Dow Corning To Exhibit, Showcase Molded Silicone Tubing Assemblies at Interphex 2009


Dow Corning Healthcare Solutions experts will be featuring the latest innovations in silicone tubing and molded silicone tubing assemblies in booth 1241 at Interphex 2009 on March 17-19 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.

Dow Corning® Pharma Fabricated Tubing Assemblies help reduce the risk of contamination in biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical processing. They also streamline production and reduce labor, helping drug manufacturers focus on what they do best: produce life-saving pharmaceuticals.

The tubing assemblies are made from Dow Corning’s Silastic® Medical Grade Elastomer and are produced at the company’s dedicated, FDA-registered Healthcare Industries Materials Site. Dow Corning controls each part of the supply chain and process, from synthesizing the silicone raw materials to formulating the elastomers, to extruding and fabricating the components and delivering the final assemblies.
