SuporLife® 200 Cartridge Filters
SUPORLIFE 200 cartridges are validated,
sterilizing-grade filters featuring two
layers of SUPOR® polyethersulfone
membrane with an upstream 0.8 µm
layer for prefiltration and protection of the
downstream 0.2 µm sterilizing grade
layer. SUPORLIFE media is low preservative and protein binding and can provide
higher flow rates and longer life with
biological solutions.
