  • Non-woven electrostatic media for chromatographic separation of biological particles

    The filtration and separation of biological particles has been estimated as 40% of the cost in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals. Liquid chromatography that is the principal method for separating biological particles uses a permanent phase of ultrafine adsorbent particles such as porous silica or resin spheres with particle sizes down to about 1 micron. Speed and resolution are two competing ...

  • Minimising Risks to Air Quality and Regulatory Compliance With Total Filter Management

    It has been shown in recent studies that as much as 25% of the total site operating budget (excluding raw material costs) for a typical medium-large dosage-form manufacturing facility will be spent on compliance measures for internal quality systems and external regulatory activities. (1) Market realities indicate that the pharmaceutical companies will need to address the overall cost of ...

  • Particle removal efficiency of Nano alumina fiber filters

    A 2 nanometer alumina fiber is combined with a microglass fiber to produce a nonwoven filter. Its pore size is 2 microns, yet it is functionally rated at 0.03 microns. Data are presented showing dirt holding capacity and filtration efficiency for particles from 0.001 to 7 microns. The filters have high retention for micron size silica dust, bacteria, virus, DNA/RNA, tannin and latex spheres. ...
