Virosart® Media

First virus retentive filter for cell culture media.

Protect your cell culture media from virus contaminations with the 20 nm high flux PES Virosart® Media. The filter retains ≥ 4 LRV for small non-enveloped viruses like MVM or Vesivirus and ≥ 6 LRV for large enveloped viruses.

Application:

  • Target molecule: The main application for Virosart® Media is virus retentive filtration of chemically defined cell culture media.
  • Virus clearance: Virosart® Media targets the removal of small non-enveloped adventitious viruses (20 nm) e.g. MVM or vesivirus from chemically defined cell culture media.
  • Positioning: Virosart® Media is used after the media preparation step itself before transferring the media into the bioreactor. This can be operated either as in-line filtration (e.g. perfusion) or batch filtration. Performance of the Virosart® Media is independent of the use of powder or liquid media but could be strongly impacted by the media itself. Virosart® Media is optimized for chemically defined media. Protein transmission for mAbs and recombinant proteins is not given for this filter.

Product benefits:

  • Robust virus clearance: Virosart® Media provides high virus safety to the bioreactor as it is qualified for ≥ 4 LRV (Log10 reduction value) of small non-enveloped viruses (e.g. MVM) and ≥ 6 LRV for large enveloped viruses.
  • Short processing times: Based on the optimized Polyethersulfone membrane, Virosart® Media provides highest flow rates and excellent capacity for cell culture media (e.g. ≥ 1000 L/m2 in 4 h).
  • Smart process transfer: The hollow fiber format supplies highest consistency and scalability from lab to process scale.
  • Cost efficiency: The high packing density of the elements combines extremely low hold up with low footprint requirements. 
  • Ready to use: The sterile delivery secures ease of use as well as fast installation of the filter elements.
  • Ease of use: Virosart® HF are tested for integrity using a water-based diffusion test, e.g. based on the Sartocheck® technology of Sartorius Stedim Biotech
