Molded Reagent Container

Injection Blow Molded

Reagent Container

At BMP Medical, we manufacture highly precise plastic consumables for medical device research and medical diagnostics. Our injection blow molding process meets critical OEM standards for Class I Medical Devices. We can also produce a variety of containers using formulated polymers that can meet virtually any application requirement for major diagnostic companies.

In the project highlighted here, we were asked to provide complete sourcing and manufacturing for a 500 mL square reagent container that would be incorporated into a clinical diagnostic test kit. The container had to meet exact customer specifications for Class I approval. This was not an ordinary off-the-shelf part nor was it available on the open market. It required our team to conduct full design, manufacturing, and quality control under one roof within a timeframe of 10 days. To meet these standards, we configured a set of unique tooling and designed a specialized production process; allowing us to achieve very low residuals and leachables. The 500 mL bottle was produced using our 85-ton Jomar injection blow molding machine, and the cap was produced on a 165-ton injection molding machine. This highly precise method yielded dimensional tolerances as tight as +0.005”. We used USP Grade VI Polypropylene; employing a zero release agent chemical treatment that prevented material bonding to the container’s A1 surface finish. To ensure that we met the exact specifications for our customer’s upcoming 510K filing, each bottle was subjected to a rigorous dimensional and leak testing regimen.

Our customer was extremely pleased with our commitment to quality and our ability to work toward a viable product that met all stringent Class I Medical Device standards. It highlighted our ability to act as a single source provider for our customer. We produced a total of 400,000 bottles and caps within an extremely tight deadline. Today, we continue to work with this customer on new product designs. For more information on our injection blow molding capabilities for the medical industry, please contact us.

Plastic Products Catalog

BMP Medical is a quality manufacturer of plastic consumables and plastic products for research and medical diagnostic laboratories. Our products are manufactured to the highest quality standards. We offer a wide selection of products sold through the world’s premier laboratory distributors.

Non-Sterile and Sterile Centrifuge Bottles

  • Available with standard caps for low-speed work and sealing caps for high-speed applications
  • Caps have a built-in gripper to facilitate removal from the rotor
  • Extra thick walls for durability-resistant to most chemicals
  • Wide mouth design makes filling and decanting easier

These precision molded centrifuge bottles are available in polycarbonate or polypropylene. For low speed applications the bottles provide excellent value for large volume/large batch centrifugation procedures. For high-speed work, the easy-to-use Noryl® (Noryl® is a registered trademark of General Electric Company) sealing caps with silicone O-rings enable leak-free processing at high centrifugal forces over long durations. Bottles must be filled to 80% of capacity.

Centrifuge bottles may be autoclaved at 121ºC at 15 psi for 20 minutes. Caps should be placed on the bottles without engaging the threads. Bottles are qualified to the rated g-forces using Sorvall® (Sorvall® is a registered trademark of Kendro Laboratory Products) and Fiberlite® (Fiberlite® is a registered trademark of Piramoon Technologies Inc.) high-speed rotors, tested at 20ºC, with bottles filled to 80% of capacity.

Failure to use the correct rotor cushion or adapter will shorten the life of the bottle and may prevent achievement of the maximum rated RCF and/or bottle failure.

Prolonged autoclaving and reuse may cause stress cracks, crazing or bottle discoloration.

Cytology Funnels Category

BMP Medical Cytology Funnels for the Shandon CytoSpin® Centrifuge BMP Medical Cytology Funnels are the functional equivalent of the Thermo Shandon CytoFunnel®. Fully compatible with the Shandon CytoSpin Centrifuge, BMP Medical Cytology Funnels can be used to deposit a thin layer of cells in a clearly defined area of a microscope slide. The filter card absorbs any excess fluid. Operation is identical to those supplied by Shandon and easy-to-follow instructions are included in each pack. All products sold in case quantities only.

Hemodrop Blood Dispenser

The Hemodrop is designed to reduce the risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens in the Hematology laboratory. To prepare a manual differential smear, a drop of blood needs to be dispensed onto a glass slide from the specimen tube. Simply puncture the rubber stopper with the Hemodrop, and then invert and press gently onto the slide. A single drop of blood will be dispensed and the slide is ready. No more removing the stopper and manually putting a drop on the slide to test blood.

Specimen Collection

For specimen collection and transport, this system provides disposable products for the convenient collection, delivery, and testing of urine specimens. A plastic cup is provided for specimen collection and the pressure sensitive patient identification labels have ample writing space. The lightweight transport rack is small and easy to carry yet provides space for up to 20 tubes with labels and caps. The tubes are made of sturdy polystyrene and are safe for centrifuging. The flared top permits the use of a midget urinometer ensuring a tight cap fit.
