Aptar, world leader in the dispensing systems industry, has been working with Claranor since 2012 to evaluate the performance of pulsed light sterilization on their innovative closures: sport closures, spoon closures for infant milk, etc. Together we have developed a solution to decontaminate the dead volume in sport closures.
Silgan Closures is one of the world’s leading suppliers of closures and closure solutions. We have been working with since 2011. Flat closures with or without liner, 5 gallon closures … have been subjected to performance evaluation for decontamination by pulsed light. Pulsed light offers the advantage of being able to sterilize caps with liner without risk of chemical residue underneath.
These centers and laboratories are equipped with Claranor pulsed light pilot equipment. They are likely to carry out studies and projects on various matrices.
The INRA (National Institute for agricultural research) is a French public agronomic research organisation with a scientific and technological focus. Our microbiological laboratory is located in the INRA center in Avignon. Our tests are carried out there, before being validated by an external laboratory to ensure impartiality.
The Fraunhofer is the largest application-oriented research organisation in Europe. For our microbiological tests validation we work together with the Fraunhofer Institute for Process and Packaging Engineering IVV. The Institute also has a static decontamination laboratory machine Claranor.
