Filtration and separation processes in the pharmaceutical industry are critical, not only to ensure products are adequately purified and fit for consumption, but also to optimize process economics and prevent loss of valuable product.
Filtration in the pharmaceutical industry is a readily understood process ranging from clarification of cough syrups and linctuses through to cold sterilization of heat labile injectable products. Other applications include sterile filtration of air and feedstocks to fermentation processes, filtration of solvents for tableting processes, tableting powder handling and recovery systems, sterile filtration of services including water, air and process gases, sterile filtration of ophthalmic solutions and sterile filtration of serum and growth media. The industry is well regulated and it is important that any filters used in critical applications are fully supported with validation guides.
