Save up to 70% Processing Time and Work Space with Ready-to-use Membrane Chromatography

Sartobind® membrane technology allows you to shift from slow and oversized expensive columns to small, single-use capsules. These membrane adsorbers are ready to use and save you a lot of time: Switch to single-use chromatography and you'll be able to eliminate packing, cleaning and revalidation steps.

Now Sartobind® scales up to 100 L of membrane

As membrane chromatography processes grow in size, multiple Sartobind® cassettes of 0.8 or 1.6 L volume can now be used to accommodate the needed process scale. Three different stainless steel holders are available for maximum membrane volumes of up to 20, 50, or 100 L. The fluid path within the cassettes is the same as for Sartobind® capsules, so process development and small scale data can be extrapolated to the new format. Scaling up has never been easier!


75% Buffer Savings

Sartobind® Q and STIC®

Efficiently remove contaminants such as DNA, endotoxin, host cell proteins, and viruses up to 30 times faster with Sartobind® Q or STIC membrane adsorbers. With Sartobind STIC® you will remove contaminants even at high salt concentrations. You can save even more time and buffer by skipping the dilution of cation exchange pools.


Get 10 Times More Binding Capacity

With Sartobind® Q and S for Virus Capture

Sartobind® Q and S membrane adsorbers offer binding capacities >10 times higher than resins when purifying viruses such as adenovirus, lentivirus and virus-like-particles (VLP) for use in vaccines.


Boost Your Single-use MAb Process

Aggregate Removal with Sartobind® Phenyl

Benefit from buffer savings of 75% compared to resins. The large pores of Sartobind® Phenyl allow for a better accessibility of large molecules to the phenyl groups. Smaller membrane volume and less buffer results in considerable cost savings.


Up to 50% Higher Binding Capacity

Sartobind® 4 & 8 mm Capsules

The void-volume-optimized capsules can display up to 50% higher dynamic binding capacity at 10% breakthrough than conventional absorber capsules. The new design features optimized flow channels, significantly reducing void volume, sharpening breakthrough curves and reducing elution volumes. The result for your practical operations is simply a greater safety against breakthrough and a significant improvement of the robustness of your process.
