ZTEC-P Filter for Biopharmaceutical Industry
Updated: Oct 1, 2021
With COVID-19 all over the news, some of you might be thinking of getting flu shots while scientists rush against the clock to find a vaccine.
First of all, what's the difference in a biopharma vs pharmaceutical industry? Biopharma and pharmaceutical companies both produce medicines, but the medicines made by biopharma companies are synthesized from living organisms, while those medicines made by pharmaceutical companies generally have a chemical basis.
The biopharmaceutical industry has one of the most stringent requirements when it comes to filtration quality. During downstream processing, the value of a biopharmaceutical product increases at every step as the purity of the product increases. Any mistakes, contamination, or product loss could be very costly for a manufacturer and have serious consequences for patients. Graver Technologies has developed ZTEC™ P Series Filter Cartridges which meet the stringent regulations required in the production of vaccines. ZTEC-P Sterilizing Grade membrane cartridges are validated for complete bacterial retention to yield product sterility in biopharmaceutical final filtration applications. The naturally hydrophilic and low protein binding characteristics of polyethersulfone membrane ensure maximum transmission of active ingredients, making it ideal for a wide range of pharmaceutical and biological liquid applications, including the filtration of therapeutics, vaccines, antibiotics, bulk pharmaceutical and other critical biotechnology products. The double-layer PES 0.2 micron membrane filters are manufactured in a cleanroom environment, and integrity tested before shipment to assure consistent performance and quality.
