As long as the whole system needs to be completely closed during the process, they always require a vent filter. This filter equalizes the pressure and allows to fill or empty the bottle. If the closure of the bottle can be open during the process, a vent filter is not necessarily needed.
Bottles, Containers, Vials and more
Components like bottles, containers and vials can be found in nearly every company and are used for sampling, medium preparation, buffers or filling applications. Depending on the intended application, different types and volumes are being used, which need to be optimally matched to the individual processes.
Big volume carboys are commonly used for medium preparation or buffer storage and reach volumes that cannot be covered with standard bottles. They have a robust design and carrying handles on their shoulders that facilitate their handling. These carboys are available in the materials HDPE, PP, PC and PETG, which means, that they can be autoclaved as well as gamma sterilized.
High purity PFA and FEP bottles are especially suited for filling, storage and transport of high-quality and sensible drug substances. Our Purillex™ bottles stand out due to the fact that both, the bottle and the closure, are being manufactured from a single material. This avoids the common use of two different materials and creates a bottle which exclusively consists of high purity fluoropolymer. These bottles have a really high temperature resistance, which allows to use them for processes for which common bottles cannot be used. Purillex™ bottles are available in sizes from 50 to 2000 ml.
PFA vials with a volume of 3 to 15 ml are perfectly suited for validation purposes or storage of individual production batch samples. Like the bottles, these vials and their closure only consist of high purity PFA material and have a really high temperature resistance.
Single-use systems mainly use bottles and containers that can be sterilized by gamma irradiation and allow to ship a sterilized ready-to-use product. Multi-use components need to be made of robust materials, because they are getting cleaned and sterilized via autoclave multiple times. Within our portfolio, you can find both types of materials and even a few products that can be used for both, gamma-sterilization and autoclaving.
Needless to say, that we also offer a huge variety of different glass wares. These are commonly used in laboratories or research departments, can be autoclaved, have a high durability and are manufactured from high-class glass. The product range includes bottles, beakers, measuring cylinders and much more.
GMPTEC offers you a large product range, fast shipping times and high stock levels! All our bottles and containers are supplied with a batch-related certificate of conformance.

Frequently asked Questions about Bottles and Containers:
GMPTEC offers you a huge number of bottles and containers in different sizes. For standard bottles, the volume is usually between 125 – 2000 ml. However, carboys can archive a maximum volume of up to 75 liters!
Most bottles should not be used for freezing applications, as the materials are not designed for it and could easily crack or become brittle. However, the GMPTEC portfolio also includes high purity Purillex™ PFA or FEP bottles, which have been developed especially for flash freezing applications with liquid nitrogen. These bottles have an enormous temperature resistance and can withstand -328 °F to 392 °F.
