Disposable Filter Assembly Speeds Change-outs, Saves Cleaning Costs
Meissner Filtration Products, Inc. announces the addition of an inline UltraCap filter assembly to its existing line of T-style assemblies for disposable filtration in biomanufacturing.The UltraCap assembly is an integrally sealed filter and housing system. This completely disposable system saves cleaning and cleaning validation costs and provides faster, more convenient filter change-outs than traditional cartridge and filter housing systems.The UltraCap disposable filter assembly is available with absolute removal ratings from 0.04 μm - 70 μm to meet a range of filtration applications, including sterile filtration of serum, tissue culture media, microbiological growth media, and other viscous biological liquids; sterile tank venting, and filling line applications with disposable plastic biocontainers. For critical applications, the UltraCap is available with membrane filters in PVDF (SteriLUX), polyethersulfone (STyLUX), polypropylene (Chemdyne), and PTFE (Ultradyne). Meissner also offers the UltraCap with pleated microfiber filters in polypropylene (ALpHA) and borosilicate glass (Protec), and polypropylene depth filters (DeltaMax). A gamma-irradiated version is also available for aseptic applications.Product scale-up is simplified with the new UltraCap. The sanitary, T-style connections or inline versions are available in 10”, 20”, and 30” lengths.
