Use of extractables data from silicone tubing for toxicological risk assessment
Dr. Sade Mokuolu, Global Product Compliance Manager,

Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG), fluid path solutions provider of peristaltic pumps and single-use components, outlines the results of a study which makes comparisons between the semi volatiles extractables profile of post-cured and non post-cured samples of its Pumpsil platinum-cured silicone tubing.
The study concludes that drug manufacturers must embrace the arguments for post-cured silicone tubing which can significantly reduce the amount of cyclosiloxanes that are present after tubing manufacturing.
