Integrity Testers for Bioprocessing

For non-destructive filter integrity testing that is fast, reliable, and repeatable, the Integritest® 5 automated test instrument allows bubble point and diffusion testing inline or offline, with additional capability for hydrophobic filter testing when paired with the Exact-Air™ II water-based test unit.

Bioreactor protection
Media Filtration for Bioprocessing

Cell culture media filtration prevents bioreactor contamination. Selection of a sterilizing filter, mycoplasma filter, or virus filter depends on process risk. Learn how to select the best filter for your cell culture media filtration.

Capsule and cartridge filters
Prefilters & Bioburden Control for Bioprocessing

Prefilters are used to remove particulates and protect downstream unit operations. They can be used to provide column protection or in front of a sterilizing-grade filter to improve capacity. Learn how our cost-effective prefilters can enhance your process economics.

Sterile drug product
Sterile Filters for Bioprocessing

Sterile filtration with disposable filters is a common operation in bioprocessing and part of every bioburden control strategy. Sterile filtration assures microbial safety of the drug for patients. Learn how to select the best sterilizing filter for your process step.

Viresolve® Pro Solution Family
Virus Filters for Bioprocessing

Viral safety is a key component of drug safety for patients. Virus filtration of cell culture media minimizes the risk of bioreactor contamination, while downstream virus filtration assures viral clearance. Learn how virus filtration reduces risk and enhances viral safety.
