Baclyser® WA

Baclyser® WA is a CE-marked medical device and has been developed specially for the sterile filtration of water in the supply pipes of equipment for reprocessing medical devices. It is equipped with a 0.2 μm hollow fibre membrane for microfiltration ensuring bacterial retention resulting in 7 log reduction of Brevundimonas diminuta. This complies with the FDA definition of sterile filtered water. The filter holds back any waterborne microbes in the water system such as Pseudomonas and Legionella bacteria. Filtration does not alter the chemical composition of the water. The Baclyser® WA filter supplies sterile water at a high initial flowrate of 22l/ min. The quick-release coupling of the filter connections and the aqua stop incorporated into the filter inlet allow an easy filter change. After the end of its service life the filter can be disposed of in the appropriate way.
