Specially Engineered Device
For High Flow Rate Applications
Optimized 0.2 µm Supor® membrane achieves 23% higher flow rates for shorter infusion times.
- 100% bacterial retention* provides added safety and patient protection.
- High capacity dual vents for faster repriming times and orientation-independent venting.
- Same materials of construction as IV-3 filter simplify validation requirements.
- Maximizes delivery of critical drugs with proven low drug binding Supor membrane to increase dosing accuracy.
* 0.2 µm Supor membrane is retentive of B. diminuta and meets USP 25/NF20 requirements for a sterilizing grade filter per ASTM F838-83 test methods.

Results of internal evaluations show that the IV-3 High Flow filter delivers flow rate performance that is 23% better than the traditional IV-3 filter design.
In high flow delivery applications, pumps are used to generate the flow rates required. The IV-3 High Flow filter was tested against Pall's traditional IV-3 filter design by comparing pump pressure required to maintain various flow rates using water and a cremophor solution. The results are shown below.
