Plastics Research

Plastics Research

All plastic materials must be sperm and embryo friendly and also meet important physical requirements, such as gas permeability, printability, durability in liquid nitrogen... This demands a high standard in selecting and testing of raw materials, the processing technology and quality control of finished plastic products.

The Minitube plastics experts and our Quality Management department oversee the quality of production and do intensive research for new materials and processing technologies for existing and new plastic products.

All Minitube plastic consumables undergo the Sperm Safe program

  • Raw materials are exclusively sourced from certified suppliers and comply with FDA and EU directives
  • All raw component batches undergo sperm toxicity tests prior to release for production
  • The production process guarantees full traceability
  • Minitube production premises are certified according to ISO 9001:2015 and regularly audited by external entities
