Infusion Filters and Filter Systems
I.V.STAR® Filter – Safe and reliable
Infusion therapies have become indispensable in everyday clinical practice, e.g. for parenteral nutrition, volume substitution or administration of medication, daily preparation of a variety of infusions and applications to the patient. This does not only create a heavy workload for physicians and nurses, it also carries a high risk especially for sensitive departments such as neonatology, intensive care or immunosuppressed patients. We help raising the safety of your patients and the hygiene standards to a higher level. The consistent use of our various I.V.STAR® filter and filter systems enables you to effectively eliminate microorganisms, particles and also air from the infusion system.
The I.V.STAR® range contains filter in various sizes and with different filter membranes:
The filter of the I.V.STAR® series contain a 0.2 µm hydrophilic polyether sulfone (PES) filter membrane for the retention of particles and microorganism as well as elimination of air. The I.V.STAR® filter with this membrane are available with a filter surface area of 1.6 cm², 4.5 cm² and 10 cm². The housing color is transparent white.
Additionally, all I.V.STAR® contain a 0.02 µm hydrophobic Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) membrane for ventilation of the filter. All I.V.STAR® filter are integrable in customer-specific infusion set configurations and can be operated with all common infusion pumps.
