The breathability of ePTFE gives GORE® LYOGUARD® Freeze-Drying Trays its superior vapor transmission rate.

In the pharmaceutical industry, manufacturers must ensure the purity of their materials and the efficiency of their processes. Starting with the introduction of the GORE® LYOGUARD® Freeze-Drying Tray, a single-use lyophilization product, Gore has developed many single- and multi-use products and process components for transferring, storing, filtering and drug processing.  

We collaborate with manufacturers to design the solutions that fit their requirements for purity and help maximize process effectiveness. As with many Gore products, our life sciences solutions can provide high value by:

  • protecting and containing complex biologics
  • supporting speedy processing times
  • enabling secure fluid transfer and sampling
  • minimizing process disruption errors or issues

What differentiates Gore’s life sciences solutions is our deep understanding of fluoropolymers, particularly polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and its expanded form. By utilizing our materials expertise we can design products with properties like low extractables, high surface area, and resistance to chemicals and extreme temperatures for solutions that perform efficiently and more reliably than alternatives.

GORE™ Protein Capture Device for small-scale affinity chromatography, uses the unique properties of a proprietary ePTFE composite combined with Protein A to fundamentally improve the purification process. Designed for drug discovery and screening applications, it provides significant capacity and speed improvements in the purification of monoclonal antibodies.

Our newest product, the GORE® STA-PURE™ Flexible Freeze Container, helps minimize the risk of losing valuable bulk drug substances during cold chain handling. Unlike other disposable storage containers which may become brittle after freezing down to -86°C, the new single-use GORE STA-PURE Flexible Freeze Container uses a unique combination of PTFE composite film with low extractables and an innovative bag design to remain robust and resist breaks, cracks or leaks.
