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

Application 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

  • Requirements: High strength and heat resistance
  • Low weight
  • High impact
  • Typical material: Polystone® P HG HI (black)

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

Alignment segment for mass spectrometry

  • Through precise manufacturing, we guarantee excellent dimensional accuracy that fulfils the demanding requirements.
  • The heat-dissipating properties of the material support efficient heat dissipation, which improves the stability of the system.
  • Equipped with excellent thermal properties, the segment ensures reliable performance even under extreme conditions.
  • Thanks to its good chemical resistance, the components are cleaned in an ISO class 7 clean room before use to ensure the highest level of purity.
  • Cryogenic finishing ensures that the components are free of burrs, minimising the risk of failure in critical electronic systems.

Manifold for cell cultivation and thermal expansion paper

  • Characteristics: Components require excellent chemical resistance due to multiple experiments
  • Good stability
  • Typical materials: Polystone® P HG
