Medical CO2 Lab

Medical CO2 Lab

Our state-of-the-art, automated, and highly efficient medical CO2 lab was designed with our customers’ requirements in the forefront of our minds.

Middlesex Gases understands how critical a steady and reliable supply of medical CO2 is to your life sciences or health-care organization. When you partner with us, you no longer have to be concerned about consistency of product, pricing, or service.

We are the only gas supplier in New England—and one of only two firms on the East Coast—with the in-house capabilities to manufacture medical-grade CO2 from raw product.

Our FDA-approved medical CO2 lab features world-class technology and equipment that is operated by our highly trained gas experts. This Middlesex team closely manages a medical CO2 process that is guided by strict safety regulations every step of the way, but that is also built for speed and productivity.

The Middlesex Medical CO2 Process

We have the capabilities to not only fill, qualify, and distribute medical-grade CO2 in both bulk and package gas form but to manufacture it from raw product, as well.

#1 Vacuum Manifold System

Before it is filled, a cylinder is prepped, blown, and vacuumed, and a complete pre-fill inspection is performed.

#2 CryoVation Semi-Automated Filling System

The cylinder’s tare weight is verified to ensure there are no impurities, missing metals, or corrosion. After a cylinder is found to be moisture-free, it is filled with medical CO2 via the CryoVation filling system connected to our 14-ton storage tank.

#3 Labeling

A label with a distinct, manually generated lot number is affixed to each cylinder, which verifies that the product inside has been qualified to USP standards and provides Middlesex and its customers with quality traceability.

#4 Analysis System Designed In-House by Middlesex

We specifically designed this system to test our manufactured product for 11 FDA-recognized contaminants and ensure compliance with full USP testing. It tests the final cylinder or dewar and the bulk system where medical CO2 is stored prior to filling.
