For MilliporeSigma, developing advanced packaging concepts is a fundamental aspect of safety, sustainability and reliability. We have developed an exceptional range of packaging options that ensure safe transport, storage and handling while minimizing environmental impact. Our innovative packaging and withdrawal systems are precisely tailored to their contents and relevant applications, and they are based on both environmental and safety principles.
Developing, testing, and approving packaging materials is done in MilliporeSigma’s internal packaging department. Not only the container itself but also the closure, transportation box and withdrawal systems (for solvents) are optimized as a complete packaging concept.
Our package testing facility is accredited by the German Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM - Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung), the authority responsible for the packaging of dangerous goods.
Since all MilliporeSigma reagents and solvents carry GHS labels, customers worldwide can work safely and in compliance with international regulations. The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) describes standardized classification and labeling criteria for chemicals, including hazard symbols and safety data sheets.
In order to ensure label durability, we use varnished paper labels that are resistant to most chemicals, or apply PE labels wherever necessary. All labels are resistant to abrasion, forgery proof, and adhered with glue that is specially developed for use in the chemicals sector.
All our products are delivered in sophisticated and suitable packaging. The choice of packaging, however, varies from grade to grade. EMSURE® products are available in a large variety of packaging sizes and materials to suit your particular application requirements. EMPARTA® and EMPLURA® products are offered in standard pack sizes, for example, 1 kg or 25 kg for solids, and 2.5 L, 4 L, or 25 L for liquids.
