable aseptic connection and disconnection of tubing without connectors and can be used in peristaltic pump applications.

It will be showcased at the DuPont booth at CBioPC, Interphex and CPhI. Detailed presentations on the product line also are scheduled.

“Adding a complementary Pharma TPE range to our Liveo Silicone Pharma Tubing and OMA lines, DuPont is committed to meeting customers’ requirements in terms of supply flexibility and a broader portfolio of solutions while maintaining our longstanding promises related to product, performance, quality and reliability,” said Jennifer Gemo, Global Marketing Manager, DuPont Healthcare. “We are pleased to introduce this new line of TPE tubing under the DuPont Liveo name for our biopharma processing customers.”
