Performance

Pegasus Prime virus filters deliver robust, high LRV independent of process parameters, process fluid and validation choices.

The data illustrated in Figure 1 demonstrate the reliable and stable performance across a wide range of process conditions and highlights process flexibility that makes Pegasus Prime virus filtration the ideal first choice virus filter for bioprocesses.

Pegasus Prime virus filters combine high LRV with high throughput and high flow in all mAb solutions to deliver an economic virus filtration solution with a small footprint for easy integration into single-use and automated processes.

The performance of three virus filtration options in a variety of fouling fluids is shown in Figure 2. These data illustrate that Pall’s comprehensive virus filtration portfolio can minimize the number of virus filters required for any given process. The most common economic solutions are shown below.
