Mott has announced the development of their ground breaking, all-metal sterilizing grade membrane for medical filtration applications. The membrane is produced using nano-materials and a proprietary manufacturing process developed by Mott engineers. The membrane meets or exceeds a 0.2 μm filtration challenge and meets ASTM F838-05 for bacterial retention. This material is ideally suited for applications in medical, life sciences, biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries and can be used in implantable devices as well as for filtration of liquids or gases in which cleanliness and removal of bacteria is critical. The filter is intended for circumstances requiring ultra-fine, sub-micron filtration. It is made of stainless steel or titanium and is capable of achieving extremely efficient levels of filtration and separation (> 7 LRV @ 0.2 micron).
Mott’s sterilizing grade filters offer a unique solution for industry devices that require a stronger, more durable and longer lasting product. It is biocompatible, impervious to solvents, and compatible with most organic compounds and complex drug chemistries. Mott’s sintered porous metal products are currently being integrated in various implantable devices, as filters to prevent plugging of catheters, in drug delivery devices, in medical instrumentation, as bacteria filters, as sparging devices for cell culture processing, and as gas flow restrictor devices for gas delivery in life-critical systems.
