Protecting Medical Devices / Diagnostic Products with Flow Dry Desiccants
Flow Dry's range of products and adsorbent solutions are perfect for protecting medical devices and diagnostic products by sealing, drying and controlling moisture and gases. The most common desiccant used in diagnostic products is molecular sieve. Molecular sieve is uniquely suited to this application due to its aggressive adsorption of moisture, although some companies still use silica gel and even clay for their diagnostic applications. We can provide all of these fills in a wide range of sizes and formats.
Flow Dry is registered with the FDA with a Drug Master File to meet the specific requirements for pharmaceutical, diagnostic test kit, and medical device applications.
