The filtration of pharmaceutical and biological fluids
requires a complete understanding of the filtration process, including both
filter media and filter equipment. ErtelAlsop is the only US based
manufacturer of a complete line of depth filtration products from sanitary
laboratory equipment to sanitary production equipment, pharmaceutical grade
filter paper and double O-ring plug-in style Pak® lenticular cartridges.
Cellulose based depth filter media provide a highly effective solution for
clarifying or polishing pharmaceutical products such as syrups, Large
Volume Parenterals (LVPs), Small Volume Parenterals (SVPs), Active
Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs), and biological products such as
blood plasma, blood fractions, animal sera, fermentation broths,
cell culture media and veterinary products. Depth filters are also widely used as a prefilter to final membrane filters. They are highly effective in minimizing
the particulate challenge placed on the membrane, thereby providing ideal
operating conditions to allow the membrane to realize its full potential.
