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.
De-risk Your Clinical and Commercial Scale Virus Filtration
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.
Modest Size, Bold Functionality
With a footprint of a modest 864 mm x 686 mm (34 in. x 27 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.
