This company has been serving the critical needs of their client base since 1984. They have pioneered filtration technologies for the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical marketplace and have been instrumental in developing the standards which govern sterile filtration today. In the early 2000s, they expanded our product offering into the emerging single-use systems market by building our capacity from the ground up.
