Porvair: Your partner in filtration and separation

Manufacturing of our high performance cost effective products is underpinned by our quality assurance programme, cGMP practices and clean room environment to ensure products meet the stringent requirements of the Pharmaceutical, Generics and Veterinary Medicines industry.

Material conformity and validation

The bio-safety of all materials in the manufacture of our cartridges is assured by FDA approval and USP Class VI testing.

Our membrane cartridges have been tested and shown to be 100% retentive in line with HIMA, PDA and ASTM F838-05 guidelines for Brevundimonas diminuta challenge (0.2 micron grade). To guarantee the bacterial retention performance of every cartridge, non-destructive integrity testing is performed on each individual module prior to release. A comprehensive validation guide for our cartridges is available on request.
