ZTEC P Series Filter Cartridges

PES (Polyethersulfone) Filter Cartridge for sterile Filtration

ZTEC P Sterilizing Grade membrane cartridges are validated for complete bacterial retention to yield product sterility in biopharmaceutical final filtration applications. The naturally hydrophilic and low protein binding characteristics of polyethersulfone membrane ensure maximum transmission of active ingredients making it ideal for a wide range of pharmaceutical and biological liquid applications, including the filtration of therapeutics, vaccines, antibiotics, bulk pharmaceutical and other critical biotechnology products. The double-layer PES 0.2 micron membrane filters are manufactured in a cleanroom environment, and integrity tested before shipment to assure consistent performance and quality.
