Our filters are used to remove microorganisms from fluids in multiple phases of a process. Bioburden filters remove bacteria from pure water distribution lines to protect laboratory and sterile processing operations.
Bioburden control refers to preventing bacteria from entering the system, while bioburden reduction means removing most, but not all microbes. Sterilization would be the process of removing all bacteria which is performed in the final step before packaging.
For more practical information on using filters for bioburden control, see the Resources list below.
