Plastics for Life Sciences Applications
Life sciences applications demand durability, reliability, regulatory compliance, traceability from raw materials and design flexibility. What’s the Rx for life sciences needs? Plastics, of course!
Environmental and Safety:
Considering the total carbon footprint, including costs of raw materials, manufacture, transport, fabricate, install, maintain, plastics compare favorably with more traditional materials. Also, plastics are safer to handle and install. When you consider that most plastics are readily recyclable, they can become the most environmentally responsible and safest choice for many demanding life science applications.
