Validation

PPC filters are validated using test procedures that comply with ASTM F 838-15(ae1) protocols for the determination of bacterial retention in filters used for liquid filtration. The challenge level is a minimum of 107 organisms per cm2 of filter media. CPF filters have > 7-log removal when challenged with the organisms listed below (0.03μm, 0.10μm and 0.22μm meet the FDA definition of sterilizing grade filters).

Validation Guides are available upon request.

  • 0.03μm: Acholeplasma laidlawii 
  • 0.10μm: Brevundimonas diminuta
  • 0.22μm: Brevundimonas diminuta
  • 0.45μm: Serratia marcescens
