Small Volume and Scalable
Supracap 50 capsules are designed for developing and optimizing a process during scale-up and scale-down studies. They can be used to quickly and accurately determine which series and grade of depth filter media will provide the best performance as well as the necessary filtration area required to meet process volume.
Supracap 50 capsules are readily scalable to Pall Supracap 100 capsules, Supradisc™ I, and Supradisc II depth filter modules. Supracap 50 capsules are also available with Seitz® HP sheet media (double-layer) that scales to Pall Supradisc HP filter modules. Supracap 50 capsules are available with a wide selection of Seitz depth filter media for optimal grade selection.
High Quality Standards
- Batch tested in order to meet all quality requirements
- Manufactured under a Quality Management System certified to ISO 9000
- All plastic components used in construction meet the specifications for Biological Reactivity Tests in vivo for Class VI Plastics (121 °C) as described in the current United States Pharmacopoeia (USP).

Dual-Layer Filter Media Grade CombinationsMedia Grade Codes for Stax™, Supracap™ and Supradisc™ Modules
A dual layer media grade is a combination of two single layer media grades. The media grade code starts with P (Pharmaceutical Grade) followed by D (Dual layer) and the appropriate dual media combination ID. For generating a dual media combination ID, the appropriate top sheet grade letter (columns) is combined with the bottom sheet grade number or “x” (lines).
