We combine two asymmetric polyethersulfone (PES) membrane layers with Advanced Pleat Technology in manufacturing LifeASSURE™ PDA Series Filter Cartridges, creating a filter that provides high throughput and fast flow. These filters have applications in pre-filtration and sterilizing filtration in the pharmaceutical, biological, and bioprocess industries where low protein binding is critical.

Membrane Know-how As we manufacture LifeASSURE™ PDA Series cartridge filters, we incorporate two layers of polyethersulfone membrane. The highly asymmetric upstream layer provides prefiltration capacity for the downstream layer, which is also asymmetric. Together, the membrane layers create a gradient membrane pore morphology that provides relatively high contaminant capacity and fast flow rates in a sterilizing grade membrane filter. Advanced Pleat Technology Design LifeASSURE™ PDA Series cartridge filters also feature our innovative Advanced Pleat Technology construction that helps extend service life. This design technology is intended to increase the useful surface area while maintaining open flow paths between media pleats. Transforming Your Science to Life LifeASSURE™ PDA filters meet 0.2 and 0.1 μm rated filtration requirements for critical sterilization applications, such as: Biologicals Orals and topicals Vaccines Parenterals (SVP, LVP) Ophthalmics Final 0.1 and 0.2 μm sterilizing filtration Chromatography column protection Serum and blood fractions Solvent filtration Bulk pharmaceutical chemicals Media and fermenter feed streams Cell culture fluids High protein feed streams Reagents and Buffers High purity DI water and WFI systems We manufacture LifeASSURE™ PDA Series filter cartridges using all-polypropylene structural components (end caps, adapters, media support, inner core and outer cage). We offer LifeASSURE™ PDA filter cartridges in multiple lengths to match the dimension and sealing requirements for most cartridge housings currently available. Engineered for Quality and Reliability Our Quality Management System is approved by an accredited registering body to the ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2003 Quality Management Systems, and the cartridges are 100% forward flow integrity tested prior to shipment. We ship all LifeASSURE™ PDA cartridge and capsule filters with a Certificate of Quality affirming compliance with manufactur
