2019 BioProcess International Conference Europe LogoNEWARK, Del. (March 22, 2019) – W.L. Gore & Associates, Inc. ("Gore"), a global materials science company, announces its intention to participate in two upcoming life sciences conferences. At the 2019 BioProcess International Conference Europe (BPI Europe), in Vienna, Joe Cintavey, Gore Product Specialist, will present “A Challenge with Single-Use Technology: Protecting Bulk Drug Substance (DS) during Cold-Chain Handling, Storage, and Transport” on Thursday, April 4, 2019 at 2:05 P.M., along the Vaccines Track. The presentation will focus on the challenges of utilizing single-use containers throughout the biologics cold chain and introduce a new solution specifically designed to address these challenges in existing cold chain handling technologies. Gore is also exhibiting at Stand #7.

GORE® STA-PURE™ Flexible Freeze Containers are designed to protect high-value bulk drug substances from container breakage or leakage during frozen handling—typically the most vulnerable stage of the product’s journey from processing to delivery. The containers are constructed of a proprietary high-strength fluoropolymer material that is durable after freezing at -86°C (-123°F). In addition to durability, the container’s chemically inert, biocompatible, high-purity fluoropolymer composite film has a low extractables profile. It also offers users the convenience and scalability of a single-use system that efficiently uses freezer space. For more information, visit www.gore.com/notthatyouwould.
