Main applications

KFM.K+ Capsule is used in medicine and biopharmacy

  • For polishing and sterilization of small and medium volumes injectables, infusion solutions, culture medium.
  • For removal of bacterial endotoxins (pyrogens) from aqueous solutions.
  • For finish treatment of water for injection.
  • For replacing disc filters 293 mm diameter.

In other industries in ultra pure water points-of-use (removal of bacteria, endotoxins, viruses, colloids).

Sterilization

Sterilization of Capsules is performed by autoclaving at temperature 121°С for 30 minutes after attainment of set-point temperature.

KFM.K+ Capsules are able to withstand at least 5 sterilization cycles by autoclaving at P = 0,1 MPa and t=121 ± 1°С. Note! It is prohibited to sterilize Capsule by steam-in-line.

*It is necessary to perform integrity testing of Capsules after every autoclaving cycle in case of sterilizing filtration and re-using. The integrity testing can be performed using automatic integrity test devices, for example TECHNOCHECK series.

Safety

Quality and Certification 

All membrane filter elements used for production of KFM.K+ Capsules are subjected to wash out from organic and mechanical impurities with high-purity water and to 100% integrity control.

KFM.K+ capsules are added to the Register of Medical Devices of the Ministry of health of the Russian Federation.

The capsules are certified for use in Medical Industry and Sanitary and Epidemiological Station, they are authorized to use in Food industry. Safety of filter cartridges is determined by a series of sanitary and chemical tests, and toxicology tests in compliance with GOST R ISO 10993.1-99, GOST R ISO 10993.5-99, GOST R ISO 10993.10-00.
