GMPTEC offers a range of different filter cartridge types and sizes. The matching GMPTEC filter cartridge for your existing housing can easily be determined by the part- or serial number of the currently used filter. We also supply all parts required for the installation process, like gaskets and clamps.
Filtration within GMP Processes
The GMPTEC filtration category is subdivided into different types of filters, as well as single-use and multi-use products. The main difference of these filter types is their purpose of application, which often requires different construction materials and housing designs. Regardless of the individual type of items, all of our filtration goods meet the necessary regulatory standards and are primarily designed for biopharmaceutical applications.
The right filter choice for each individual filtration process is depending on many different parameters. Our application engineers will gladly take care of your inquiry and determine the ideal solution for your process.
Our portfolio includes capsule filters, disk filters, filter cartridges, filter housing, TFF-filters and products for vacuum filtration. Custom items and special designs are available upon request. Information regarding the different configurations of our filters are available on the specific product pages. If data sheets are needed, feel free to send us an e-mail and we´ll gladly provide the requested documents!
In general, the following filter materials are available:
- PES Membrane
- PVDF Membrane
- PTFE Membrane
- PP Membrane
- Nylon Membrane
- Fiberglass Membrane
Which filter material is best for each individual process is mainly determined by process parameters like sterilization method, media, filtration volume and working pressure. Additionally, price-performance ratio can also be an important factor when choosing the right filter.
GMPTEC filtration products are commonly used in the following processes:
- Sterile Filtration
- Buffer Filtration
- Virus Filtration
- Tangential Flow Filtration
- Ultra Filtration
- Sterile Ventilation
- Bioburden Reduction
- Vacuum Filtration
Feel free to reach out to us in case you need assistance, choosing the right filtration product. We are always available for further support and specific advice, based on your individual process requirements.
GMPTEC also offers the possibility to pre-assemble filters into complete assemblies, gamma sterilize them and ship them as “ready-to-use” systems. Just send us a draft and we gladly provide a technical drawing and quote for your individual system.
Frequently Asked Questions about Filtration:
The bottle volume, used tubing and sterilization method are the basic information to determine the correct filter. Since the choice is always also depending on the individual process, it’s recommended to consult one of our technical engineers.
When choosing single-use filters, it’s most important to not select oversized filters or transfer them from another application. A smaller filter is generally less expensive than a larger one of the same type. Additionally, you should be using filters with hose barbs whenever possible. This allows to cut out additional components like sanitary clamps, gaskets and sanitary flange adapters, which would increase the overall costs.
