Filter Membrane Chemical Compatibility Chart

Matthew W. Moss, PharmD
International Journal of Pharmaceutical Compounding

This poster is an excellent resource for pharmacies that compound sterile products. This large, full-color compatibility chart features 101 liquid chemicals and 11 filters. Chemicals are classified as compatible, having limited compatibility, not being compatible, or without available data. Detailed descriptions of each filter with respect to membrane, hydrophilicity, protein binding, pore size, and common uses are listed at the bottom of the chart. This poster could be placed near any cleanroom or IV hood for use as a reference.
