Virus Filtration Controller
A small form-factor, automated single-use dead-end filtration unit for Planova and Planova BioEX filters.
Your facility has adopted single-use technology and requires problem-free virus filtration. Our Planova SU-VFC automates the virus filtration unit operation in a single-use format. With a flexible operating range, 21CFR Part 11 compliant automation platform, and gamma-irradiated tubing sets, the Planova SU-VFC enables reliable virus filtration for Planova 15N, 20N, 35N and BioEX filters in a small footprint that is ideal for single-use cGMP manufacturing areas.
Mitigate Risk with Intuitive, Customized Automation
The Planova SU-VFC includes several risk-mitigating features and design elements to ensure that your high-value biotherapeutic is safely, reproducibly and reliably filtered batch after batch – including our automation platform that allows for intuitive configuration of all virus filtration process steps.
Modest Size, Bold Functionality
With a footprint of a modest 660 mm x 1219 mm (26 in. x 48 in.), the Planova SU-VFC can be installed in almost any downstream processing area and is fully 21CFR Part 11 capable. Universal gamma-irradiated tubing sets can be used for any of our Planova filters. By incorporating the capability to perform integrity testing, the Planova SU-VFC permits simplified implementation of Planova filters in your process.
