Mycap® Aseptic Bottle Closures

Advancing the Function, Handling and Performance of Plastic and Glass Containers

Do more with centrifuge tubes, bottles, flasks and carboys fitted with a Mycap® closure. Mycap® improves container functionality by integrating tubing with the cap, which provides practical and dependable aseptic fluid handling. The versatile platform makes it possible to adjust the number, size and material of tubes in the cap without compromising the Mycap® high-performance platinum-cured silicone seal, allowing you to configure a system that fits your process applications. 

High-Performance Closure

Plasticizer-free, platinum-cured silicone seal maintains closure integrity and retains its physical properties from -65°C to > 200° C.

Enabling Accessories and Components

From the inventive dip tube tip for maximum fluid removal to the QUICKSEAL® aseptic disconnection, Mycap® is an adaptable solution for any application.

Simplified Validation

Mycap® is built with the same, proven closure system regardless of the container or tubing materials.  Validate Mycap® once, and use it freely across the entire production process.

What Makes Mycap® Special?

High-Performance Closure

Mycap® silicone closure is plasticizer-free, stabilizer-free and has no antioxidants. The low stress-to-seal design provides a highly compliant and reliable closure with outstanding compression set and low creep properties.
Mycap® is an ideal closure for most biopharmaceutical applications.

Protect from Product Loss

Purpose-built dip tube tip prevents suction during fluid removal. The subtle saddle shape ensures fluid removal down to the very last drop.

Direction Where You Need It

The Z-Flex Articulator is an elegantly simple design that is remarkably effective at keeping fluid inlet lines where they are needed or dip tubes away from other accessories in the bottle.

Intuitive and Simple Aseptic Disconnection

Quickseal® delivers simple and fast aseptic disconnection. Cut the collar to disconnect a filled bottle and seal the tubing in one simple step. Mycap® closures combined with Quickseal® disconnection provide a reliable system for critical fluid-management processes.

Secure Manifolds

Stopcock valve assemblies are compact, have integral valves for precise directional fluid flow control and reduce the number of connection points. The manifolds have Luer fittings and a Luer lock accessory to resist unscrewing, bringing a new level of security to stopcock valve assemblies.
