Pall’s line of SUPRAcap™ capsules and SUPRAdisc™ modules combine the advantages of conventional depth filter sheets with the positive features of enclosed filters. They are ideally suited to provide the range and flexibility necessary to meet process scales from < 1 to 20,000+ liters.

SUPRAcap™ 50 Capsules
Biopharmaceutical Product Data Sheet: Supracap 60 CapsulesSUPRAcap 50 capsules are designed for developing and optimizing a process during scale-up and scale-down studies. They can be used to quickly and accurately determine which series and grade of depth filter media will provide the best performance as well as the necessary filtration area required to meet process volume. SUPRAcap 50 capsules are readily scalable to SUPRAcap 100 capsules, SUPRAdisc I and SUPRAdisc II depth filter modules. They are also available with Seitz® HP sheet media (double-layer) that scales to SUPRAdisc HP filter modules. SUPRAcap 50 capsules are available with a wide selection of Seitz depth filter media for optimal grade selection.

SUPRAcap™ 100 Capsules 
Biopharmaceutical Product Data Sheet: Supracap 100 CapsulesSpecially suited to process development and pilot scale applications. They can be autoclaved and used for various critical applications depending upon the filter media selected. These applications may include cell harvest clarification and protection of sterilizing membranes.


SUPRAcap 100 capsules have been designed to meet industry requirements including autoclaving and low extractables. They offer high flow rates and throughputs and are designed to have minimal hold-up volumes. The translucent shell makes venting and draining easier as liquid levels are visible.

SUPRAcap™ 200 Capsules
Biopharmaceutical Product Data Sheet: Supracap 200 CapsulesIn applications producing and using hazardous or toxic materials such as cytotoxic drugs, catalysts or powdered activated carbon (PAC), SUPRAcap 200 modules offer increased operator protection and simplified process handling. SUPRAcap 200 modules are the first encapsulated, disposable depth filter modules for medium to large scale process filtration.

Supradisc™ I Modules 
Biopharmaceutical Product Data Sheet: Supradisc ModuleSUPRAdisc modules provide up to 5 m2 (54 ft2), the industry’s highest level of filter area per industry standard size module. This enables reduction in capital equipment costs by reducing the number of modules required.

The more rigid design allows up to four (4) filters to be stacked vertically for unparalleled density, up to 20 m2 (215 ft2) of available surface area. A wide range of module styles and sizes, and filter media enables SUPRAdisc modules to be applied to nearly any application.

High performance features:

  • Maximum throughput for biological, bioprocess and pharmaceutical filtration.
  • High purity pharmaceutical grade depth filter media optimized for low endotoxin and low extractables levels.
  • High dirt holding capacity combined with very low protein adsorption and long service life.
  • Excellent removal of a wide range of suspended particles down to sub-micron size in a wide range of cell culture applications.
  • SUPRAdisc HP modules ensure high protection for subsequent sterile filters as well as chromatography columns.

SUPRAdisc™ II Modules
Biopharmaceutical Product Data Sheet: Supradisc II ModulesCombines the filtration performance of Seitz media and the structural robustness of interlocking dual drainage plates. This provides the most robust design available in the market today. The dual drainage plate design of the SUPRAdisc II modules optimizes the flow distribution by providing unobstructed process flow. These advancements in module design also enhance module integrity as well as superior resistance to back pressure failures of the filter media.

SUPRAdisc™ AKS Carbon Impregnated Depth Filter Modules
Biopharmaceutical Product Data Sheet: Supradisc AKS Carbon Impregnated Depth Filter ModulesSUPRAdisc and SUPRAcap modules containing Seitz AKS filter media provide a streamlined process requiring only a single step. No additional mixing, filtration, or cleaning steps are required.
