ReproQuest Introduces "Clear Choice" Semen Packaging
March 26, 2013
FIRST U.S. MADE, FULLY TRACEABLE SEMEN PACKAGING
ReproQuest, Inc. Expansion Results In New Technology
Introducing Clear Choice™ Packaging
Fitchburg, Wisconsin - ReproQuest is pleased to announce the completion of their expanded manufacturing facilities in Fitchburg, WI. The expansion which began in 2012 will be used in the manufacturing of the ReproQuest Clear Choice™ bag for use in swine semen packaging.
"Historically, semen packaging has been manufactured outside the United States with plastics that include adhesives." explained Dr. Kevin Rozeboom, President of ReproQuest, "Plastics that use adhesives may contain trace contaminants that cannot be identified using current industry testing. Without a reliable test to identify a potential threat, the industry is left vulnerable to repeat problems from these contaminants."
ReproQuest has incorporated a proprietary non-adhesive, medical grade plastic developed by 3M Corporation. The proprietary 3M plastic is manufactured using Lean 6-Sigma manufacturing processes resulting in a medical grade plastic that exceeds IPEC cGMP guidelines for medical and pharmaceutical use and ensures product integrity, consistency and traceability.
"By utilizing 3M's medical grade plastic in conjunction with our manufacturing provides the security of full traceability from initial ingredient acquistion to finished product." explained Dr. Rozeboom, "The Clear Choice™ product will be the only 100% U.S.A. sourced and manufactured bag for swine semen packaging."
