The new product is the first from the QuadraPure scavenging resins range to be available in ready-to-use cartridge format. It is designed to remove contaminants - residual metals and organic impurities - from synthetic products and waste streams.
Reaxa claims its pre-loaded macroporous cartridges will deliver product clean-up, achieving target toxic metal levels on a single pass, with less than one per cent loss of product.
"This compares with typically reported 10-15 per cent loss of product using traditional carbon clean-up," said the firm.
In addition, the firm claims that other benefits of using cartridge filtration include a large reduction in solvent usage and a major reduction in metal contaminated waste - all of which is concentrated on the resin and retained in the cartridge.
"Cartridge-format scavenging promises to bring a step chance in process re-engineering and play a major role in securing performance, cost and environmental compliance targets in the next generation of high-performance pharma production systems," said Pete Jackson, Reaxa CEO.
UK-based Reaxa has been working with filtration specialist Clear Edge on the product development and two sizes of pre-loaded cartridges are being developed with the smaller units already available for use in early phase applications.
The firm already has a range of 10 macroporous and microporous QuadraPure metal scavenging resins.
By expanding the range of products, the latest QuadraPure scavengers extend clean-up performance to solve a wider range of metal contamination problems in pharma processing, said the firm.
