IMUGUARD III - PL
Leukocyte Filter System for Red Blood Cells
Stable, Rapid Filtration of Leukocytes and Microaggregates
IMUGARD III is a leukocyte removal filter system made from biocompatible polyurethane material. Highly porous, this material provides stable filtration of leukocytes and microaggregates.
Within the filter, patented technology ensures optimal pore size distribution and pore density. Entrapment of leukocytes is achieved mainly by pore size distribution within the filter, with very limited cell-material interaction. The absence of cell or protein activation yields blood products of very high purity.
Made from unique microporous polyurethane filter material for biocompatibility
Stable and specific pore size for reliable filtration
Average residual leukocyte count below 2 × 105
Requires no rinsing
Easy to handle
Color-coded clamps for easy identification
IMUGARD III-PL for Platelets
The IMUGARD III-PL filter is a hard-housing filter designed to remove leukocytes and microaggregates from platelet preparations. Each filter system is equipped with a spike, clamps and tubing. The filter housing material is semitransparent to make monitoring the filtration process easier.
Available in lab and bedside versions, the IMUGARD III-PL features a bypass line on the lab version to remove air from the transfer bag. The bedside version features a drip chamber and a roller clamp below the filter to adjust flow to the patient.
Filters platelet concentrate for volumes equivalent to platelets produced from six Buffy Coats
Offers greater than 90 percent platelet recovery
