Supor® AEF Intravenous Filter Set

The air-eliminating filter set designed for 24-hour drug delivery infusion

The Supor AEF Intravenous Filter Set is an air-eliminating filter indicated for use with any IV administration set for the removal of inadvertent particulate debris and microbial contamination.  The 0.2 µm Supor membrane is low protein and drug binding. It protects patients against air emboli and inadvertent bacterial and particulate contamination with minimal drug binding. 

Features and Benefits

  • 0.2 µm Supor (Polyethersulfone) membrane provides 24-hour patient protection
  • Very low protein binding provides minimal adsorption while containing no external wetting agents or surfactants to introduce unwanted extractables  
  • Free of natural rubber latex
  • Compatible with all standard clinical infusion regimens, including use with infusion pumps and syringe pumps
  • Use with continuous infusions or intermittent infusions or injections

Indications for Use

 

Inadvertent contamination of intravenous infusions can have serious consequences:

 

Particulate Contamination - Arises from a variety of sources, intrinsically in infusate and equipment, and extrinsically due to manipulations. Studies have demonstrated that particles may cause phlebitis.1
Particulate Contamination

 

Entrained Air - Results from degassing of solutions, incomplete priming, or with disconnection. Entrained air is especially problematic on central line, leading to air emboli.2
Entrained Air

 

Microbial Contamination - of IV administration systems arises inadvertently due to manipulations.3  Some bacteria can grow rapidly in infusion fluids, increasing the infection risk.4,5
Microbial Contamination
