Biotechnology for a Better World

New material capacities and improved component performance have enhanced the way biotechnological processes work at industrial scales. Fermentation is one of the principal procedures conducted in biotechnology facilities. This process is multi-disciplinary and is applicable in sectors as diverse as the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries. Crystar® FT has supported the innovative trajectory of fermentation processes by enhancing the performance of fermentation broth and cell harvesting clarification, where a desirable biomass is separated from the intermediate broth. 

Fermentation broth microfiltration improves the quality of biomass products with improved material yields due to the unmatched performance of advanced recrystallized-silicon carbide (R-SiC) filtration membranes. Crystar® FT can resist aggressive media with leading filtrate flux capacities for demanding slurries and corrosive agents. The sharp selectivity of Crystar FT offers the best pre-filtration option in the recovery processes of proteins, active pharmaceutical compounds, and other valuable nano products.

Crystar® microfiltration is also poised to improve the performance of conventional microorganism removal and yeast separation in biochemical reactions. The negatively-charged membrane surface and well-controlled pore sizes, allow for the optimization of the filtration of organic particulates from liquid feeds, enabling facilities to effectively eliminate contaminants from various filtrates.

The inherent benefits of Crystar® FT yields optimal benefits in biotechnology applications. Contact us if you would like more information on how to optimize your microfiltration process using recrystallized-silicon carbide ceramic membranes.
