FPS filters are validated using test procedures that comply with ASTM F 838-15(ae1) protocols for the determination of bacterial reduction in filters used for liquid filtration. The filters are challenged with the organisms listed below.
- 0.03μm: Acholeplasma laidlawii
- 0.10μm: Brevundimonas diminuta
- 0.22μm: Brevundimonas diminuta
- 0.45μm: Serratia marcescens
- 0.65μm: Saccharomyces cerevisiae
FPS filters are 100% integrity tested. CPF filters are developed and manufactured under an ISO 9001:2015 certified Quality Management System and designed to be used in cGMP-compliant processes.
Available from 5-40 inches in length with several end connections and O-ring options.
These filters are FPS cartridges encapsulated in a polypropylene shell to minimize exposure to process fluids. A popular choice for single-use applications and can be disposed of easily. Sizes range from 2-30 inches in length. FPS Capsules are available pre-sterilized.
Mini-capsules are designed for lab scale testing, process development and small batch production with a filtration area of 500 cm2.
