PGD Cartridge Filters Pleated Fiberglass Depth Media Buffers and Other Media Dimensions Length Outside Diameter Construction Materials Filtration Media Pleated Fiberglass and Polypropylene Composite Depth Media Media Support Support Components Filtration Area PGD Depth Filter Cartridges are designed to meet FDA requirements. Our pharmaceutical grade fiberglass depth media cartridges are composite media cartridges containing a final downstream layer of polypropylene media to ensure fiber free effluent. These cartridges have been rinsed with high purity water to remove manufacturing debris from the product. They are rated at 99% retention at the rated pore size. The cartridge offers the benefits of high contaminant holding as well as excellent retention. These high capacity cartridges are used in pre‑filter applications as well as final filter applications where the goal is bioburden reduction and not sterile product. (Average - area varies with media thickness and porosity) Integrity Test Information All filter cartridges are factory tested for integrity before shipment. Field duplication of these tests is not practical because of the absence of commercial portable testing equipment.

The materials used to construct pharmaceutical grade GD cartridge filters are non-toxic and meet the requirements for the MEM Elution Cytotoxicity Test and the requirements for Biological Reactivity Tests in the current version of the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) for Class VI - 121 °C Plastics. GD cartridge filters comply with Title 21 CFR sections 210.3 (b)(6 and 211.72, for non-fiber releasing filters. The levels of bacterial endotoxins in aqueous extracts from pharmaceutical grade cartridge filters are below current USP limits as specified for water for injection. Quality Assurance...
