General description

The Biopak® C unit is an easy-to-install, disposable ultrafiltration cartridge designed to produce a final, in-line purification step for immunoassay and clinical chemistry analyzers on the market today, providing improved laboratory efficiency and performance with lower overall running costs.
The cartridge efficiently removes bacterial by-products such as alkaline phosphatase (ALP) from analyzer feed water used to dilute reagents, make blanks, and rinse tubing and probes.
The Biopak® C ultrafiltration cartridge is composed of polysulfone hollow fibers. This membrane optimizes the rejection of bacterial ALP and bacteria while maintaining a high flow rate.


When fed with high-quality pure water, the Biopak® C ultrafiltration cartridge efficiently removes bacterial by-products such as ALP, to provide optimum-quality water for use in ALP-sensitive immunoassays.

Features and Benefits

• Produces ALP-free water (< 1 μUnits/μL).
• Ensures bacteria levels below 10 cfu/mL (typically < 1 cfu/mL).
• Designed to remove endotoxins, and to perform a pyrogen log reduction value superior or equal to 4, for pyrogen feed concentration between 1000 and 10 000 EU/mL, and a nuclease reduction from 1 μg/mL to less than 0.01 ng/mL at 1 bar feed water pressure.
• Supports stable assay baselines, resulting in better assay reliability.
• Reduces the need for frequent analyzer calibration.
• Eliminates the need for frequent analyzer decontamination that results in costly downtime.
• Includes: Self-adhesive label.
