HarvestMax™ One-Step Cell Harvest Clarification Filters
HarvestMax™ vacuum filters are used for the prefiltration and clarification of difficult-to-filter cell culture harvests, conditioned media, and bioreactor productions. These filters will dramatically reduce the premature fouling of standard vacuum membrane filters caused by CHO, hybridoma, and 293 harvests at high cell density and/or low cell viability. HarvestMax™ can accelerate your workflow by eliminating the time-consuming centrifugation step, and costly use of multiple vacuum filter units due to fouling.
HarvestMax™ is a single-step, single-use, prefiltration vacuum filter for clarification of biological fluids
The patent pending design of the HarvestMax™ features a pleated depth media that provides massive surface area and graded density retention to enhance the performance of traditional bottle-top filters. Dead cells and cell culture components are efficiently removed.
HarvestMax™ can be used with standard bottle-top filters, but it can also be purchased as a complete assembly with the our VACUMax filter and storage bottle. HarvestMax™ vacuum filters may be further customized for your application by tailoring the choice of pre-filter material and its nominal retention characteristics to enhance filtration performance.
For added efficiency, add our VacuumCradle ring stand manifold for hands-free operation and high-throughput processing of multiple harvests simultaneously. Need a closed-system reservoir for your larger-scale productions? See our pre-sterilized XpressVent™ disposable vented, collapsible, recyclable, LDPE containers that can be directly connected to a HarvestMax™ unit.
