The Steamer hollow fiber cartridges are gamma irradiated,
autoclavable, re-usable hollow fiber cartridge, based on a low binding,
antifouling, modified PES hollow fiber membrane.
Similar to the Green Line Single Use HF Cartridges
from WaterSep, the Steamer has an
uniquely low extractable level, eliminating any pre-rinse, (See Figure 1) but is
also in addition autoclavable and compatible with 1M caustic for cleaning and
Cartridges in the Steamer series are available in WaterSep's well known mini-Discover, Discover, Explorer, Investigator and BioProducer formats, which are ideal for exploratory work, process development and production scale applications.
With the Steamer hollow fiber cartridges you
achieve consistent, reliable cell clarification, cell harvest, concentration and
diafiltration, without the hassle of membrane assembly, pre-rinse or additional
hardware. The Steamer series are
available in WaterSep’s wellknown Discover/MiniDiscover, Explorer,
Investigator and BioProducer formats, which makes it ideal for both exploratory
work, process development and production scale applications.
The Steamer hollow fiber cartridges are manufactured in a
completely glycerin free, environmentally friendly process, hence no pre-rinsing
of the membrane is required. This saves valuable time and large consumption of
high purity water or buffer. The Steamer Line offers:
- Ready to use cross-flow filtration - no pre-rinse required.
- Autoclavable up to 3 times.
- 80X reduction in extractables compaired to glycerin condition
- True plug-and-play at its best, connect, use and discard or clean and
- Can be cleaned with 0.5 – 1.0 M NaOH.
- Self contained HF cartridges - no hardware - no installation.
- 100% integrity tested.
- Very cost effective, compared to cassettes.
- A complete line of UF and MF membranes available.
