Saint-Gobain Life Sciences has the capability to produce thousands of caps and closure assemblies options on our high-speed, fully automated lining equipment. Each assembled closure and liner is 100% inspected in-line for both functional and cosmetic defects. Saint-Gobain is an ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18000 certified manufacturing facility.
Saint-Gobain lines closures ranging in size from 8mm - 89mm, or can manufacture custom closures to our customers’ specifications. All tooling—such as dies for liner size and equipment modifications - is maintained at our on-site machine shop.
Our bonding machines are fully automated to adhere liners to closures using a mechanical bond without any adhesives or chemicals. Saint-Gobain has high speed biocompatible glue-fit equipment as well as press-fit machines for friction fit closures, such as aluminum crimps.
Sonic Welded Liners
Saint-Gobain's proprietary MicroLink® sonic welding technology eliminates the risk of adhesive contamination and bond failure associated with autoclaving or production line dynamics.

- Minimize risk of fallout
Saint-Gobain offers a broad range of LabPure® Press Fit Liners for closure assemblies that are manufactured to precise tolerances and tested to stringent specifications to ensure a quality closure with no risk of adhesive contamination.
- No glue contamination
Saint-Gobain will work with customer to co-develop a custom solution for your closure needs. Saint-Gobain can line customer-supplied closures with our proprietary liners. For medical or pharmaceutical applications, a white room is available for assembly and packaging. For demanding applications, our R&D facility can formulate custom compounds.
LabPure® closures are made from ultra-pure materials to ensure maximum protection of samples. We offer thousands of standard and specialty closure assemblies to meet specific Life Science application needs.
Cell Culture: Fully automated mechanical bonding of septa liner to the closure eliminates contamination.
Chromatography: Autosampler closure, liner and vial assemblies enable a consistent, perfect fit every time.
Environmental: Chemical resistant closures and liners with PTFE faces and low durometer ensure low extractables for accurate analysis.
Medical/Pharmaceutical: A white room is available for assembly and packaging.
