Ultrafiltration (UF) membranes have a high density skin layer for less fouling and a fairly open outer support structure for increased filtration rates.
Microfiltration (MF) membranes have a retention defining microporous outer skin and a more open inner layer for increased filtration with higher recoveries.
Repligen develops and manufactures products for the biopharmaceutical industry under an ISO 9001 quality management system. We focus on the timely delivery of high quality, consistent and robust products, to ensure business continuity for our customers.
With a broad choice of single-use module configurations, hollow filter membranes from Repligen use advanced hydrophilic membrane filtration chemistry to provide higher flux rates for faster processing times, excellent selectivity for separation applications, and low protein binding for higher product yields than other membrane chemistries.
