Sartobind® S Jumbo 5 L, 8 mm bed height

Sartobind® S membrane adsorber units combine the advantages of convective media and ion exchange chromatography for rapid and easy contaminant removal or capture of virus and virus like particles.

Order Number:  96IEXS42E3ESS

Availability:  On Request

Sartobind® S membrane adsorbers display a macro-porous structure with pore size of > 3 µm. Sulfonic acid ligands are bound covalently to the complete internal surface of the membrane, resulting in separation media of high binding capacity combined with exceptional high flow rates.


The S membrane adsorber is successfully used in FDA-approved drug manufacture to remove host cell proteins at high flow rates. As a cation exchanger it displays not only aggregate removal capabilities but typically at least ten-fold higher binding capacity for viruses and virus-like-particles (VLP).


The Sartobind S adsorber speeds up the production process by high flow rate and opens new opportunities for the purification of therapeutic proteins and vaccines.

  • High speed host cell protein removal up to 30 bed volumes/ min
  • Aggregate removal

Easy to use:

  • Plug and play devices from 0.08 ml to 5 l
  • Can be used like a filter
  • Flow rate up to 30 bed volumes/min
  • Disposable or re-usable
