Fluorodyne® EX EDF

Sterilizing-Grade Filters for Cell Harvest Material and Final Bulk Biological Process Fluids

Offered in a range of scalable formats, Fluorodyne EX grade EDF membrane filters feature a unique membrane pairing. These filters are most effective when filtering high-fouling feeds for which conventional dual-layer filters may have insufficient capacity, including:

  • Downstream processing: sterile filtration of clarified cell harvest
  • Formulation and filling: sterile filtration of nanosuspensions such as liposomes and emulsions

Superior Performance

Fluorodyne EX EDF membrane filters have a 0.2 µm removal rating and incorporate a high-capacity asymmetric polyethersulfone (PES) prefilter layer over a polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) membrane layer.

Benefits From Using Fluorodyne EX Grade EDF Filters

  • Very low protein and preservative binding
  • Fast and easy scale-up: all process development-scale filter formats are designed to scale directly to larger cGMP filter configurations
  • Low extractables
  • Exceptional throughput due to unique cartridge construction results in compact filter systems

Security of Supply and Reliability of Performance

Pall manufactures the PES and PVDF membranes used in Fluorodyne EX grade EDF filters. All Fluorodyne EX EDF filters are made at manufacturing sites in Puerto Rico and the United Kingdom.

Scientifically Validated

With a removal rating of 0.2 µm in liquids, Fluorodyne EX grade EDF filters are validated by bacterial liquid challenge using Brevundimonas (Pseudomonas) diminuta (ATCC 19146) at a challenge level of 107 cfu/cm2, supported with comprehensive validation data.
