Water Filters from Sartorius Group

Sartoclean® GF MaxiCaps® Liquid Filters -- 560**04E2


 
 

MaxiCaps is a unique new housing design concept from Sartorius that brings the benefits of single use filter elements to process scale. The incorporation of Sartoclean GF filter cartridges into self contained, high quality polypropylene housings makes it possible to operate large scale filter installations without the need for filter housings. So additional costs for cleaning of housings and cleaning validation can be eliminated. MaxiCaps are ready-to-use and can be easily replaced should any operational difficulties occur. By relying on established process validation data for Sartoclean GF standard cartridge elements, MaxiCaps can easily be implemented into current filtration processes. MaxiCaps are available in 10”, 20” and 30” versions allowing flexibility in process design. Sartolclean GF Maxicaps combine absolute retention performance by membrane filtration with the high adsorptive capacity of glass fiber fleeces. Therefore Sartoclean GF filters are ideally suited for removal of colloids and lipids, for defined particle retention and also for bioburden reduction in a broad range of bio-pharmaceutical applications. Sartoclean GF filters are widely used for prefiltration in biotech manufacturing processes to protect downstream processing equipment. Typical applications include bioburden reduction as well as effective colloid and lipid removal from Fermentation broths, Cell Culture Media and Colloid and Lipid containing solutions. Sartoclean GF Maxicaps are designed, developed and manufactured in accordance with a ISO 9001 certified Quality Management System. A Validation Guide is available for compliance with regulatory requirements. For linear scale-up and broadest process flexibility Sartoclean GF filters are as well available as filter cartridges, MaxiCaps, capsules and mini cartridges.

Applications:

Sartoclean MaxiCaps are widely used for prefiltration in biotech manufacturing processes to protect subsequent downstream processing equipments. Sartoclean GF MidiCaps & MaxiCaps are ideally suited for the biodurden reduction as well as effective colloid and lipid removal from:

  • Fermentation broths
  • Serum
  • Plasma
  • Cell Culture Media
  • Colloid and Lipid containing solutions

Performance:

Due to the combination of high adsorptive glass fiber fleeces with membrane filters Sartoclean GF MaxiCaps assure optimal total throughput performance. Therefore the MaxiCaps allows a more economical filtration system design.

Process Safety:

The removal of collodial contaminations and lipids by adsorption allows an effective downstream processing and bioburden reduction by membrane filtration prevents the formation of pyrogenes during the process – resulting in an increased process safety, especially for biotech derived fluids.

Flexibility:

Sartoclean GF MaxiCaps are available with various filtration areas from 0.6 m² | 6 ft² up to 1.8 m² | 18 ft² for easy adoption to any filtration process independent from the batch size.

Scalability:

Consistent and predictable scale-up and down trials can reliably be performed as all Sartoclean GF MaxiCaps are produced with the same type of membrane and identical materials of construction.

Cost Saving:

The use of the disposable capsule design concept avoids investments into stainless steel filter housings and eliminates additional costs for cleaning of housings and cleaning validation.

Documentation:

Sartoclean GF MaxiCaps are designed, developed and manufactured in accordance with a ISO 9001 certified Quality Management System. A Validation Guide is available for compliance with regulatory requirements.
