The Pellicon® Capsule is the first of its kind -- a true single-use TFF device that comes ready to process in minutes. Self-contained, it employs an easy-to-use, holderless format and is supplied gamma sterilized with preservative-free reverse osmosis water.
This new addition to the Pellicon® family shares the same unbeatable performance of Pellicon® cassettes and are linearly scalable, making it easy to transition between both formats.
Pellicon® Capsules are ideal for the filtration of solutions that require single-use capabilities, including
- Rapid batch turnaround for higher plant productivity
- Lower risks of product cross-contamination
- Self-contained device for increased operator safety
- Process flexibility for multi-product manufacturing facilities
- Optimum use of time and resources from minimal device preparation
Pellicon® Capsules with Ultracel® membrane are designed for excellent product retention, recovery, and high yields. Ultracel®void-free composite membranes combine ultra-low protein binding, low fouling, and organic solvent resistance with superb mechanical strength.
- Plug’n play, holderless design -- easy to install, safe to remove
- Gamma sterilized and preservative-free -- ready to process in minutes
- True single-use, self-contained capsule -- fast, safe, and flexible batch turnaround
- Proven Ultracel® membrane and C screen -- high recovery, superior mass transfer, solvent resistance
- Pellicon® TFF proven performance -- true linear scalability within Pellicon® TFF families
- Monoclonal antibodies
- Antibody drug conjugates
- Recombinant and non-recombinant proteins
The Pellicon® Capsule Stand is specially designed for convenience during use. It accommodates up to two 0.1 m2 capsules in parallel or three 0.1 m2 capsules in series on one side and one 0.5 m2 capsule on the opposite side.
