AcroPak™ 500, 1000, & 1500 Capsules with Supor® Membrane

Fast, Final Filtration and High Throughputs
for Liquid Volumes Up To 150 L

  • Provides higher throughputs and faster flow rates than similarly-sized competitive devices
  • Ideal for solutions requiring low protein binding
  • Saves money by increasing throughput with available built-in prefilter
  • 100% integrity testing assures sterile filtrate
  • 0.1 μm Supor membrane version ensures sterile, mycoplasma-free cell culture media
  • Fusion-welded components eliminate the potential for release of extractables from sealing adhesives
  • Sterilization by gamma irradiation eliminates potential contamination by EtO residuals
