Biopharm PES Cartridge Filters - 1

BPS Cartridge Filters PES Membrane Applications Buffers and Feedstocks Outside Diameter Filtration Area Integrity Test Specifications 10-inch cartridge, water wetted membrane Pore Size 0.03 μm Biopharmaceutical grade PS filters are hydrophilic and manufactured with asymmetric polyethersulfone (PES) membrane. PES membrane exhibits excellent flow rates with high throughput. BPS cartridge filters are used for critical bioburden reduction applications in the biopharmaceutical industry. Specific applications for BPS filters are bacteria removal in buffers, USP Water for Injection (WFI), SVPs, LVPs and other biopharmaceutical products. The filter elements are 100% integrity tested during production. Polyethersulfone is particularly suited for the filtration of products that contain elements that adsorb to the media, such as preservatives and proteins. The lower binding characteristics of polyethersulfone make it a good choice for filtration of valuable protein solutions such as vaccines and biologicals.
