Wednesday, 15 June, 2016 | Supplied by: Sartorius Australia Pty Ltd



Sartorius Stedim Biotech (SSB) has launched Virosart Media for virus retention in cell culture media. With the media filter, the company offers a fast solution for manufacturers to reduce the risk of virus contamination resulting from raw materials, such as chemically defined media, during fermentation.

The first product of the family is a lab filter with a filtration area of 5 cm2 for downscale, flow and capacity studies. The single-use filter provides a high level of safety for customers’ upstream processes as it is qualified for >4 log10 reduction of small, non-enveloped viruses (eg, MVM) and as a mycoplasma and leptospira retentive filter. Mid-scale (0.29 m2) and process filters (1 m2 and 3 m2) will also be qualified as a sterile filter based on the current ASTM guideline.
