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.

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.”
