The innovative line of Zeta Plus Encapsulated single-use depth filter capsules has been extended to include our SP, LA, LP, ZA and DELI media grades. This line extension allows for the use of the Zeta Plus Encapsulated System in a wider variety of applications in bio-pharmaceuticals. Single-layer Zeta Plus Encapsulated filter capsules are available in a small, single-cell (0.23 m² filter area) capsule configuration and a large, multi-cell (2.5 m² filter area) capsule configuration.
The Zeta Plus Encapsulated System is a single-use depth filtration system designed for the bioprocessing industry where upstream cell clarification or downstream impurity removal is required. The Zeta Plus Encapsulated System for production scale biomanufacturing features ergonomically designed capsule holders that can be pivoted between the horizontal and vertical positions, allowing for convenient loading and unloading, minimal fluid spills during unloading and full utilization of the filter media.
