Clarigard® filters' 99.99% retention rating characteristic makes them ideal for the protection of critical downstream process steps such as membrane filters or chromatography columns. The graded-density depth structure of Clarigard filter media provides maximum filtration capacity, and the all-polypropylene construction offers low extractables levels and broad chemical compatibility.
The 0.2 µm and 0.3 µm filters will easily extend the capacity of sterilizing-grade filters. Clarigard high-performance prefilters consistently produce a 1–2 log bio-burden reduction.
Clarigard cartridge filters provide high throughput with minimal differential pressure. Cartridges are robust, strong, resilient and are designed to withstand multiple steam-in-place cycles.

Clarigard filters are designed, developed, and manufactured in accordance with a Quality Management System approved by an accredited registering body to an ISO® 9000 Quality Systems Standard and are shipped with a Certificate of Quality. Each cartridge filter is supported by a Validation Guide for compliance with regulatory requirements.
For traceability and easy identification, each filter is marked with identifying characteristics.
Multiple Formats Available
Clarigard filters are available in two formats, five pore sizes, and multiple configurations that vary by filtration area and the type of inlet/outlet connection. Small scale filter capsules are available as a selection tool when evaluating several media configurations for use in clarifying process fluids. These devices have been developed to minimize hold-up volume when evaluating multiple media configurations.
