General description

Device Configuration: 2 canisters

Steritest® NEO is a membrane filtration device for sterility testing of filterable pharmaceutical products. The device simplifies every aspect of testing, from handling to traceability. The closed system minimizes false positives and offers the highest levels of quality and reliability. This device ensures that pharmaceutical products are never exposed to the environment during the testing process. This test system offers an optimized and fully regulatory compliant testing process when used with the Steritest® Symbio pump, specific accessories and high-quality culture media and rinsing fluids. The Steritest® NEO device for liquids in cartridge includes a short (20 mm) single needle for easy and safe access to cartridge or small soft plastic container and a separate vent needle. The blue canister base indicates mixed cellulose esters (MCE) membrane. The membrane provides an optimal filtration flow rate for standard products.


The Steritest® NEO device for liquids in cartridge is used for sterility testing of liquids without antimicrobial activity
