The company was the first to market among premier filter suppliers with Sartoguard PES double layer pre-filters to protect their Sartopore 2 0.1 and 0.2-?m sterilizing-grade filters. The Sartoguard GF family further strengthens their pre-filter portfolio by offering high-performance depth- and membrane-based pre-filters in addition to membrane-only pre-filters, for a broad range of applications in the phama and biotech industries. Since the market introduction the sterilizing-grade filters, the use of PES-based membrane filters has become state of the art in biopharmaceutical manufacturing. GF filters feature a unique triple-layer construction made of glassfiber (GF) upstream fleece pleated together with heterogeneous double layer PES membranes for the highest total throughput performance and excellent clarification capability in critical pre-filtration applications. Tighter membranes have also been selected for respective 0.2 ?m and 0.1 ?m nominal retention ratings to provide exceptional protection to 0.2 ?m sterilizing-grade and 0.1 ?m mycoplasma retentive filters. The filter elements are typically used for pre-filtration of: cell-culture media, viscous buffers, serum and serum-supplemented media, ophthalmics, large-volume parenterals, and all colloid- and lipid-containing materials.
