PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY

Centenary experience in filtration together with high expertise in pharmaceutical industry make Testori the perfect partner to answer to your needs.

Present in the pharmaceutical market for many years, Testori is renewing itself to meet specific solutions required from the market.

Along with R&D investment dedicated to products, Testori has built a new white room for production in GMP (EC 2023/2006) to meet the most demanding requests.

PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY clone

Thanks to R&D investment dedicated to products, Testori has upgraded to the most recent regulations defining quality and conformity for products to be used in pharmaceutical industries, though its brand-new product range: LIFEtes.

Along with GMP production and a white room for manufacturing products ensuring the highest level of quality and safety, LIFEtes is the perfect brand to meet the most demanding requirements.

LIFEtes product range is in conformity with EU (EC 1935/2004 e EC 10/2011) and FDA (CFR 177) regulations.

Moreover, LIFEtes offers products in complete compliance of GMP regulations.

Pharma filtration

Centrifuge filters

Our wovens’ high filtration performance grants a complete recovery of the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients.

Centrifuge filters are widely used in the production of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API).
After the synthesis, the active ingredient is crystallized, isolated, and washed from the mother liquid.

The rotation provides a high centrifugal force that allows the suspended solids to settle on the inner surface of a drum covered by a permeable textile filter.

Testori produces filters for all types of centrifuge machines:

  • Centrifuge Bags

  • Centrifuge Liners

  • Inverting Centrifuge Bags

Our centrifuge filters are now available with the new LIFEtes quality, where wovens and accessories fully conform to EU regulations (EC 1935/2004 and EC 10/2011) and FDA regulations (CFR 177)

Moreover, our LIFEtes bags, liners and inverting bags are entirely produced following GMP (EC 2023/2006).

Discover the benefits

We produce customized filter bags for vertical axis top discharge centrifuge specifically designed for your needs.

Unique fabrication features will make installation very easy and fast, while the filter media will ensure high filtration performance during washing and isolating phases of the active ingredient.
 


By choosing LIFEtes quality, you will benefit from a product composed of filter medium and accessories respecting EU (EC 1935/2004 e EC 10/2011) and FDA (CFR 177) regulations.

Also, our LIFEtes centrifuge bags are entirely produced following GMP regulation (EC 2023/2006) - from material production to the final filter fabricated in our white room.

Discover the benefits

Our liners for horizontal and vertical peeler centrifuges provide high drainage and an efficient particle retention of the active ingredient (API) or intermediate.

The smooth surface of the fabric grants a complete recovery of the cake and the regeneration of the filter surface. The possibility to fabricate endless liners with thermo-welded joints has been developed to optimize the efficiency of modern peeler machines. Easier and precise installation allow for minimum cake thickness during the peeling step.

Discover the benefits

Perfect balance between high filtration performance and mechanical resistance of Testori’s filter media enables us to realize reliable and safe inverting centrifuge bags.

Our inverting bags can process many production lots thanks to their mechanical resistance to frequent inversions during product discharge and CIP cycles. The optimal cake-release enables the recovery of almost the complete active ingredient (API).

Fluid Bed Bags- Octopus Bags

Compromised filtration efficiency and meticulous attention to details lend to a high level of safety during the different production processes.

In drying, granulation and coating processes made in a fluid bed processor, high-capacity flow combined with complete retention of the particles are most important.

Testori produces high quality fluid bed bags that allow for high air flows. Also, our bags are long-lasting and washable.

All fabrication features are designed to fully match the functional requirements during the filtration process and bag washing.

Antistatic fabrics guarantee a safe discharge of static charges that build up during the process. Fatal explosions are avoided and dust release from the surface is optimized.

Testori’s fluid bed bags are also used in industrial micronization processes, where the active ingredient or excipient is finely grinded. This kind of process often generates very fine particles (< di 5 µm) which require high-performance fluid bags made of filter media with adequate retention capabilities.

By thermo-welding the sleeves, we can reduce the number of seams and stitching holes. Therefore, product loss through stitching holes is reduced significantly with these welded sleeves.


By choosing LIFEtes quality, you will benefit of a product composed of filter media and accessories respecting EU (EC 1935/2004 e EC 10/2011) and FDA (CFR 177) regulations.

Also, our LIFEtes bags, liners and inverting bags are entirely produced following GMP regulation (EC 2023/2006) - from material production to the final filter fabricated in white room
