For Small-Scale Sterile Air and Vent Applications
LifeASSURE™ PFS Series 50 mm Capsule Filters are ideal for air filtration applications in the laboratory. Containing the same filter media as 3M's full size capsules and filter cartridges, the 50 mm devices are convenient and have low hold-up volumes.
These products offer the ultimate in microorganism retention for air and gas streams while providing superior air flow capacity.
LifeASSURE PFS Series PTFE Capsule Filters are validated for sterilizing performance using a liquid bacteria (B. diminuta) challenge test method.
Small-Scale Sterilizing Grade Liquid Filtration
The LifeASSURE™ PDA Series 50 mm Capsule Filter combines two asymmetric polyethersulfone (PES) membrane layers in a design that is optimized for both high throughput and fast flow applications while offering 0.2 μm absolute-rated filtration for sterilizing performance. The hydrophilic polyethersulfone membrane wets easily for integrity testing and is ideal for applications where low protein binding is critical.
The upstream layer of the capsule filter is highly asymmetric and provides optimized prefiltration capacity for the downstream layer, which contains a centrally located, retention zone.
