Materials and parts for Life Science

Life science covers several branches of science, such as biology and medicine that deal with living organisms, often in relationship to drug development or analytics of living culture. Our materials can be utilised in machines to assist with reproductive science, pathology laboratories and even assisting with the understanding of genetic illness.

Typical parts include

  • Manifolds

  • Housings

  • Alignment segments

  • Seals

  • Nozzles

  • Snap rings

Product examples

The performance and service life of materials used in the healthcare sector are influenced by a variety of factors. When choosing the right material, factors such as surface quality requirements, contact with cleaning agents, disinfectants, dimensions and/or tolerances are essential.

Centrifuge applications

  • High strength and heat resistance

  • Low weight

  • High impact

Typical material

  • Polystone® P HG HI (black)

Manifold for cell cultivation and thermal expansion proper

  • Components require excellent chemical resistance due to multiple experiments

  • Good stability

Typical material

  • Polystone® P HG

Case Studies

Alignment segment for mass spectrometry

  • Excellent dimensional stability achieved through precision machining

  • Dissipative to heat

  • Good thermal properties

  • Good chemical resistance (components are cleaned in ISO Class 7 Clean room before use)

  • Cryogenically finished to achieve burr free components to avoid failure in critical electronics

    Reservoir clamp main body

    • Polystone® P natural was chosen due to the following properties:

    • High chemical resistance

    • Low leachable and extractable behaviour during process

    • High temperature and dimensional stability with tight tolerances

    • Sliding and wear properties with adjacent moving parts in natural color
