Life Sciences Tools

Ensuring effective separation in life sciences tools

Life Sciences Tools Overview

Life sciences tools relate to the separation sciences, typically known as chromatography. The three main types are liquid (HPLC), gas and ion.

Using high pressure pumps, substances and samples are pushed through columns, typically highly packed with silica. These are separated into those with little affinity to silica, that pass through the column quickly, and others with high affinity to silica, that pass through more slowly.

This methodology is widely used in biotech and pharmaceutical industries.

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has been providing sealing components used in these systems for a number of years that ensure long system life and prevent contamination. Our solutions are used in the following life sciences tool components:


  • PTFE & UHMWPE Seals
  • Seals
  • Frits
