Bioburden Control

Removing microorganisms is often done at multiple stages of processing. Your application determines the level of bacteria control required for product safety and branding. We help you choose the right filter for each location in the process to achieve your goals.

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.
