Pegasus™ SV4 Virus Removal Filter Cartridges

Constant, stable flow-rate performance filters combining efficient, high viral clearance with significantly-reduced processing costs

With the ever-present risk of virus contamination in biologic products, potential sources of virus contamination of bio - technology products include viruses associated with cell lines (endogenous viruses), or viruses introduced into the cell line or product from culture medium or during the production process (adventitious viruses). Viruses could also potentially be present in donations for plasma derivatives. Pegasus SV4 Virus Removal Filter Cartridges are direct flow filters combining robust, high viral clearance of parvovirus and larger viruses with high throughput capacity and demonstrating constant, stable flow-rates in both dilute and complex/concentrated biological fluids. Such consistent, constant flow rates and outstanding throughput performance allows a very high degree of process control.
Features Benefits
