Preparation Note

Sterilization Method
Gamma compatible to 45 kGy; 3 autoclave cycles of 60 min @ 123 °C; not in-line steam sterilizable

This product was manufactured with a Millipore Express® membrane which meets the criteria for a "non-fiber releasing" filter as defined in 21 CFR 210.3 (b) (6).

Analysis Note

Bacterial Retention
Samples were quantitatively retentive of a minimum Brevundimonas diminuta challenge concentration of 1 x 10⁷ CFU/cm² using ASTM® F838 methodology.

After sterilization and a controlled water flush of 1.0 L, samples exhibited less than 500 ppb TOC per USP <64>> and less than 1.3 µS/cm per USP <64>> at 25 °C.

Will meet the USP Oxidizable Substances Test requirements after a water flush of ≥1 L
