|Pellicon® Laboratory Systems, Holders and Assemblies|
|When a Pellicon Holder is ordered, what do I receive?||The holders are supplied with a socket wrench, 3/4" sanitary clamp adapters, clamps, and gaskets. The pressure gauges need to be ordered separately by ordering catalog number XX4200075. Only one 0- 100 psi analog gauge is supplied with this number, and it is recommended to operate with two gauges, one for the feed and one for the retentate. Conversely, order the appropriate Pellicon fitting kit which contains the pressure gauges, fittings, clamps, and valves for connecting the pump to the holder.
|Are the TFF membranes autoclavable or steam sterilizable?||The membranes for Pellicon® 3 cassettes are not autoclavable or steam sterilizable. However, a chemical sanitization can be done; refer to the user guide for recommendations.|

Advanced, high-performance cassettes ideal for today’s higher titer therapeutic antibodies as well as the more demanding filtration processes require higher operating pressures, temperatures and caustic cleaning regimes.
Pellicon® 3 cassettes with Ultracel® membranes are the optimum tangential flow filtration devices for the filtration of monoclonal antibodies and other therapeutic proteins.
Pellicon® 3 cassettes with Biomax® membranes are the optimum tangential flow filtration devices for the filtration of solutions containing albumin, hormones, vaccines and growth factors.
Pellicon® 3 Cassettes are favorites in both laboratory and large-scale production environments and come loaded with your choice of the following leading-edge membranes:
- Ultracel® Membranes – designed for the filtration of therapeutic proteins (such as monoclonal antibodies) and recombinant and non-recombinant proteins.
- Biomax® Membranes – perfect for the filtration of monoclonal antibodies and solutions containing albumin, hormones, vaccines and growth factors.
Choice of feed channel turbulence promoting screens to best match your process requirements:
- A Screen (tight screen)
- C Screen (coarse screen)
- D Screen (coarse screen for high viscosity)
- Rugged & reliable – ideally suited for today’s more demanding filtration processes
- High performance – produces excellent resolution, yields and back-pressure resistance.
- Optimum product recovery – thanks to proven membrane technology
- Void-free technology – leading-edge membranes resolve virtually any separation challenge
- Defect-free, superior adhesion – Ultracel®uses composite membranes cast on a microporous substrate
- Automated manufacturing – delivers unbeatable performance, consistency and reliability
- Easy installation & care – simple to install and maintain
