Carboys and bottles are used day in, day out in the life science and pharmaceutical industries with little thought as to how their design could be improved, or how the ability to customise a product and make it suit your own application could make life a lot easier.
Saint Gobain has developed a range of bottle assemblies and carboys with a number of unique features that our customers really appreciate - even if it's just being able to reduce the amount of space their existing carboys take up, or having a spigot that doesn't leak!

New Bio-Simplex® Carboys provide advanced liquid handling and solution storage for general laboratory, process development and bioproduction applications. Saint-Gobain offers a range of popular sizes of carboys from: 2.5 L to 75 L manufactured from high quality Polyproplyene, HDPE and PETG.
Bio-Simplex® Erlenmeyer flask systems – the number one choice of the biopharmaceutical industry for single-use assemblies – feature a standard polycarbonate flask, cap and EZ Top® closure assembly; the latter is now available as a stand-alone item. These assemblies are made from C-Flex® pharmaceutical-grade thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) resin and consist of tubing with choice of either Luer connections or CPC® quick disconnect end fittings, a Bio-Simplex® FlexJoint™, a 0.2 µm vent filter (for sterile gas exchange) and a polypropylene cap.
Bio-Simplex® sterile bottle assembly systems are available in a range of commonly used sizes (from 60-mL to 2-liter). Each system includes a PETG bottle (the 2-liter bottle is polycarbonate) and a 2-port EZ Top® closure assembly consisting of a 0.2 µM vent filter, an 18-inch length of tubing with a plug end, a notched dip tube that extends to the bottom of the bottle, and a polyethylene cap (the 2-liter cap is polypropylene). The EZ Top® assembly is made from C-Flex® pharmaceutical-grade thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) resin.
Economically designed for the single-use market, Bio-Simplex® sampling manifold systems reduce the risk of cross-contanimation while delivering significant additional time and cost savings in the areas of assembly, cleaning and cleaning validation. They are available in four-, six-, eight- and ten-bottle configurations, with a 500-mL purge bottle at the end of the manifold. Each individual 60-mL sampling bottle is connected to the manifold with 10 inches of tubing and a Pure-Fit® TC clamp, and features an EZ Top® container closure, a 0.2 µM vent filter (for sterile gas exchange) and a polyethylene cap.
