Injection Blow Molding Biopharmaceutical Industry

Injection Blow Molding of Sterilized Polypropylene Centrifuge Bottles for the Biopharmaceutical Industry

BMP Medical (A Biomedical Polymers Company) used a Jomar 85S injection blow molding machine to produce these 500mL centrifuge bottles for use in a biopharmaceutical production application. We also supplied a closure with a platinum-cured O-ring to increase seal integrity. They are then repackaged and double bagged in a unit of measure of four or eight, sent out for sterilization, and then tested for particulate and endotoxin certifications. 

Our skilled and experienced employees manufactured the polypropylene part, which weighs approximately 55.5 grams, to +.005″/-.000″ tolerances.

We produced 65,000 parts, as per the blanket order, with quarterly releases. We then bagged and placed the parts in 16″ x 12″ x 19″ cartons for delivery to our biopharmaceutical industry client in Massachusetts.
