N-51® GLASS TUBING - KIMAX®

Kimble tubing is a world leader in tubing manufacturing for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets. A comprehensive quality management system has been developed that encompasses programs and techniques to consistently deliver the high quality that the marketplace demands. Statistical Process Control (SPC) is employed throughout the manufacturing processes for glass tubing that is converted into pharmaceutical containers. This vertical integration ensures that SPC is employed from start to finish; the raw material to manufacture glass tubing to the containers that will safeguard valuable and potentially life-saving medication.
