Fluorodyne® EX EDF Cartridges

Fluorodyne EX grade EDF filters are 0.2 micron rated high capacity, low protein binding sterilizing grade filters. Incorporating a built-in prefiltration layer and validated to retain B. diminuta at a challenge level of 107 cfu/ cm2 of membrane, Fluorodyne EX grade EDF filters are ideal for the sterile filtration of cell harvest material and challenging intermediate and final bulk biological process fluids.

Pall's AB-style filters are replaceable cartridges used with stainless steel housing assemblies, suitable for medium-to-large-scale manufacturing operations (100 L to > 1000 L), supplied with -226 O-ring (Pall code 2 or code 7) fittings as standard.

AB-style filters with Fluorodyne EX grade EDF membrane feature a laid over pleat membrane construction and high effective filtration area (>1 m2 per 10” assembly) for outstanding throughput performance.

A validation package for Fluorodyne EX grade EDF filters supports the assurance of safety within your process.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Laid-over pleat filter construction allows for high flow rates and smaller filtration systems
  • Narrow core design for more area
  • Asymmetric built-in prefilter layer for higher dirt-holding capacity
  • Low protein and preservative binding
  • Low extractables
  • Designed for autoclaving or SIP under wet or dry conditions
  • 2D Matrix Marking for electronic traceability via barcode scanner

Quality Standards

  • All individual filter elements are integrity tested – test correlated to microbial retention
  • Manufactured for use in conformance with cGMP 
  • ISO 9000 Certified Quality System
  • Meets USP Biological Reactivity Test in vivo for Class VI-121 °C plastics
  • Every filter tested during manufacture
  • Certificate of Test provided includes
    • Fabrication Integrity 
    • Bacterial Retention
    • Materials of Construction
    • Effluent quality for cleanliness, TOC and water conductivity, pH and pyrogens

Product Summary

Fluorodyne® EX EDF Membrane Filter Cartridges retain microbial with their unique asymmetry and EX grade EDF filters. The AB-style cartridges are replicable and suitable for medium to large scale production. The filter has prefiltration built-in to hold more dirt and guarantee more efficient purification. The unit can be repeatedly autoclaved and SIP in either wet or dry conditions.
