Sartoclear 16 Module, S040, FA-Adapt, 1pc

Sartoclear® filters are cellulose-based depth filters developed for demanding clarification applications in the biotechnological and pharmaceutical industries.

Various device formats are available to serve you from first the steps, throughout clinical phases and up to large scale manufacturing while always keeping the same filter material.

Item no.:  29LS040-16-FA

Availability (ex works):  On Request

Sartoclear® Depth Filter modules are stackable, lenticular shaped depth filters for use in stainless steel housings, which are often used in large scale manufacturing facilities for biologicals.


  • Mammalian cell culture harvests
  • Microbial lysates
  • Removal of precipitates from sera and plasma
  • Particle and colloid removal from process intermediates
  • Media Filtration
Grade Description Application examples1,2
DL90 Very coarse primary grade on top of a coarse secondary filter for filtrations with high solid concentrations2 Primary clarification of mammalian cell cultures, insect cell cultures, microbial fermentations, vaccines
DL75 Pure cellulose pre-filter combined with a coarse secondary filter Primary clarification of mammalian cell cultures, insect cell cultures, microbial fermentations, vaccines
DL60 Coarse primary grade with a secondary fine filtration grade for lower to moderate solid concentrations Post-perfusion bioreactors, vaccines
DL20 Fine filtration grade combined with a standard bioburden reduction grade for the removal of particles Post centrifuge mammalian cell cultures, post primary depth filtration, process precipitates
DL10 Fine filtration grade followed by an very tight secondary filter for the removal of high concentrations of small particles Post centrifuge microbial (e.g. E. coli) lysates, post primary depth filtration step, process precipitates
1 The listed examples are indicative and need to be confirmed by small scale tests
2 Sartorius recommends Sartoclear® Dynamics for cell cultures above 5 % WCW
