Preventing bacterical, algal, or fungal contamination in fermentors or incubators
- Retains 99.97% of airborne particles >=0.3 µm
- High flow rates with low pressure drop across the filter media
- Allows bi-directional flow
These in-line filter devices are particularly suitable for the sterile venting of fermentors or reactin vessels to prevent airborne particles from entering or exiting the vessel. Applications include tissue culture, in-line filtration, and removal of particulates form gas/air stream. These lightweight filters have a polypropylene housing and are available in disc and capsule formats. The devices contain glass microfiber filtration media, which is mildly hydrophobic for resistance to bacterial growth and has been laminated on both sides to prevent fiber release. Repeatedly autoclavable for ensured sterility.
