    Product Details
    • Zeta Plus™ LP Series filter cartridges are designed for manufacturing of biological products such as blood and blood products, vaccines, allergen extracts, and cellular harvests
    • Reduced potential of 1,3 Beta-glucan interference in product endotoxin testing
    • Full range of scalable single-use cartridges enables predictable performance from the laboratory to commercial production
    • Non-pyrogenic filter medium is unlikely to cause false positive results
    • High contaminant holding capacity provides economical filtration and reliable particle reduction
    • Self-contained, single-use disposable cartridge modules allows reduced labor for changeouts and eliminates cleaning validation

    Zeta Plus™ LP Series filter cartridges are designed for manufacturing of biologicals and have a reduced potential of yielding false positives in drug product endotoxin testing resulting from 1,3 Beta-glucan interference in LAL assays. Filter cartridges and housings are available in 8”, 12”, and 16” diameter providing a full range of scale-up and production options.

    The Zeta Plus™ LP Series filter cartridges are designed for use in blood fractionation applications.
    Zeta Plus™ Filter Cartridges and Capsules

    Zeta Plus™ LP Series filter media comprises a mixture of high surface area inorganic particles, cellulose, and a positively charged crosslinking polymer. This media is designed for relatively low organic extractable levels by aggressively extracting the cellulose fibers. The combination of filtration efficiency and throughput results from the balance between porosity, depth, and the relatively low level anion exchange capacity: removing some negatively charged soluble contaminants and sub-micron particles via anion exchange, and larger particles by mechanical sieving.

    Pharmaceutical Grade Product
    The Zeta Plus™ LP Series filter cartridges are designed for use in blood fractionation applications. The effluent characteristics of the Zeta Plus LP Series Filter media has been tested following a number of protocols contained in the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) compendia. The Zeta Plus LP Series filter media has a reduced potential of yielding false positives in product endotoxin testing resulting from 1,3 beta-glucan interference in LAL (Endotoxin) assays.

    The media and cartridge products are manufactured globally in facilities with Quality Management Systems registered to ISO 9001 and 13485 to help ensure consistency in meeting product specifications. The manufacturing process, quality controls and regulatory oriented compliance reports are documented in a Drug Master File on record with the FDA.

    Product Design
    The Zeta Plus™ LP Series filter cartridges are available with single layer media. Zeta Plus cartridges are constructed from individual cells of Zeta Plus LP series filter media bonded using molded edge seals. The cells are assembled together with polypropylene ring seals under predetermined compression and unitized by three, 316 stainless steel bands.

    A full range of scalable filters enable predictable performance from laboratory to production. The BC25 laboratory capsule with 25 cm2 filter media is designed for media grade screening using small liquid volumes. Filter cartridges and sanitary housings are available in 8", 12" and 16" diameter, with surface areas ranging from 650 cm2 to 3.9 m2 per cartridge, enabling predictable scale-up and full scale production.
