Biopharm High Capacity PVDF Cartridge Filters - 1

BPVWL Cartridge Filters High Capacity PVDF Membrane Applications SVPs Plasma Products Dimensions Length Outside Diameter Integrity Test Information Representative samples from each manufacturing lot are tested for integrity to ensure consistent performance. Biopharmaceutical grade PVWL filters are made using hydrophilic polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) membrane. The proprietary membrane casting process creates a thick membrane with excellent retention characteristics and flow rates and low protein binding. BPVWL cartridges are used for a wide range of critical applications in the biopharmaceutical production. Applications include bioburden reduction in buffers and media, water for injection (WFI), solvents, alcohols and other liquids. Our filters provide high efficiency, validatable performance protecting sterilizing grade filters. PVDF is particularly suited for the filtration of products containing elements that can adsorb to the media, such as preservatives and proteins. The very low binding nature of PVDF makes it a good choice for filtration of valuable protein solutions such as vaccines, plasma products, MAb products, other biopharmaceuticals as well as products that contain low amounts of preservatives.
