Latest Addition to Point-of-Use Filter Line Offers Validated Protection Against
Waterborne Pathogens for Up to 62 Days
PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y.--(Business Wire)--
Pall Corporation`s (NYSE:PLL) QPoint Tap Water Filter Assembly, the latest
addition in the company`s line of advanced point-of-use filters for protection
against waterborne pathogens, offers enhanced features, improved performance and
a longer capsule life of up to 2 months. With a fixed, chrome docking station
and exchangeable filter capsule, the filter assembly reduces waste and costs
while simplifying the installation and exchange process. The filter capsule is
designed and validated for retention of a broad spectrum of waterborne pathogens
frequently found in drinking water such as Legionella spp., Pseudomonas
aeruginosa, non-tuberculous mycobacteria, Escherichia coli, Aspergillus
fumigatus and Cryptosporidium parvum. These pathogens are known to cause
infections in immunocompromised and vulnerable people.

"An ideal complement to Pall`s already established range of Pall-Aquasafe and
Kleenpak point-of-use water filters, the new QPoint tap assembly provides an
attractive offering with even longer life without compromise on reliability or
quality," says Manfred Vogel, president, Pall Medical. 

QPoint offers an immediate, protective barrier of double layer 0.2 micron
sterilizing grade filtration without restriction on the volume of water used.
The high-technology pre-filtration membrane maintains good flow rates despite
variable water qualities. Retrograde contamination control is enhanced through
the combination of a proven non-leaching bacteriostatic additive molded within
the housing and an inner protective shield against backsplash within the filter
capsule. 

"The complexity of managing microbial contamination of water systems within
large buildings is well recognized. Pall`s point-of-use water filters have been
shown to provide an effective barrier against waterborne pathogens as documented
in numerous scientific publications," says Stefan Rother, vice president, Pall
Medical Water Global. "QPoint is the logical next step. It combines our know-how
in point-of-use filtration with more modern technologies while offering further
advantages to our customers such as improved logistics, better handling and
reduced waste." 

The QPoint assembly has been validated under laboratory and multi-center field
site conditions and received drinking water and food approvals at national and
international levels. Emergency hotlines are available for many countries,
enabling rapid response and deliveries in case of critical contamination with
Legionella spp. and other waterborne pathogens.
