Membrane filtration, broadly employed in pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and chemical procedures, has already proved as a valuable means of cleaning and filtering waste liquid and industrial procedure liquid. Furthermore, use of spiral and tubular sheath plants to screen filths from drinking water has been recently started in areas where the traditional management proved to be wasteful.


The preparation of pharmaceutical solutions needs their passage over a thin polymeric film comprising several minute apertures. The intention is to eliminate nonviable and viable elements in order to sterilize the solution. Elements can be retained by electrostatic attraction, entrapment, or sieving. The major aperture size that would take sterilized filtrate is 0.2 microns. Membrane filters are either hydrophilic or hydrophobic. The rate of flow from a filter is affected by hindrance in the filter, pressure of the solution, and viscosity. Filters are usually composed of polytetrafluoroethylene, polycarbonate, nylon 66, polyvinylidene difluoride, polysulfone, or mixed esters of cellulose. In selecting a membrane filter, various factors such as filter holder, particulate load, fluid volume, compatibility, and pore size need to be taken into consideration. Several tests exist to estimate the reliability of filters. Filters are valuable in testing finished products for sterility. The usage of an in-line filter at the time of administration of large-volume parenteral (LVP) solutions can inhibit the introduction of microorganisms, air, and other particles into the patient’s body.

Treatments in which a 0.2-micron filter may be counter-positioned include drugs for which pharmacologic characters are changed by the membrane filter; drugs that adhere to the membrane; low-volume infusions; low-dose infusions; and lipid emulsions. Pharmacy researcher needs an in-depth sightedness of filtration principles, properties of filters, and use of filters in the filtration of pharmaceutical solutions. Membrane filtration technique is applied in numerous stages of drug production and development ranging from production-scale development to lab research. Applications of membrane filtration technique comprise large-scale drug manufacture, virus removal, drug screening, process and laboratory water purification, sample preparation, protein separation, and lab-scale cell culturing. High-quality pre-requisites and strict regulatory standards in the pharmaceutical industry have earned membrane filtration procedures an important position in drug development. Membrane filtration procedures help to confirm protection and effectiveness of the drug by eliminating impurities throughout the drug production process. Developments in drug production coupled with a wide range of uses of membrane filtration techniques in the pharmaceutical industry are anticipated to boost the global pharmaceutical membrane filtration market during the forecast period. However, strict regulatory standards are anticipated to hamper the market from 2017 to 2025. Novel uses from the biopharmaceutical area are expected to get demand for pharmaceutical membrane filtration market.
