• Modified membrane increases product yield and improves manufacturing workflows
• TwinPleat® geometry increases filtration performance and reduces filtration costs
Goettingen, Germany, June 19, 2012 / B3C newswire / – Sartorius Stedim Biotech (SSB), a leading international pharma and biotech supplier, presents a new generation of sterilizing-grade filters: Sartopore® Platinum. This product family sets new standards in sterile filtration and expands the comprehensive Sartorius filter portfolio.
Higher product yields and more efficient manufacturing workflows
The surface of the Sartopore® Platinum polyethersulfone filter membrane has been modified using a hydrophilic and highly thermostable polymer. This surface modification gives the membrane excellent wetting properties and minimizes its protein binding. Fewer than five liters of WFI (Water for Injection) are needed to wet a 10” Sartopore® Platinum cartridge fast and reliably for subsequent integrity testing that provides dependably accurate results.
The membrane’s minimized protein binding considerably increases product yield, thus augmenting the efficiency of manufacturing processes. Sartopore® Platinum filter cartridges can be dry-steam sterilized in the forward or the reverse direction, without altering the properties of their membrane. These sterilizing-grade filters can be used in the entire
