A single-vent, 13-mm stopper joins the co.'s LyoTec™ line for lyophilized pharmaceutical products. The co. feels that as more biotech drugs arrive on market, the new product will enable manufacturers to select the appropriate stopper and vial sizing combination required. Like others in the line, the new single-vent-configured stopper features a fluorocarbon barrier film on its top to prevent sticking to pressure plates of chambers after the lyophilization cycle.
