Posidyne® Filter Cartridges product photo Primary L

Posidyne® Filter Cartridges

Pall Posidyne filter cartridges incorporate a patented covalent charge-modified Nylon 6,6 membrane which exhibits a net positively-charged Zeta potential in aqueous solutions. This positive Zeta potential provides enhanced retention of fine particles smaller than the membrane’s rating, such as endotoxins in water, in a direct flow mode without the higher pressure drop of finer filters. High-area pleated into single open-ended (SOE) AB sanitary-style cartridges, N66 Posidyne filters are available in particulate and bioreduction grades and in sterilizing-grades.

Features and Benefits

  • Inherently water wettable 
  • Resin and surfactant-free 
  • Positive Zeta potential 
  • Enhanced retention of particles smaller than filter rating
  • Removes endotoxins from water
  • High protein recovery from sera and most protein solutions 
  • Low filter extractables 
  • 100% integrity-tested 
  • Individually serialized 
  • Manufactured for use in conformance with cGMP 
  • ISO 9000 Certified Quality System 
  • Pharmaceutical P optimized grades with Certificate of Test provided
  • Validation Guide available

Note: These filters are also available in Kleenpak Nova capsule format.

Quality and Bio-Safety


Biological Tests

  • Meets USP Biological Reactivity Test, in vivo, for Class VI-121 °C Plastics
