Inhaler and Liquid-Dispensing Filters

BioVyon™ material has been found to be ideal as a filter for aspirator air in products such as nasal sprays and eye drop containers. The material can be made to reduce bacteria to regulatory levels. For pharmaceutical and medical applications the CGMP process BioVyon™ can be produced with low bioburden, which is essential for these products.

BioVyon™ materials

  • Polyethylene and polypropylene.

Formats

  • Moulded, discs from sheet materials.

Applications

  • Vent filter for drug delivery systems such as nasal sprays or eye drop dispensers for example.

Features and benefits

  • Materials are regulatory approved.
  • Made to cGMP processes  with low bioburden.
  • Polyethylene is hydrophobic and does not wet out easily for air applications.
  • Hydrophilic options for aqueous applications.
  • Custom-made to optimise filter performance and airflow.
  • Can be designed to reduce bacteria to regulatory levels.

BioVyon™ materials

  • Polyethylene or polypropylene.

Formats

  • Moulding or discs from sheet material.

Applications

  • Support for sodium bicarbonate cartridges used in pH control for dialysis.

Features and benefits

  • BioVyon™ filters are designed for optimum flow and retention of the bicarbonate.
  • Rigid and robust support.
  • Can be custom designed for ease of manufacture and optimum performance.
  • Materials regulatory approved.

Desiccant, Moisture Control, Oxygen Scavenging Capsules and Containers

Sorbent products, including desiccants, moisture regulators, oxygen absorbers, volatile absorbers, and other specialty products are designed to extend your product's shelf or service life and protect the product's quality. Encapsulation of the sorbent is a key part of the product to not only encapsulate but to control exposure. BioVyon™ has proved to be an excellent material for encapsulation, for example a sorbent in a bottle top. Its strength, cleanliness and controlled pore size are essential properties. Made with regulatory approved materials by cGMP processes, BioVyon™ offers the optimum solution for these applications.

BioVyon™ materials

  • Polyethylene, potential use of composite materials, laminates.

Format

  • Moulded or discs from sheet or roll.

Applications

  • These devices are used for environmental control of pharmaceutical and food products, for example in packaging.
  • An example is a desiccant encapsulated in a tablet bottle top.
  • BioVyon™ is ideal as a support for these materials. It offers excellent airflow whilst retaining the active media.

Features and benefits

  • BioVyon™ filters are designed for optimum flow and retention of the active materials such as carbon, silica gel.
  • Rigid and robust support.
  • Can be custom designed for ease of manufacture and optimum performance.
  • Materials regulatory approved.
  • Made by cGMP processes.

Process Chromatography Supports

In the manufacture of drugs, chromatographic materials and other resins are often used for both isolation and purification. Regulatory approved BioVyon™ materials are an ideal material for these applications; strong and firm support with uniform flow is a prerequisite for these applications.

The size of the columns can vary, and require supports of up to 2 metres in diameter. Porvair can custom manufacture to fit all proprietary column designs. The larger diameter disc supports are manufactured in a cGMP clean and temperature-controlled environment to achieve the tight tolerances required for this application.

BioVyon™ materials

  • Polyethylene or hydrophilic polyethylene.

Formats

  • Custom-made cut discs.

Applications

  • Support for resins used in process chromatography columns.
  • They are used to control the flow of the liquid mobile phase.

Features and benefits

  • Regulatory approved materials.
  • Made to industry-standard cGMP processes.
  • Strong and rigid for optimum support.
  • Custom-made for any proprietary column in a clean and temperature-controlled environment to achieve optimum fit in the column.
  • Uniform porosity across the whole support for uniform flow.

Bioreactor Aeration

A bioreactor is a system that supports a biologically active environment in a manufacturing vessel. The process involves biologically active materials that need oxygen (air) and mixing. BioVyon™ materials are an ideal material for delivering a fine bubble stream for both effective oxygenation and mixing.

BioVyon™ materials

  • Polyethylene or hydrophilic polyethylene.

Formats

  • Custom-made sheets and tubes.

Features and benefits

  • Regulatory approved materials.
  • Made to industry-standard cGMP processes.
  • Clean, strong and rigid.
  • Uniform porosity across the whole support for uniform airflow for both efficient oxygen transfer and mixing (stirring).
  • Material can be selected for optimum bubble size for efficient oxygen transfer.
  • Material can be selected for optimum pressure drop.
