Sartorius Stedim Biotech launches new single-use Sartocon loop assemblies

5th October 2016

Sartorius Stedim Biotech has announced the launch of two single-use Sartocon loop assemblies that incorporate integrated polyethersulfone (PESU) membranes.

These new benchtop and production scale filtration assemblies have been designed for rapid and safe ultrafiltration of biologics and vaccines, and can be utilised in a wide range of applications.

The single-use Sartocon self-contained filter loop assembly is intended for use with the FlexAct UD control unit, while the Sartocon Slice bag loop assembly is designed for the Sartoflow Alpha plus SU benchtop crossflow system.

Both assemblies are gamma-sterilised and ready to use, with the integrated PESU membrane pre-wetted and flushed, saving hours in setup and validation time, while eliminating the cost of using buffers and purified water to prepare the membrane.

Their fully enclosed designs mean these assemblies are ideal for safely purifying vaccines and recombinant proteins, as well as monoclonal antibody manufacturing. They are suitable for use in cGMP environments for process development, clinical trials and small-scale production batches.

Frank Meyeroltmanns, expert for crossflow filtration at Sartorius Stedim Biotech, said: "We estimate that using these new single-use PESU membrane-based assemblies will reduce processing time by around 60 percent and could save up to 2,000 euros per batch on buffer and water costs."
