Watson-Marlow is the world leader in solving fluid handling problems with peristaltic tube and hose pumps. Watson-Marlow Pumps Group provides aseptic filling, capping and stoppering solutions for pharmaceutical, biotech and diagnostic applications.
Your processes require sterility and a high degree of precision to ensure the integrity and quality of the end product. Fluid isolation and precise metering are vital, not meeting these demands can be enormously costly. Peristaltic pumps from Watson-Marlow provide total process confidence and security by:
The Watson-Marlow Pumps Group includes: Watson-Marlow Pumps, Watson-Marlow Tubing, and Flexicon Liquid Filling.
Flexicon liquid filling offers aseptic filling machines and capping systems for pharmaceutical, biotech and diagnostic applications. Designed for use in sterile environments, Flexicon aseptic filling machines offer a high degree of accuracy with documented precision. When used with asepticsu filling solutions, offering a single-use sterile fluid path, cross-contamination is eliminated, ensuring fast and efficient validation.
Flexicon offers a range of products that can be adapted and expanded to accommodate growth; from stand-alone units for manual filling, through semi-automatic systems, to fully automated filling, stoppering and capping machines. The fully automated systems are customised to fit any glass vial, plastic bottle, test tube, eye dropper or non-self-standing microtube. Filling volumes range from 0.1ml to more than 1l.
Watson-Marlow is the only pump manufacturer in the world to manufacture its own tubing. Available in over 40 standard sizes plus custom sizes, Watson-Marlow tubing provides excellent application and chemical capability. We offer a range of biopharmaceutical grade tubing for peristaltic pumping and transfer use, including Pumpsil, PureWeldXL and Bioprene. Flexicon also produce Accusil - platinum-cured silicone tubing developed for use with Flexicon fillers. Both Flexicon Accusil and Watson-Marlow Pumpsil are laser-etched with part number, lot number and use by date for 100% traceability.
Watson-Marlow and Flexicon tubing provides repeatable pumping performance, highest-purity manufacturing and ultimate traceability. Certification is in every box and comprehensive validation packs are readily available.
Watson-Marlow peristaltic pumps have great advantages over other pump types such as gear pumps and diaphragm pumps because there are no impellers, vanes, lobes or valves to damage the product. This separation of fluid from the pump action ensures contamination-free pumping which is ideal for pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. The peristaltic pump action is low-shear, smooth and reliable with easy cleaning.
Watson-Marlow pumps offer sterile and accurate dispensing, metering and transfer with flow rates from as small as 1µl/min to 4,000l/hr.
