Stax™ Disposable Depth Filter SystemsSource: Pall Life Sciences - BioPharmaceuticals
Stax capsules, utilizing Seitz ® high performance depth filter media and the patented Supradisc™ II module design, are ideally suited for demanding prefiltration and clarification biopharmaceutical applications. This ready-to-use platform is an ideal tool to streamline your process filtration applications. Stax disposable depth filter capsules increase process efficiencies and address the needs for simplicity, safety, speed, and intuitive operation. Optimized with a small foot print design, the Stax platform makes for an easy to handle and operate process step.
Scalable in size and performance to meet lab, pilot and process needs, Pall’s Stax disposable capsules enable greater flexibility and ease of use than traditional depth filter technology. With three interchangeable capsule sizes ranging from 0.25 m2 to 2.0 m2 (2.70 ft 2 to 21.5 ft 2). Stax capsules permit incremental increases in process fluid volume and filter area through the use of this modular design.
Placed into one of three different sized chassis, Pall’s single use Stax capsules eliminate the use of stainless steel housings which require costly cleaning and cleaning validation. Stax system chassis are designed for assembly and use by a single operator and provide a logically conceived disposable platform in which the operator can load, operate and unload in an ergonomically designed vertical orientation. The ability to operate with two different media grades in one chassis (serial filtration) further improves the flexibility and economy of operating the Stax platform. With simple, straight forward and familiar features, the Stax platform eliminates the risk of error or mishap and enables greater process success. Integrating Pall’s Allegro™ platforms into a comprehensive single-use system will further maximize the overall benefits of implementing a single-use strategy and the Stax platform.
