Supor® EKV Sterilizing-Grade Filter Cartridges product photo Primary L

Supor® EKV Sterilizing-Grade Filter Cartridges

Supor EKV filters are 0.2 micron rated validated sterilizing-grade membrane filters. Utilizing a laid-over-pleat membrane geometry for high flow rates and throughput performance, they are designed for the most cost effective filtration of a wide range of liquids such as buffers, tissue culture media, and others. A PES membrane ensures very high compatibility over the whole pH range plus very low protein binding to ensure the maximum transmission of active ingredients.

Pall’s AB style filters are disposable cartridges to be used with stainless steel housing assemblies, most suitable for medium to large scale manufacturing operations (100 L to >1000 L).

A validation package for Supor grade EKV filters supports the assurance of safety within your process.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Hydrophilic polyethersulfone membrane for low adsorption and wide chemical compatibility
  • Good wettability for a reliable integrity test
  • Patented Ultipleat® technology for high-area and good flow rates
  • Built-in, MachV asymmetric prefilter layer for long-life and low filtration costs
  • High-strength construction tolerates up to 1 bard (14.5 psid) differential pressure during steam-in-place sterilization

Quality Standards

  • Manufactured for use in conformance with cGMP 
  • 100% integrity tested
  • ISO 9000 Certified Quality System
  • Meets USP Biological Reactivity Test, in vivo, for Class VI-121 °C Plastics
  • Every filter tested during manufacture. Test correlated to microbial retention.
  • Certificate of Test provided includes:
    • Fabrication Integrity 
    • Bacterial Retention 
    • Materials of constructions
    • Effluent quality for cleanliness, TOC and Water Conductivity, pH and Pyrogens

Products in this datasheet may be covered by one or more patents including :
EP 1 096 983
