Filter Integrity Tester To Minimize Health, Safety and Environmental Risks
Sartorius Stedim Biotech (SSB) has launched its new Sartocheck 5 Plus filter integrity tester.
Designed for use in downstream processing, this new integrity tester is the latest development in the established line of Sartocheck units. According to Sartorius the new Sartocheck 5 Plus features the most advanced functions for ensuring maximum data integrity and compliance with future requirements of quality risk management, such as the upcoming Annex 1 of the European Medicines Agency (EMA). The new filter tester improves the detectability of operator errors, improper test set-ups and out-of-tolerance environmental conditions. This advanced filter tester has been designed to cover the complete range of integrity testing from small syringe filters up to large multi-round housings and crossflow cassettes, with diffusion rates of up to thousands of milliliters per minute. In addition, the automatic test time feature for diffusion and water intrusion, along with accelerated bubble point testing, reduces overall test time. Parallel bubble point testing is also a significant time saver as this function enables up to 10 small filters to be checked with one Sartocheck 5 Plus.
